For the minister, the law that places obligations and responsibilities of all is essential. But also needed is the committment of the various institutions involved in animal rights and against abuse.

Mora said that in two months the MEP will launch a  Programa de Ambiente (Environment Progream) which will be linked to academic subjects and incorporate respect to the axis of both pets, as wild animals.
