Sado river flows in a South/North direction through 175 km from its springs in the Caldeirão hills before entering the Atlantic Ocean in an estuary in the city of Setúbal.

Scientists are worried because of some terrible changes that will completely modify the life and the environment in our region, if we do nothing to avoid all kind of climate changes.

They’ve predicted severe heat waves and less raining in the spring and summer.

Sado’s discharge will have reduced to only 60% in 2100.
