A small project, based on my several trips into the mainland of Portugal, more specifically in the North Eastern part.

These images want show the damages of the several wildfires that Portugal suffered in last years. From 2016 to 2018 the uncontrolled wildfires swept away a great part of the Natural Reserves as well as hundreds human of lives. What once were considered valuable forests to preserve now they are only a remnant part of those wild areas. Thanks to the population contribution and authorities, the re-planting forest plan has already started, and new saplings started to sprout, in hope to recover that wildlife sanctuary and get back those lost ecosystems.
