Target species | Priority fauna species in Laurel Forest: 

The recovery of natural forest will also benefit some animal species present in the area. Of great importance there is the Priolo (Azores Bullfinch) - Pyrrhula murina - a priority species in annex I of Bird Directive, the only Azorean endemic bird present in this area of São Miguel island (Azores) and which population is reduzed to close to 500-800 couples. It was one of the most threatened birds in Europe being classified by the  BirdLife International as "Critically endangered". Their population had a great recover in the recent years thanks to conservation actions developed in the area by LIFE Priolo Project (2003-2008) , alowing it conservation status to be raisen to just "Endangered".
The Woodpingeon - Columba palumbus azorica - is a priority subspecies in the annex I of Birds Directive, will be other beneficiary of this project, as well as many endemic subspecies of passerines, specially Goldcrest (Regulus regulus azoricus), Blackcap (Sylvia atricapilla Atlantis), Grey wagtail (Motacilla cinerea patriciae) and Blackbird (Turdus merula azorica).

This recovery works will also be important for Chiroptera species present in the area: the Greated Mouse Eared Bat (Myotis myotis) and the Azorean Bat (Nyctalus azoreum),this last being the only endemic mammal in the Azores and it is classified as Rare in the Portuguese Redlist of Vertebrates (2006).
