Cork Forest Conservation Alliance

Cork Forest Conservation Alliance

The Cork Forest Conservation Alliance campaigns globally for the protection and preservation of the Mediterranean cork forests, its inhabitants and biodiversity, through education, direct action, and partnerships with communities, businesses and governments.

Founded in 2008, Cork ReHarvest has led the cork recycling movement in the US and Canada, helping to collect and recycle some of the 13 billion natural corks that are produced each year. Equally important is its work to educate the public about the Mediterranean cork forests.

São Marcos da Serra - discover a different Algarve

São Marcos da Serra - discover a different Algarve

São Marcos da Serra is an ancient settlement.

There have been several discoveries that found artefacts from the 1st and 2nd century in the Sitio da Sapeira and Monte Branco.

Also the Arabian toponyms Alcaria, Benafátima and Corte Mourao certify the Arab occupation in this zone. In the coat of arms of the parish you can clearly see this influence.
