The missions of TREUBIA are to: (1) promote sciences and disseminate information in animal systematics and on the biodiversity of the region; (2) participate in the effort of educating public through good quality of scientific media and available professional researchers; (3) establish linkages among zoologists particularly in the field of systematics.
