Faia Brava, Portugal

The Faia Brava area in the north-east part of Portugal is part of the Rewilding Area 'Western Iberia.'In 2014 13 Sayaguesa cows and 7 Maronesa cows (together with a herd of nearly 50 Garrano-horses) have been released, to bring back natural grazing in the two reserves (including partial fencing and internal de-fencing measures). The Faia Brava area is part of the Coa-valley, famous for its ancient rock-carvings from aurochs, deer horses and other species. In the area a very beautiful museum tells the story of Aurochs and the history of the local people. Taurus foundation has a cooperation with ATN and sells olive oil from the area.
