The recent approval of the project "Touristic and Environmental Development of Vila Formosa”, in the municipality of Odemira, is the latest threat to the natural values of the Alentejo coast.
At stake is a mega-touristic venture involving the occupation and urbanization of 55 hectares, in the Natural Park of Southwest Alentejo and Costa Vicentina, a Special Protection Area for Birds and Site of Community Importance "Southwest Coast", both part of Natura 2000 Network.
Since the Government has not listened to Quercus’ opinion and enabled the project, we had no choice but to proceed with the lawsuit we are working on and we rely on everyone who can make a contribution, no matter how big or small. Everyone give whatever they can afford.
We appeal to all citizens to collaborate with a small donation to raise the amount needed to keep this court action and protect a heritage that belongs not only to the locals but also to all of us.
