On average, the YRS receives 100 international and national visitors per month.

Because science is our primary scope of action, users are mainly researchers who carry out studies in various disciplines.

We are also very interested in supporting training in socio-environmental areas and in increasing society’s environmental consciousness. Therefore, a large percentage of our users are professors and undergraduate and graduate students, as well as professionals and locals who participate in academic or professional training and volunteer activities.

Strategic alliances
Recognized researchers and academic and scientific organizations are particularly important for us; we have common interests and can establish solid collaborations with them.

Although a percentage of our initiatives are financed through PUCE, the majority of projects carried out at YRS receive technical or financial assistance from different national and international organizations or individuals.

Many of our projects depend on support and participation from government and non-government community stakeholders.
