With a profound knowledge of Portugal’s natural values, we seek to spread and promote this wealth through nature tourism activities, arousing the curiosity and awareness of our costumers for these aspects and to the importance of preserving this heritage. Our specific activities of observation, photography and nature interpretation are combined with the hikings that we carry out, becoming an enriching experience from a physical, psychological and cognitive point of view. We organize specific programs for the observation and interpretation of nature (bird watching, for example), hiking, photographic tours and wildlife photography – in particular through photo-hides.
Fernando Romão is the face of the activities that WILDLIFE PORTUGAL develops within the scope of nature tourism, nature and wildlife photography.
From a very early age Fernando found interest in wildlife, giving special attention to birdwatching. With almost 30 years of experience leading guided tours and excursions to wilderness areas in Portugal and Spain he has also been involved in several projects related to ecotourism, nature conservation and photography. Over the years he has also undertaken specific training in the area of Nature Tourism and Adventure Sports, as well as nature interpretation. He has been Naturetrek’s tour leader for several years and although he specialises in birdwatching he is a naturalist, with knowledge that extends to butterflies and dragonflies, flowers, reptiles, amphibians and wild mammals. A passionate lover of biodiversity, he keeps a record of his observations on iNaturalist.
WILDLIFE PORTUGAL also has the support and backing of Rewilding Europe, a European foundation whose mission is to promote the creation of more spaces for wildlife and to promote nature tourism in these natural areas.
