During the summer of 2010, forest fires ravaged parts of Madeira, a Portuguese island and home to Europe’s rarest seabird, Zino’s Petrel. However, BirdLife supporters around the world rallied to help.
Staff from SPEA (BirdLife in Portugal) and the Parque Natural da Madeira – PNM keep working to restore the areas destroyed by the forest fires.
