• 大连庄河黑脸琵鹭繁殖栖息地及鸟类保护

    Read in English 由EAAFP秘书处收集整理 作为灭绝风险最高的鸟类之一,黑脸琵鹭已在1989年被国际自然保护联盟(IUCN)收录至濒危物种红皮书——《亚洲鸟类红皮书》名录中。上世纪90年代,当人类开始关注它们的时候,它们已经只剩下几百只了。1998年,在大连庄河石城乡形人坨(岛)首次发现黑脸琵鹭繁殖地,随后,庄河市王家镇元宝岛被发现是黑脸琵鹭繁殖地。然而,国内外人士从四面八方慕名而来观赏和旅游,近距离影响黑脸琵鹭繁殖栖息;部分游客及公众对黑脸琵鹭的认识和了解不够,保护意识不高。为解决上述问题,在联合国开发计划署(UNDP)、全球环境基金小额赠款计划(GEF-SGP)的支持下,由大连市环保志愿者协会实施的“大连庄河黑脸琵鹭繁殖栖息地及鸟类保护”项目旨在通过采取物理隔离、控制上岛人数,规范观鸟行为和宣传教育等活动,加强对黑脸琵鹭繁殖栖息地的保护。项目于2013年10月至2015年8月期间开展实施。 项目地点:大连市庄河市王家镇元宝岛位于黄海北部。这里是我国唯一被确认的黑脸琵鹭的繁殖栖息地。黑脸琵鹭是我国仅次于朱鹮的第二种最濒危的鸟类,1989年国际自然资源物种保护联盟(IUCN)和国际鸟类保护委员会(ICBP)都将其列入濒危物种红皮书中。中国濒危动物红皮书等级:濒危,生效年代:1996年。该项目意在唤醒公众意识,保护岛上的黑脸琵鹭和其他鸟类。 存在的问题: 1. 旅游观鸟行为严重干扰了黑脸琵鹭的栖息环境,特别是在繁育季节; 2. 由于岛屿小,黑脸琵鹭栖息地周围的陆地和植被有限; 3. 每年都有包括黑脸琵鹭在内的本地或迁徙鸟类受伤,得不到及时救助就会造成死亡; 4. 当地渔民、村民及游客对黑脸琵鹭不够了解,需要进行宣传和教育。 解决方案/计划的活动: 1. 项目组和社区参与人员进行现场研讨和培训; 2. 在非繁殖期间控制上岛人数及规范观鸟游客和上岛人的行为; 3. 在元宝岛海面上增加建立限制船只载人接近牛心坨的漂浮隔离带1000米; 4. 建立一个救助康复站,对受伤的黑脸琵鹭等鸟类及时实施救助; 5. 对觅食区进行保护和宣传教育,提高周围渔民村民及游客对黑脸琵鹭的认识和保护意识。 项目成果及直接的项目产出: 1. 0.95平方公里黑脸琵鹭栖息地得到保护; 2. 黑脸琵鹭30只左右、若干黄嘴白鹭和数量较多的黒尾鸥得到保护; 3. 受伤鸟类得到100%救助; 4. 2000人对黑脸琵鹭重要性的认识和保护方法及意识有提高。 在项目结束后,项目组发布了以《黑脸琵鹭及其在中国的繁殖地》为题的项目总结宣传册,阐述了项目要解决的问题及对策、项目实施的工作与成果和项目特色等具体信息。点击查看详情 part 1 | part 2
