About the Book
This is a record of a short trip to view the wildlife of the Alentejo region of Portugal, especially focusing on the efforts of FFI and its local partners to revive the fortunes of the Iberian lynx and the black vulture. We saw several beautiful old towns on the way, as well as finishing with a brief stay in Lisbon.
The bird pictures are disappointing, but I've included them alongside the cultural aspects of the tour, as the book wouldn't have been complete without them.
