To the east of the capital city of Lisbon and stretching across 10,000 square miles of southern Portugal, as far as the hills of the Spanish border, lies an area of outstanding natural beauty that is rich in bio-diversity and supportive of a multitude of wildlife species, many of them endangered or endemic to the region, including over 100 species of birds, numerous amphibians, bats and one of the world’s most endangered big cats – the Iberian lynx. It is one of the most important natural habitats in Western Europe. And it’s under threat. AOTE photojournalist Chris Weston explains why.
