Ecology – 4 chapters
The small Mediterranean island is known for receiving the boats of the migrants who risk their lives in order to escape Africa for Europe. But this isolated piece of land holds a secret: a clinic that shelters, heals and performs surgery on tens of injured marine turtles each year. What seems as a drop of water in the ocean is actually a necessity for the survival of the Mediterranean.
October is a transition month in the little coastal town of Peniche, north of Lisbon. Warm sunny days give way to autumn. The north Atlantic depressions start producing cloud cover, strong winds, temperature drop and, most importantly, large swells that surfers from all over the world come hunting for. But surprises await those who look a little further and ask questions.
