Also included in the cd-rom is an educational guide to the lagoon of Albufeira ‘Já ouviste fallar na Lagoa de Albufeira?. Written accessibly the booklet provides an excellent illustrated guide to among others the nature of wetlands and to the benefits they provide, the global Ramsar network, and major plants and animals of the lagoon.

Additionaly, the cd-rom contains a brief presentation of a photographic exhibition o­n ‘Les Marejals de la Safor’ as well as two brochures produced by the project.
