From 2009 to last week The center received 14,137 animals, of which 11,305 were "alive" and 5,572 (50%) were returned to the wild, a percentage "quite satisfactory given the figures obtained from national centers".noted Fabia Azevedo.

This number "is increasing every year" and by 2019 "already exceeds 2,000", a reflection of which "know the center" increasingly, leading it to say that "awareness is the most important thing for RIAS".

The first years were essentially dedicated to the recovery of the center's equipment, only then was it possible to focus on "consolidating the technical team", establishing and implementing protocols, and improving the technical level.
More recently it may be possible for the center to "devote more" to scientific research and environmental awareness ", the latter being" the focal point of the next ten years ".
Being a hospital for wildlife is "not like the day" claims Fabia, which is surprising every day with new situations, such as "killing storks and animals kept in illegal captivity", which "always seems to come true".
The animals electric it is difficult to treat and rehabilitate, however, two eagles who suffered burns, one of which was marked with locatorthree or four days later "was already on his migration to Africa, which was surprising, "he concludes.
