On the 20th anniversary of ATN, we celebrate life and nature.

On the 20th anniversary of ATN, we celebrate life and nature. At this time, we also want to recognize the determination that has helped us reach this far with our mission despite difficulties and challenges. 

The dream of creating and preserving natural areas has now lasted for 20 years. We know that we still have a long way to go before all of the world's ecosystems are restored, resilient and adequately protected. 

Today more than ever, the conservation and restoration of natural areas requires work and asset management, not just regulation. It requires action by citizens, companies, social partners and research teams, with strong partnerships at local, regional, national and European level.

We need to work together! 

Our team does this every day, and for this I express my thanks to: Sílvia Lorga, Ana Nunes, Carlos Pacheco, João Neves, Marco Ferraz, Abel Coito, José Dinis and Joaquim Amador. All of them in their own way contribute something very important to ATN.

We also want to say a sincere thank you to our partners and friends. >

It has been a pleasure to share our 20 years with you.

We hope to be able to have a celebration in person with you very soon.
