Corvo Island
  • To create a seabird colony based in artificial nests, with an expected occupancy rate of 10%.
  • To create a predator-free area that will be managed to improve breeding habitat for seabirds.
  • To survey and map the exotic invasive plant species in Corvo.
  • To train groups in Corvo in techniques to control and eradicate invasive alien plant species.
  • To study and produce a concise best-practice guide for invasive alien rodents control and eradication in inhabited islands.
  • To list and tag all domestic cats in the island.
  • To prepare an operational plan for the eradication of rats, cats. goats and sheep from the island.
  • To produce public awareness contents to be presented in the environmental centre and improve tourist pedestrian tracks.
  • To produce signs, maps, leaflets and audio-visual content about the fauna of Corvo.
  • To create an interactive virtual centre about the seabirds of Azores.

Vila Franca do Campo Islet

  • To evaluate the presence and if necessary to eradicate rats and mice.
  • To define preventive measures to avoid future recolonization by rodents.
