Uma língua é o lugar donde se vê o Mundo e em que se traçam os limites do nosso pensar e sentir. Da minha língua vê-se o mar. Da minha língua ouve-se o seu rumor, como da de outros se ouvirá o da floresta ou o silêncio do deserto. Por isso a voz do mar foi a da nossa inquietação. — Vírgilio Ferreira

On Monday, September 26th, we celebrated the International Day of the Sea with a special assembly. In an initiative organised by the Portuguese department, in partnership with the #UNESCOSchool team and @clipmarinesociety, Middle School students celebrated this special day with music, poetry and a special guest: Ms Marieta Mihoval, a researcher with the CETUS Project. 


"CETUS Project is a cetacean monitoring program in the Macaronesian region that aims at collecting whale and dolphin occurrences to determine their distribution and abundance in this vast region of the Atlantic. This is possible thanks to a partnership between different research institutions, led by CIIMAR | University of Porto and the company TRANSINSULAR | Grupo ETE. Since 2012, TRANSINSULAR has offered its cargo ships to be used as a platform of opportunity to monitor routes between Continental Portugal and Madeira, Azores, Canary and Cape Verde islands. The final research goal is to provide new insights into the distribution and abundance of cetaceans, delivering habitat models to map, explore and predict cetacean hotspots in the area, addressing international and European conservation priorities and supporting management decisions."
