Raising public awareness on rare fauna of Lugansk region and developing capacity for community monitoring
The main objective of the project is connected with the focal area “Biodiversity” and directed on biodiversity conservation and rehabilitation in Lugansk region by identifying key objects in accordance with EDGE-species criteria and development of measures for their preservation, particularly through community participation. The project is going to achieve its objective by implementation of the following activities: - outline highly rare species by summarizing evidence of the region in the fauna species with high conservation categories and limited distribution; - identify highly rare species through research, analysis of previously described locations and detailed mapping of such findings for different time sources and types of habitats, analysis of changes in the distribution of findings at the time and the formation of long-term monitoring schemes; - determine the actual list of high-risk existence of rare species in the region for risk classification developed by IUCN and identify the key factors that affect the status of their populations; - develop the list of the most effective measures for the protection of highly rare species and their habitats, promote the reproduction of their populations and mitigate anthropogenic environmental changes and direct impacts on the populations of such species through the development of proposals for biotechnical measures; - implement effective measures to increase public awareness and participation in the accumulation and dissemination of knowledge about the population of highly rare species and their protection needs, publication and dissemination of such data.
