The Active-CIA Island Commission acts in Maranhão, Piauí and Ceará since 2006 and due to the impact of the oil spill, the area needs a systematic monitoring, being carried out by FaunaMar projects and Solidarity Fishing. Although there are surveys, the region still has lack of scientific data on manatee (Piauí has the largest native manatee population in Brazil) and marine turtles in the far west of Ceará. These are endangered species at national level (MMA, 2013) and international (IUCN, 2019).

In addition, the work in the area is enhanced by the low range of environmental awareness to communities. The proposal could also increase the resource persons index for the first calls of beach strandings. The lack of community involvement in shared decision making processes contributes to many local problems, with it, the CIA proposes strengthens them to search for their rights. Failure to understand the areas and species may result in social and environmental collapse.
