Implementation of the Action Plan for the Conservation of West African Manatees in Guinea-Bissau

The poster will show first project results concerning the actions of CBD-Habitat supported by OceanCare to improve the implementation of the Action Plan for the Western African Manatee on the field in Guinea-Bissau. The support of the Manatee action plan was developed mainly by performing a valorisation of its status in Orango National Park (Guinea-Bissau) as well as by the identification of the impact that fisheries causes to the population, and the identification of critical habitats of the species in order that their protection can be improved by national authorities.

Conserving biodiversity across 1/9 OF THE EARTH

WWF-Russia together with more than 300 specialists carried out a gap-analysis of the existing federal PAs system of the Russian Federation. This analysis is the first of its kind for Russia, in which a unified scientific and methodological approach was used, taking into account all available sources of information on biological diversity and protected areas of Russia. Special attention is paid to the role of the network of federal protected areas in longterm conservation of rare and valuable species.

Ecological Features of Orithyia sinica in Ganghwa Tidal Flat

Family Orithyiidae Dana, 1852 is a monotypic family and includes the single species, Orithyia sinica (Linnaeus, 1771) which called the tiger crab or tiger face crab. Its larvae, for instance, are unlike those of any other crab. It is found that Orithyia sinica only inhabit the Yellow Sea and Ganghwa tidal flat in West Sea of Korea is the main habitat of Orithyia sinica in the world.

Conservation and Sustainable Use of Ganghwa Tidal Flat

Conservation Campus, "Conservation and Sustainable Use of Ganghwa tidal flat" aims to educate participants how to balance conservation and use of Ganghwa tidal flat, which has rich biodiversity and various tourism resources. The target of this training course will be protected areas managers, NGOs and many stakeholders.

Understanding and Implementing the IUCN Protected Area Management Categories

Most national and regional protected area strategies include a protected area network as a fundamental component. IUCN WCPA´s definition and categorisation of protected area types allows policy makers and international organisations to quantify and understand this global network of protected areas; and the CBD´s Programme of Work on Protected Areas encourages the use of IUCN´s harmonised system for reporting protected areas.

Biodiversity Principles for Siting and Design of Hotels and Resorts in the Caribbean

To respond to the concerns expressed on many occasions by Caribbean IUCN Members and stakeholders about the impacts of hotels and resorts on biodiversity in the insular Caribbean, IUCN developed a set of Biodiversity Principles for Siting and Design of Hotels and Resorts. The Principles are targeted at all relevant stakeholders, including planning authorities, tourism development agencies, developers, investors, hotel managers and management companies, project managers and consultants, architects and construction firms.

Marine algal flora at Marine National Park of KOREA

This study elucidated flora list of marine algae at Marine National Park of Korea. As a result, a total number of 190 algal species – 29 greens, 54 browns, 107 reds – was identified. The most species (141) were found at Hallyeohaesang National Park, while the fowest (80) were found at Dadohaehaesang National Park.

The pattern and occurrence of marine benthic harpacticoid copepods depending on habitats

The small animal group, marine benthic harpacticoid copepods are one of the most dominat taxon in meiofauna. However the taxon is still poorly known to world, there are many possibilities to discover new taxa. We want to introduce the animal and its importance, and to present biodiversity depending on various habitats.

Is Bigger Better? Inviting Experiences and Perspectives on Large-Scale Marine Protection

The past two decades have seen both an increase in the area of the world´s ocean under protection and a trend toward the establishment of large-scale marine protected areas (MPAs). Recent calls from the international marine conservation community recommend a target of protecting at least 10% of all of the world´s marine and coastal ecoregions by 2020. The international community also notes that with only approximately 1% of the world´s oceans currently protected, large-scale MPAs will play a critical role to achieve this target.

Uniting for action in the Western Indian Ocean: climate resilience, food security and biodiversity conservation

The Western Indian Ocean (WIO) region has a rich diversity of marine and coastal ecosystems, from a distinct evolutionary history over 100 million years old. The region has a geographic and marine identity encircled by the east coast of Africa and the mid-ocean banks ringing the southwest Indian Ocean islands and by marine currents south of the equator. The coastal and marine ecosystems of the WIO provide food and income for over 60 million people as well as other goods and services of strategic importance to national economies.
