CONSERVATION Projection and Research Unit
Projection and Research Unit
Field research in the protected areas is important because it allows trusted scientific data to be generated in order to make decisions. ASVO saw the need to rely on groups on volunteers that could contribute to the proposed objectives set by the Conservation Areas in the subject of research.

Also ASVO has Sea Turtle conservation stations, where, not only are we conserving a species in danger of extinction, but we are trying to project environmental education in the communities, and this unit place an important role. The volunteers are all adults over 18 years old, and the majority are students or graduates of different areas related to conservation such as: Biology, Wildlife Management, Forestry engineers or other areas.

For those who do not belong in this academic category, it is not statutory. We also value acquired knowledge, experience and volunteers with good team skills. All volunteers with the UIP receive training in order to improve their scientific performance.
