Drones detect illegal fishing in Desertas

The Madeira News website, with its automated news feed incorporating Google translate, has picked up a report that two individuals were identified today by the Nature Watch Corps team, who are currently on duty in the Desertas Natural Reserve, fishing within the limits of the protection area of ​​that natural reserve.

This team of Nature Watchers currently has, among other equipment, a drone capable of operating in an aquatic environment, which increases its ability to intervene in surveillance and inspection missions.

Orienteering in Funchal

This coming Sunday, September 17th, Clube Aventura da Madeira will promote the ‘Orientação Funchal’ event, which will cover the main arteries of the capital of Madeira, between 10 am and 12 pm.

The event is included in the Regional Orienteering Calendar of the Portuguese Orienteering Federation and the RAM Orienteering Association and is part of the European Mobility Week activities program promoted by Funchal City Council.

To date, 250 registrants have been confirmed, a number that could increase with the possibility of it still being possible to participate in the open, Easy and Medium routes, aimed at the general population.

All information about the event is available at:  http://oripark.camadeira.com/

A new, vastly improved “search” facility has been introduced allowing readers to search (box in the sidebar above) on any word or phrase used in any of the posts over the last sixteen years. Previously the search facility only returned matches on headings rather than the entire content. It remains to be seen whether this will slow the blog down – fingers crossed! If it works it should move the blog even further ahead of the increasing number of imitators, providing a huge resource for visitors and residents.
