Species Survival Plan

Armistice plan (SSP) for the joint HOD and protection program of the association of Zoos and aquariums (Aza). It is believed that the move is not only a solution for many species who experience a significant drop on the breakwaters. However, in some cases, scientific management programs, including for public education, scientific research, protection and re-introduction, are necessary to reflect gatunes.




In 1984, Puerto Rican power was the first dish to receive SSP, and is considered a green SSP, since the number of staff is more than 50 people and more than 90% of genetic differences are preserved at the age of 100 years or 10 colors. The SSP manages the master plan, which sets out the purpose and purpose of the programme. The goals include education throughout the island, the protection and revival of existing peasants, the creation of a new stake in the support of six similar metapopulations (three in the north and three in the south) and research. The prct SSP has developed many partners over the years, and the correct actions are implemented through the memorandum of understanding between USFWS, prdner and Aza SSP.
