 CENTRE FOR MARINE FAUNA 


   

Because of the difficult conditions of the marine species of the Gulf de Urabá-Darién, and on the basis of a study funded by the  Gobernación de Antioquia (DAMA) and CORPOURABA, we have proposed the establishment of a Centre for Marine Fauna allowing for the rehabilitation and reintegration of marine mammals, marine birds and turtles in their natural environment. It also will serve to sensitise the population, to generate research on  marine life, to set up programmes, policies and laws to protect vulnerable species and implement marine protected areas or sanctuaries. Currently a Business Plan for the Centre is being developed, which will be followed by an Operations and Implementation Plan.
