The Costa Rica News (TCRN) – The National System of Conservation Areas (Sinac) and the Marine Conservation Area of Cocos Island intends to implement the second phase of training for officials who monitor the area.
Authorities conducted a training program on the biology, fisheries and conservation of the species that live in or visit the park and its surroundings.
“New knowledge will enable our staff to improve conservation and management practices in the area of Cocos Island, thereby generating a reduction of threats to marine and the terrestrial biodiversity of the island,” said the director of Sinac, Rafael Gutierrez.
Misión Tiburón is responsible for coordinating the project and provide training modules, together with the processing and collecting data in the field in coordination with park staff.
With funds provided by Biomarcc they will be buying a pickup line so teams can release marine organisms and harvest biological data, which speeds up the work of rangers.
