Corvo ,  March 26, 2019

Marta Guerreiro says opening of Corvo Wild Birds Interpretation Centre will contribute to the island's tourism dynamics

The Regional Secretary for Energy, Environment and Tourism stated today that the Corvo Wild Birds Interpretation Centre (CIASC) represents a "very important contribution to the island's dynamics." It is focused on bird watching and reconciles the tourist interest with environmental concerns in an extraordinary manner."
"Corvo has been increasingly sought after by those interested in this matter," said Marta Guerreiro. The government official spoke on the sidelines of a joint visit with President of the Government, Vasco Cordeiro, to CIASC.
For Marta Guerreiro, it is important to "share" the experience of bird watching with an explanation about local fauna and flora in order to "promote more knowledge and raise more interest" on these themes.
The Regional Secretary emphasised that this centre "is the best equipped with more technology and provides various contents using audiovisual resources to further raise" the interest of visitors in these topics.
CIASC is a space of environmental education and awareness located in the heart of Corvo Natural Park and Biosphere Reserve. It features an exhibition based on a series of rigorous technical contents presented through various technological solutions that aim to involve visitors and make them part of this project. This is the case of the bird watching register as it invites birders who are visiting Corvo to share some of sightings, thus providing additional information to that already available.
In addition to the opening of the new CIASC exhibition, the expansion and redevelopment works of Corvo Wild Birds Recovery Centre have also been completed. The intervention included the creation of a quarantine room, the expansion and improvement of aviaries as well as the installation of new furniture and equipment.
The Secretary for the Environment pointed out that there are about two dozen Environmental Interpretation Centres in the Azores, located throughout the archipelago's, which are fundamental to promote the Region's environmental heritage. Last year, they received more than 368 thousand visitors.
According to Marta Guerreiro, this is another step towards the promotion and sustainability of the destination as one of the main goals defined under the Programme of the Government. They are primarily focused on a differentiated and exclusive offer for tourists in harmony with all the components that make up the Azores' identity, including their social and environmental components.
