On 12/12/18, a technical visit was made by the Renova Foundation to the land where the CETRAS-ES (Wildlife Screening and Rehabilitation Center of Espirito Santo) will be built, to verify the area. Next, a meeting was held with the Municipal Government of Serra, IBAMA (Brazilian Institute for the Environment and Renewable Natural Resources) and IEMA (State Institute for the Environment and Water Resources) for alignment on the process to donate land to IBAMA. The topographic surveying is planned for 02/01/19.

The Renova Foundation agreed with Ibama (Brazilian Institute of Environment and Renewable Natural Resources) and IEMA (State Institute for the Environment and Water Resources) to provide support to the environmental agencies in the regularization and clearing of the area where the Cetas-ES (Wildlife Screening and Rehabilitation Center of Espirito Santo) will be built, by means of topographic surveying and mapping of land use and occupation.
On 11/27, the conceptual architectural project for the Cetas-MG (Wildlife Screening and Rehabilitation Center of Minas Gerais) was presented to the Renova Foundation and Ibama. The project will be presented to the Technical Board of Biodiversity (CTBio) in December.

Issued, on 10/16, by IBAMA (Brazilian Institute for the Environment and Renewable Natural Resources) were the details of the minimum requirements necessary for the development of the CETAS (Wildlife Screening and Rehabilitation Center of Minas Gerais) also including the specifications of some of the equipment to be installed. The goal of this center is to treat and reintroduce wild animals that were rescued or captured by the inspection agencies, as well as to receive wild animals that were kept in domestic captivity as pets. The construction of two CETAS, one in Minas Gerais and another in Espirito Santo, is a compensatory measure foreseen in TTAC clause 167, and aims at strengthening the structures for screening and reintroduction of wildlife.
On 11/01, IBAMA (Brazilian Institute of the Environment and Renewable Natural Resources) formalized that CETAS-ES (Wildlife Screening and Rehabilitation Center of Espirito Santo) will be built in the area known as Barcelona, ​​in the municipality of Serra (ES). This area is sufficient in size for the construction of a structure for screening and rehabilitation of animals and will be able to attend an number of animals above the average number captured in the state of Espirito Santo, according to the projects presented, besides providing appropriate conditions for handling the animals received. It is worth mentioning that the municipal council of Serra communicated that it will let IBAMA make use of an area of ​​19,977 m² adjacent to the CETAS area, if an expansion of this Center is needed.

There were no relevant facts in September.

The environmental agencies IBAMA (Brazilian Institute for the Environment and Renewable Natural Resources) and IEMA (State Institute for the Environment and Water Resources) defined that the CETAS ES (Wildlife Screening and Rehabilitation Center of Espirito Santo) will be built in the municipality of Serra/ES. The objective of the CETAS is to treat wild animals rescued or captured by inspection agencies and reintroduce them to their natural habitat, as well as to receive wild animals that were kept in domestic captivity as pets. The construction of two CETAS, one in Minas Gerais and another in Espirito Santo, are compensatory measures outlined in TTAC clause 167 and aims to strengthen the facilities for screening and reintroduction of wildlife. Extraordinary TTAC review 1/2018 authorizes the construction of screening centers outside Environmental Area 2. CETAS MG will be built in the municipality of Nova Lima/MG.

There were no relevant facts in July.

This month, the consulting firm Silvestre elaborated this the proposal for structuring the Wildlife Screening and Rehabilitation Center in Minas Gerais (Cetas-MG). This document will be evaluated by IBAMA and, if approved, will serve as a basis for the elaboration of the Term of Reference for the construction and equipment of this Center.

During this period, joint visits were made to the Screening and Rehabilitation Centers for Wild Animals (CETAS) of São Paulo and Maranhao. Representatives from Renova, Ibama-MG, Ibama-ES, IEF and IEMA all attended. The information gathered in these visits will support the joint review of the Term of Reference for building and gearing the Minas Gerais and Espirito Santo CETAS.

The Engineering department also finished the topographic surveying of the construction area of the CETAS-MG. This information and the technical documentation provided by IBAMA, will be the basis for developing the Center’s building project, in the region of Nova Lima.

This period, the technical project of the Center for Screening and Rehabilitation of Wildlife in Minas Gerais (Cetas - MG) was initiated. The socio-environmental and engineering teams of the Renova Foundation verified that it was necessary to collect more information for setting up Cetas in the Nova Lima region. Therefore, activities were planned to collect topographical information and verify registers of the area.

The process for hiring specialized consultants was also finalized. They are to guide the Renova Foundation and the environmental agencies in all aspects; from the design of the Cetas projects to the maintenance of the facilities. This way, it will be possible to carry out joint visits (including representatives of Renova, Ibama and other environmental agencies), requested by IBAMA, to issue the Term of Reference for construction and equipment of the Cetas.

Publication of the Extraordinary Review nº 1/2018 authorizing the construction of the Wildlife Screening Centers (CETAS) outside Environmental Area 2 - which allows the development of the technical project of the CETAS - MG.

In a meeting with the Interfederative Committee (CIF), it was determined that the CIF and the Renova Foundation will publish a joint resolution, related to the legal procedures regarding the construction of the Wild Animal Screening Centers (CETAS) outside Environmental Area 2, which will allow the program activities to start.

Program activities are ongoing.
