AN ASSET FOR PEOPLE
Did you know that elephants for up to 30km a day in the wild, and that the most recent fossilised tracks of a straight-tusked elephant were found in a sand dune in Portugal?
We look forward to bringing the wonder of elephants to life through our Discovery Centre, where visitors can learn about Pangea’s resident elephants, their wild cousins in Africa and Asia, and other species of native Portuguese wildlife.
Students and volunteers will be recruited to help us implement our nature restoration programme and monitor the impact of our resident elephants as megaherbivores on the ecology of the site. As a result, we can adjust our own management approach and share the findings with the wider ecologist community.
Working with local communities and businesses will be a priority, from buying supplies to promoting local nature-based enterprises to our supporters.
