The Federal Attorney's Office for Environmental Protection (Profepa) has, among other tasks, the power to verify compliance with environmental legislation, through inspection and surveillance actions in order to conserve and protect wildlife in national territory.

In order to comply with the above, this agency has a mechanism where citizens can make reports of environmental crimes or to report sightings of wildlife specimens in danger or that put the population at risk.

Another important characteristic is their echolocation system, which allows them to orient themselves in the dark by emitting ultrasonic sounds that bounce off obstacles, the rebound is captured with their ears, giving them an idea of what is around them.

The Vertebrate Zoology Area includes the Divisions in charge of the custody and preservation of specimens of fish, amphibians, reptiles, birds and mammals deposited in the Argentine Museum of Natural Sciences. Each collection is made up of specimens preserved by different techniques, whether they are complete animals or parts of them. Complete specimens, skeletons, skins and tissues are preserved in different ways, among which we can mention: taxidermization, alcohol, formalin and freezing.

The first specimens in these collections date back to the 19th century. At present, almost one hundred thousand specimens are deposited in the Area's collections. The Vertebrate Zoology Area is made up of the following Divisions: Ichthyology (Fishes), Herpetology (Amphibians and Reptiles), Ornithology (Birds) and Mastozoology (Mammals). Each of the Divisions has a Head and Researchers, Fellows and Technicians work in them. On the other hand, undergraduate and graduate students also actively participate in each of them, developing their theses and dissertations. As well as volunteers who actively collaborate with the research work and the maintenance of the collections. Each Division has a team of curators who are responsible for, among other things, providing access to the material, identifying it and ensuring its preservation. The research projects carried out are financed by research grants from the National Council for Scientific and Technical Research (CONICET), the National Agency for Scientific and Technological Promotion (ANPCyT) and numerous international organizations and foundations.
