Management plans for 12 Natura 2000 sites were completed. An important achievement was the establishment of good cooperation between the scientific community and the tourism and fisheries’ sectors. Awareness-raising activities
were also successful both in the Azores and on mainland Portugal, as shown by the continuing high demand
for the project’s awareness-raising educational kit. This project involved the whole Azores community (fishermen,
students, scientific community and local population) together with the economic agents (tourism operators)
and the regional authorities responsible for the Natura 2000 coastal and marine sites management.
