- When I first visited the Cape Verde Islands, back in 1986 and 1987, I would not have guessed that this marked the beginning of a long and intensive relationship with the islands, their people and their wildlife. In the course of these early visits, which focused on endemic birds and seabirds, it became clear that the situation of many taxa was dramatic and decisive steps to safeguard their continued existence were urgently needed. After consultations with local authorities, it was agreed that an action plan should be drafted and during the following eight years I worked in Cape Verde for prolonged periods each year, engaging both in research and educational activities. One of the outcomes of this was the designation of a number of areas as Natural Reserves protected by law, thus laying the basis of the network of protected areas that we know today.
