Consultancy for Environmental Solutions

Aiuká assists in the reduction of potential impacts on marine wildlife and directs protection actions to wildlife in a preventive manner by means of its services and activities aimed at the preparedness and emergency response management in case of incidents arising from oil exploration and production. Aiuká also coordinates activities carried out in marinas, ports, terminals and refineries. In addition to these services, it develops a series of courses and training not only for the external public, but also for the internal one. Check out.

The Wildlife Protection Plan (in Portuguese: PPAF) is an important strategic tool that indicates and directs response actions in case of incidents with oil spills. It is one of IBAMA’s requirements during the permitting process of new ventures in the energy and petroleum industries. In addition, it provides mapping of the areas and the wildlife that may be potentially affected after an incident. The plan also concerns action strategies for wildlife protection during an incident and includes general information about the animal species's needs, conducing to a more efficient response.


Aiuká is a pioneer in Brazil in implementing plans and response actions for the Monitoring Project of Impacts on Platforms and Vessels on Avifauna (PMAVE). This project is required by IBAMA and it is used to direct the response actions in the occurrence of birds on the platform area and its surroundings. This project includes the capture and relocation of birds whose presence may threaten the safety of technicians and the operations. Aiuká also provides animal care, rehabilitation and release of the rescued animals. Necropsies are performed on the animals found dead on the platforms and vessels.

Transportation of

These services are intended to rescue debilitated and/or oiled animals after incidents on shore or offshore.

Aiuká manages the response, rescues and provides the care needed for animals in order to rehabilitate and integrate them into their environment again.


A series of professional exchange programs are held to stimulate sharing of technical expertise with other organizations, as well as encouraging this exercise within Aiuka’s activities-related practices.

It enables constant reviews of our organization's practices, while enhancing the training of our team in the best and most up to date practices.


Aiuká offers courses for professionals and students of Biology, Veterinary Medicine and Oceanography, in addition to those interested in wildlife preservation.

Besides themes programmed by the institution itself, Aiuká has been demanded by other entities to share its technical knowledge since its operations center was opened, in November of 2014. New facilities provide an ideal infrastructure for courses, training and ventures of a kind, with a room with capacity for 25 people.


Different types of training are given by Aiuká and, among them, Responsible On-Board Technician, aimed at the training of SMS technicians that work on maritime platforms so that they respond and communicate any occurrence involving birds.

Aiuká is a precursor in that kind of training and the only wildlife management company that gives courses aboard of maritime units.

Training Program

Other kind of training is the Continued Training Program for Response to Wildlife in Oil Spill, aimed for technicians in the area of environment, energy industry and petroleum. They are trained in fundamental procedures for a first response to wildlife affected by oil, among them, an appropriate handling and the monitoring of animals.

Company’s professionals still participate or give training in other countries, mostly for their participation as team members of the International Bird Rescue (IBR) and International Fund of Animal Welfare (IFAW).


The practical exercise allows the practical training of professionals that will respond to, and control possible emergencies involving oil spill, evaluate the efficiency of emergency plans, test available resources, analyze related procedures, as well as prepare a response team to face true critical situations.

Aiuká assists in the planning and preparation, and participates in this kind of exercise, which shows a theoretical basis and involve different possible or intended scenarios in risk analysis studies.


Aiuká’s work is extended to the national territory in field trips to prepare Wildlife Protection Plans (in Portuguese: PPAF) for licensing exploration activities of energy and petroleum companies. This work is intended to make a strategic evaluation for the response to oiled wildlife and also includes meetings with competent agencies, visits to universities, research centers and Wildlife Screening and Rehabilitation Centers.

Participation in

Periodically, Aiuká attends to international events that join specialists of the areas of wildlife conservation, planning, response, rehabilitation and research about petroleum spills and their impacts on wildlife. An example is the world meeting “Effects of Oil on Wildlife Conference (EOW), held every two years and that, in 2015, it was co-organized by Aiuká and International Bird Rescue, in Anchorage, Alasca (USA).
