Abstract: The Funchal Ecological Park (PECOF) was affected in 2010 by two types of natural disasters: heavy rains and forest fires. In PECOF, rains caused landslides on steep slopes, the overflow of streams due to solid materials that were transported by the flow of water, and damaged the banks. On the other hand, the fire, which occurred six months after the rains, consumed 92% of the total area of the Park, destroying unique Macaronesian flora samples. Due to these events, the Park was very exposed to environmental factors and some protected species habitats were damaged. This work presents some measures for the recovery and requalification of this area, using techniques that meet the needs of ecosystems and space, as well as the objectives that led to the foundation of this protected area in 1994. Some of the proposed measures consist in the deployment and recovery of native species in the burned areas and for the stabilization of slopes that have experienced landslides, and upgrading the water lines by cleaning the sea bed and implementing strategies to reduce the flow and speed. It is also foreseen the installation of new infrastructure (fireplaces, tables and benches, toilets) to return this area to the population
