Azores Nature is a project with the aim of helping to develop the birding and nature community of the Azores by supporting the work of partners, supporting research and organising exploration/discovery trips to the Azores for serious birders/naturalists. The Azores can be a bit of a logistical challenge so our aim is to lead focused itineraries which are cost effective in groups. There is still much to discover about the Natural History of the Azores and the emphasis on our trips is contributing to and sharing knowledge about Azores birds and wildlife. Money raised from these trips is channelled back into producing publications and promoting the Azores as a nature destination. Eco-tourism is a fundamental component of effective conservation so our aim is to contribute to the further development of eco-tourism on the Azores.
