São Filipe, Jan 16 (Inforpress) – The scientific community and interested parties will be able to monitor the Gongon reproductive cycle live from the end of January, with live transmission through a camera installed in one of the nests in Bordeira.
This innovation is the result of the national project for the Conservation of Sea Birds in Cabo Verde, Alcyon II, financed by the Mava Foundation and executed in partnership with the universities of Barcelona (Spain) and Coimbra (Portugal) and several Cabo Verdean NGOs. In the island, one of the partners is the Vitó project, which works with Gongon.
Herculano Diniz, a biologist and responsible for the Vitó project, said to Inforpress that at the moment a telecommunications network was being built between Achada Furna and Bordeira, with the installation of a camera to capture the entire reproductive process of this bird.
He said that the equipment is working during the test period and once the site is completed, possibly before the end of this month, it will be made public so that people can access and monitor in real time the reproductive cycle of that species.
