Members of the U.S. government organization National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) gave a training course on rescuing whales and dolphins. The course was located at the Theme Park Aquatic Mammals in Itamaracá, on the coast of Pernambuco.

Promoted by the National Center for Research and Conservation of Aquatic Mammals, a federal agency linked to the Chico Mendes Institute for Biodiversity Conservation, the initiative aimed to train personnel in rescuing animals caught in nets used for overfishing.

The research center is a reference in Brazil in studies and management programs for the conservation of cetaceans. The focus is on endangered and migratory species.
