Azores are highlighted in National Geographic offprint

Azores are highlighted in National Geographic offprint

The Regional Secretary for the Environment and the Sea considers that the Azorean presence on the pages of the National Geographic magazine has allowed the Region to be known on the entire planet, due to its extraordinary geodiversity, and has also proved that the Archipelago is a good example in terms of environmental and cultural preservation.
Álamo Menese’s belief was conveyed on Monday during the presentation of an offprint that will be distributed in this month’s edition of the National Geographic magazine, which is dedicated to the two Azorean areas which were classified as World Heritage Sites, the city of Angra do Heroísmo and the Landscape of the Pico Island Vineyard Culture.
For the Regional Secretary, this classification, as well as the ones awarded to Graciosa and Pico as biosphere reserves, “demonstrates the wide richness that the Azores have to offer.”
“This status should be further reinforced with the classification of Flores Island as a biosphere reserve which will take place soon,” added the Secretary.
Álamo Meneses also pointed out that the Azores are a common subject on the pages of the aforementioned magazine, bothe in the Portuguese and in the North American editions, something which demonstrates that “despite being a small territory, the Azores are a vast Region on subjects related to geodiversity.”
