MPs demand protection for Algarve wetlands
Published on 01/02/2018
Four Algarve MPs from the ruling Socialist Party are recommending the classification and preservation of wetlands in the region.
The MPs have submitted a draft resolution to parliament recommending that the government preserves and classifies, among others, the Lagoa wetland that currently is threatened by the construction of a Continente supermarket.
In their proposal, Luís Graça, Ana Passos, António Eusébio and Fernando Anastácio, suggest that the government comes up with a concerted action plan with the Association of Municipalities of the Algarve, in particular with Lagos, Lagoa, Silves, Albufeira and Loulé councils.
