The two Range States have developed a bi-national action plan to promote the exchange of scientific, technical and legal information as well as training of professional staff and park rangers to coordinate conservation measures. Research is being promoted to better understand the ecology and biology of the species as well as factors preventing the recovery of individual groups. Monitoring is being enhanced to collect more data on distribution, abundance and threats. Educational activities and media campaigns are contributing to better awareness of the Huemul´s poor conservation status. The Signatories prepare an annual report on progress in implementing the Action Plan for submission to the CMS Secretariat and to the Argentine-Chilean Environmental Commission. Annual meetings are being held, with each Signatory alternately acting as host. The CMS Secretariat acts as depositary of the MOU.
