The Ministry of Production (PRODUCE) has pre-approved the National Action Plan for the Conservation of River Dolphins (Inia geoffrensis and Sotalia fluviatilis) and the Amazonian Manatee (Trichechus inunguis). This bill will be available for review for 30 days at the following link: goo.gl/0jPqaQ. Suggestions will be accepted until May 21st, 2017.

This achievement was promoted by PRODUCE with the participation of ProDelphinus, among others. This document aims to ensure the survival of these three charismatic species which are of great importance to the aquatic ecosystems of the Amazon.
