The nature center at Rio Formosa Natural Park had schlocky displays of 2D paintings, propped in glass cabinets, masquerading as dioramas. These were some of the saddest attempts at fake nature that I have ever seen. Still, according to a sign, the reserve was doing good things. Maybe saving a seahorse? And protecting the habitat of a wild purple chicken? I couldn’t quite understand the Portuguese. They also had a pretty neat exhibit on fishing boats, if you are into that.
