The active engagement of UniLúrio in all the phases of the process, especially in the education and monitoring, was essential to keep the community involved. The local people don’t know reading or writing, and few know how to speak Portuguese (national language). Unilúrio obviously is the one keeping records and publishing the most important information related to the LMMA.

Enabling factors

Local University (UniLúrio) involved from the beginning with the LMMA monitoring, turtle conservation, fisheries monitoring and shark education.

Lessons learned

International organizations normally come and go. Unless the support is given through a local organization (UniLúrio) there is no stability to the technical support.
