The species of the native forest are perfectly suited to the soil, relief and climate conditions and provide important functions and services, the ecosystems services, that must be valued and quantified. This is the way to protect the forest.
To create this video report and the script, we read about ecosystems services and the portuguese forest and its value. The filming was done in “Parque Biológico de Gaia”. We also used recordings of Eco-Escolas and YRE files.
This video report was created to participate in the contest “Prémio Floresta e Sustentabilidade 2018/19 “O Valor da Floresta em 3 minutos”, of CELPA, with “Correio da Manhã”and” Jornal de Negócios”.
It is the follow-up and further development of a work done last year, about two representative species of the portuguese forest, to participate in the contest “Uma árvore, uma floresta”, held by” Associação de Professores de Geografia”, included in “Brigada da Floresta Eco-Escolas”.
