CIBIO - Azores

CIBIO - Azores, focuses on the threats to indigenous biodiversity by creating databases, evaluating and monitoring the populations of endemic, alien and invasive species and monitoring environmental quality. A sustainable use of local resources is equally addressed either molecularly through biotechnological research on species of economic value or at an ecosystem level by making our biodiversity an added value for tourism. Knowledge from the multiple sources above mentioned incorporates management plans and assists in the design of environmental management systems, which puts into practice and implements models to support decision-making and management.


CIBIO - Azores is also very committed to raise awareness and involve the community on the sustainable use of natural resources through a wide range of environmental education activities.
