Comments: After ceasing activities the Argentine Center of Primates (CAPRim) -where the EBCo is located now- the MACN asked to the National Council of Scientific and Technical Research (CONICET) for the transference of the facilities, equipment and personnel with the objective of creating a new Biological Station. In May 2001 the CONICET approved the proposal and in September 2001 the MACN initiated the activities destined to develop new scientific and educational activities in the Biological Station.
