Next June, as every year, A ROCHA Portugal (in partnership with Cardiff University) will organize a Storm-Petrel ringing campaign.

This is a unique opportunity to have an exciting time as part of a research expedition looking into the impacts of climate change on the smallest (and cutest) Atlantic sea bird, the European Storm-Petrel (stormie for short).

Anyone can join, no previous experience needed and you are guaranteed to have an amazing time with the stormies, while enjoying the sun and the beautiful food in the south of Portugal.
