In Visão Magazine cover, for my work writting and illustrating one of the regions with the highest biodiversity in Portugal, Beira Baixa

Visão magazine devoted 13 pages to my work as a naturalist, writing and illustrating a region of Portugal, Beira Baixa, rich in biodiversity and endemic species.

A Revista Visão dedicou 13 paginas ao meu trabalho como naturalista, escrevendo e ilustrando uma região de Portugal, a Beira Baixa, rica pela sua biodiversidade e espécies endémicas.

These are my last 3 books, available in bookstores or sent to any part of the world. 

Alice's books (In Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass) contain slightly different illustrations than usual, as they use local fauna and flora as  background.

My Nature Diary (agenda for 2018), has more than 60  watercolors of passerine birds and their habitats as well as small texts of the habitats where I looked for these species.

Estes são os meus últimos 3 livros, disponíveis nas livrarias ou enviados para qualquer parte do mundo. Os livros de Alice (No país das Maravilhas e Do Outro lado do Espelho), contêm ilustrações um pouco diferentes do habitual , pois usam a fauna e flora local como fundo.
O Diário da Natureza  (agenda para 2018), tem mais de 60 aguarelas de passeriformes  e as paisagens e pequenos textos dos habitats onde os encontro.

About the author

Luisa Ferreira Nunes, was born in Lisbon, Portugal and  studied forest ecology having a PhD in insect ecology.
 The passion for drawing and privacy of the notes of an observer of nature led to the idea that presents itself in the form of a diary with sketches made in a simple manner and without a claim for too much detail.
 The shapes, the colours and impressions captured from observations made during field work can inspire one’s interest for naturalism. This inspiration may be motivated by everyday life observations of what surrounds us.
 The fifth edition of the Nature Journal (2013) celebrates Africa through Southern multicolour flora, the tropical forests, savannahs and deserts.
 As usual, some Nature Journal friends collaborated on this project, they are Pedro Vaz Pinto a conservationist who works hard to recover Sable Antelope populations in  Angola and Will Lawson from South Africa who presents sustainable solutions inspired by the African species and habitats.
