Biosphere Expeditions 2011

  1. 1. Inspiring Conservation
  2. 2. The Biosphere Defined in 1929 by Russian scientist Vladimir Vernadsky as “ the part of the earth’s surface and atmosphere occupied by living things”
  3. 3. The diversity of the Biosphere provides us all with health, wealth, food, fuel and the vital services our lives depend on. Human activity is causing an erosion of this diversity at a greatly accelerated rate.
  4. 4. Humans are a part of the rich diversity of nature and have the power to protect the planet. Biosphere Expeditions offers one way in which people can.
  5. 5. Anyone can come with us and work with field scientists on important conservation activities in their normal holiday time… … putting time and money into conservation that wouldn’t otherwise be there.

  100. 101. Achievements
  101. 102. An active role in saving 50 wolves from being declared legitimate hunting targets in the Bieszczady mountains in Poland. This was achieved by providing accurate information on the predator numbers and by influencing the local authorities who reversed their decision to cull wolves.
  102. 103. Declaration of a national park in the Ukraine, protecting a unique steppe area jutting into the Black Sea and as such a stop-off point for many migratory birds, as well as a haven for fauna (e.g. birds & wolf) and flora (it boasts amongst other things Europe's biggest orchid field).
  103. 104. Declaration of a protected area in the Altai Republic, Central Asia, which provides the habitat for a number of endangered species including the snow leopard.
  104. 105. Fewer lions, leopards and cheetahs killed in farmer-predator conflict in Namibia.
  105. 106. Inclusion of guidelines for boat behaviour at clay licks in the Tambopata Reserve management plan. Guidelines are needed because unsustainable forms of farming, logging and tourism are threatening the natural habitat in Peruvian Amazon.
  106. 107. Our recommendations for the management and protection of jaguars have been incorporated into national and state-wide jaguar action plans in Brazil’s Atlantic rainforest.
  107. 108. Our recommendations for the management and protection of the coral reefs of the Cayos Cochinos marine protected area in Honduras have been incorporated into the managing authorities’ action plan.
  108. 109. Together with our partners in Spain, we helped to reverse EU high altitude carcass removal regulation, which was designed to combat the spread of BSE, but was starving high mountain vultures and bears.
  109. 110. On many of our expedition we build capacity buy training local people as guides or conservationists, creating expedition placements & scholarships, etc. We also engage with local communities in education, producing educational materials about the value of wildlife and how to protect it and local livelihoods.
  110. 111. Construction of three research bases creating local jobs and capacity. We have trained over 50 local staff and rangers and have involved local communities all over the world, creating livelihoods and non-destructive, sustainable jobs. Over 50 scientific reports and research papers disseminating information amongst the scientific community. More than 30 awards & accolades won. Hundreds of press articles, radio and TV programmes creating awareness locally and internationally. We have raised awareness for literally thousands of people and created lasting international friendships and partnerships. And more…
