About CERVAS



CERVAS is the Wildlife Ecology, Rehabilitation and Surveillance Center 

Located in the quiet town of Gouveia, CERVAS is a structure of the Natural Park of Serra da Estrela and aims to detect and solve various problems associated with the conservation and management of wildlife populations and their habitats.

Since 2009, CERVAS is managed by the ALDEIA association, under the guidance of the ICNF (Institute for Nature Conservation and Forests in Portugal), and with the financial support of ANA - Aeroportos de Portugal SA, which through the "Business and Biodiversity" initiative has ensured the management of the center to this date.

Some of the lines of action of CERVAS are:
  • Recovery of injured or debilitated wildlife;
  • Promote environmental awareness through environmental education actions;
  • The support and / or the carrying out of ecological and sanitary monitoring of the populations of wild animals;

Mainly CERVAS is a hospital for wildlife, whose job is to receive and treat wild animals that are found injured or debilitated for later return to nature,whenever possible in the place where they were found.


CERVAS also plays an important role in environmental education of the population, especially the younger generation, to the conservation of nature, promoting interest in the preservation and conservation of the country's natural heritage.
