  3. 3. The diversity of the Biosphere provides us all withhealth, 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.

  96. 96. Achievements
  97. 97. An active role in saving 50 wolves from being declared legitimate hunting targets in theBieszczady 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.
  98. 98. Declaration of a national park in the Ukraine, protecting a unique steppe area jutting intothe 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 Europes biggest orchid field).
  99. 99. Data collected by our expeditions in the Caprivi have helped our local and international partners make arguments that have led to the declaration of the Kavango ZambeziTransfrontier Conservation Area, or KAZA TFCA. The KAZA TFCA is the worlds largest conservation area, spanning five southern African countries; Angola, Botswana,Namibia, Zambia and Zimbabwe, centred around the Caprivi-Chobe-Victoria Falls area.
  100. 100. 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.
  101. 101. Together with our partners in Peru, we were able to halt a dam construction project,which was threatening a biodiversity hotspot in our Madre de Dios study site region in the Peru Amazon region.
  102. 102. Fewer lions, leopards and cheetahs killed in farmer-predator conflict in Namibia.
  103. 103. Inclusion of guidelines for boat behaviour at clay licks in the Tambopata Reservemanagement plan. Guidelines are needed because unsustainable forms of farming, logging and tourism are threatening the natural habitat in Peruvian Amazon.
  104. 104. Our recommendations for the management and protection of jaguars have beenincorporated into national and state-wide jaguar action plans in Brazil’s Atlantic rainforest.
  105. 105. Our recommendations for the management and protection of the coral reefs of theCayos Cochinos marine protected area in Honduras have been incorporated into the managing authorities’ action plan.
  106. 106. Together with our partners in Spain, we helped to reverse EU high altitude carcassremoval regulation, which was designed to combat the spread of BSE, but was starving high mountain vultures and bears.
  107. 107. On many of our expedition we build capacity buy training local people as guides orconservationists, creating expedition placements & scholarships, etc. We also engagewith local communities in education, producing educational materials about the value of wildlife and how to protect it and local livelihoods.
