The Guimarães Biodiversity Action Plan involves, in addition to a strong participatory component, a technical and research component, which has already identified 12 sampling units throughout the municipality of Guimarães. The aim is to map the whole territory, involving, training and participating in order to protect, conserve and monitor the existing species.

This Plan will be important for the Ave, Selho and Vizela Ecovias projects, which are already on the ground, as well as several other projects to promote the natural heritage.

Over the next year, an analysis and diagnosis will be made, as well as public participation, education and awareness-raising actions that will give rise to technical reports and, subsequently, the drafting of the Guimarães Biodiversity Action Plan.
