Trace elements of extinct lives, or almost extinct, were left around waiting for someone to unravel what, or whom, is behind this disappearance of several whole species from the the face of planet earth. “Guardiões da Natureza” (Nature’s Guardians) gathered the archives and opened these enigmatic cases, solving them due to the help of their detectives team. The day was 29th of October, at the Municipal  Ecocentre of Aveiro, an invitation from Veolia, the room became a true crime scene zone, waiting to be explored. 

The time of the year is known for the spirits wandering around in the mortal world and, as so, it seems that these animals' spirits to whom justice was not made, came to catch the opportunity and ask for help. Even if our detectives were young, they were very attentive to all the clues left behind and being always very astute in their deductions, they were able to close these open cases successfully. 

Due to our laboratory services being at the crime scene, the results were fast to come. Yet, we shall not share them with the public since we are speaking of highly confidential and top secret data. Let's say that our inspectors had a great afternoon full of investigation and went back home with a satisfied smile as well as crucial information to avoid new environmental crimes from happening in their turn. 

For now, investigations are closed yet, with chaos around the Guardiões da Natureza will keep an open eye and of course, will always count with help from their special agents in this mission. It's mandatory to pay attention, whilst the "monsters" from Ecocentre are around may they decide to run away and haunt the streets of Aveiro! We made sure to feed them and give them lots is attention, so that they stayed happy and quiet in their home. Nevertheless, the deal was that Guardiões da Natureza came back for a visit and new fun activities about the environment! 

The “Guardiões da Natureza” is part of the project “Plantar o Futuro” by Agora Aveiro. It was supported by Câmara Municipal de Aveiro and IPDJ - Instituto Português do Desporto e Juventude I.P..
