LIFE VIDALIA comprises a set of volunteering activities which are essayed and tested for the first time in the Azores, giving them a demonstration character for the local socio-economic context. These activities will depend on the engagement of key local stakeholders, such as Third Sector Organizations, Environmental NGO’s and private tourism agents and include activities in the nursery, such as producing plants, or on the intervention areas, namely seed collecting, ecological monitoring, planting endemic species and eradicating invasive species in the intervention areas.
