The Regional Secretariat of Natural Resources, through the Regional Directorate of Environment, joins this year for the first time, to the celebration of the European Day of Natural Parks, celebrated today, 24 May.
 
In this celebration, created by Europarc Federation to promote the sustainable management of protected areas in Europe, the Regional Secretariat of Natural Resources challenges the azoreans to participate in the contest with the theme 'My park. My Passion. My Story '.
 
With this initiative, it is intended that the participants share their passion for nature, either through a story, a song, a photograph, a film, a poem or any other format.
 
The works can be delivered directly into the services of the Natural Parks, sent by email to  This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.

The European award, that applies for all works sent to the Natural Parks of the Azores, will be announced on 5 June, the World Environment Day.
 
This challenge is also released to people who are part of the staff working in protected areas.
 
Associated with this challenge, each Natural Park will still celebrate the anniversary with an event to promote one or more of its Protected Areas, which may be known in parquesnaturais.azores.gov.pt.
