Rewilding- Projekte



cajun:   Ein Projekt im Rahmen des Rewilding, das auch vom Dierenrijk unterstĂĽtzt wird:
"Green Balkans erhöht die Population europäischer Geier in Bulgarien
Gänsegeier Zivka, geschlüpft im Dierenrijk, fliegt jetzt seit zwei Monaten in Bulgarien umher. Sie wird genau überwacht von Green Balkans, der Organisation, die sie in dieses Land eingeführt hat, genau wie ihr Bruder Stanislav ein Jahr zuvor. Green Balkans ist eine der ersten öffentlichen Organisationen, die sich dem Schutz von Lebensräumen und seltenen Arten in Bulgarien verschrieben hat. Die Organisation wurde 1988 von einer Gruppe Studenten gegründet. In den letzten Jahren wurde Green Balkans von nationalen und internationalen Institutionen und Behörden anerkannt. Sie gilt als vollwertiger Kooperationspartner, in dem Hunderte von Ehrenamtlichen und Experten tätig sind. Dank dieser Freiwilligen und Experten konnte Green Balkans in den letzten Jahren einen positiven Beitrag zum Naturschutz in Bulgarien leisten.
Geierpopulation verbessern
Eines der Projekte ist die Verbesserung der Populationen europäischer Geier in Bulgarien. Green Balkans tut dies zunächst, indem es sich auf die Wiederansiedlung des Gänsegeiers konzentriert. Dierenrijk trug dazu bei, indem der Zoo zwei Gänsegeier, Zivka und Stanislav, in Bulgarien auswilderte. Das oberste Ziel dieser Organisation ist es, neben den Gänsegeiern auch gesunde Populationen von Mönchsgeiern und Bartgeiern in die Natur zurückzubringen. Für Gänsegeier und Mönchsgeier laufen inzwischen auch verschiedene Projekte. Da Bartgeier andere Geier brauchen, um Kadaver zu öffnen, ist es für diese Art wichtig, dass die anderen beiden Populationen zuerst ausreichend zurückgekehrt sind. Diese Art wird daher zu einem späteren Zeitpunkt wieder eingeführt."

cajun:   Ich eröffne einen neuen Thread zu einem Thema, das immer mehr publik wird und national, wie international von Bedeutung ist. Zoos sind, in meinen Augen, bisher viel zu selten involviert in sog. Rewilding Programme. Der Begriff beschreibt die Wiederherstellung von Lebensgemeinschaften und Ă–kosystemen, zum Ziele der Erhalts von Artenvielfalt und ökologischen Beziehungen. Neben Apex Prädatoren spielen auch groĂźe Huftiere/ Weidetiere eine besondere gestaltende Rolle in Ă–kosystemen. Bezeichnend das Indien, nach der Einfuhr von Geparden aus Namibia ins eigne Land, nun ĂĽberlegt Gaure nach Sri Lanka zu "spenden", die dort im 17. Jahrhundert verschwunden sind. Diese Tiere sind allerdings dann zoogezĂĽchtet. Da könnte unser EEP fĂĽr den Gaur mal aufspringen, statt die europäischen Tiere, die ggf noch wertvolle Gene aus Populationen enthalten, die es nicht mehr gibt, aussterben zu lassen. Artikel einkopiert in englisch- schafft ihr :-)

"India considering to send six bison to Sri Lanka that were extinct in the island since the 17th century
Close on the heels of the project that translocated cheetahs from Namibia, the Indian government is considering a proposal from Colombo to export a number of gaurs, or Indian bisons, to Sri Lanka to revive the population of gavaras that have been extinct in the island since the end of the 17th century.

If the project is cleared, it would be the first such agreement between India and Sri Lanka, and part of a global trend of “wildlife or zoological diplomacy”, say experts.

Sources said the Ministry of External Affairs (MEA), which received the request in August, has now forwarded it to the Ministry of Environment and Forests (MoEF), “seeking comments” on the proposal to transport at least six specimens, including a bull and three to five cows. According to the written proposal, the Sri Lankan Department of Zoological Gardens would then carry out “captive breeding a herd of about a dozen specimens over a five-year period before trial reintroduction to the wild could take place in accordance with [internationally mandated] guidelines for reintroductions”.

S.P. Yadav, Director, National Tiger Conservation Authority, said the proposal was being studied. “We’ll have to evaluate if the conditions for translocation are right, such that the animal can sustainably thrive over there,” he told The Hindu, estimating the evaluation could take a few months.

The suggestion for the proposal came from world-renowned Sri Lankan conservationist Rohan Pethiyagoda, who was awarded the Linnean medal 2022 (U.K. -based equivalent of the Nobel prize for zoology) for his work on restoring fresh water and forest biodiversity.

As a scientific and cultural collaboration between our two countries, I felt this could be an immensely valuable initiative. But I know it is fraught with difficulties,” said Sri Lankan High Commissioner to India Milinda Moragoda who handed over the preliminary request on the basis of Mr. Pethiyagoda’s suggestion. “India is without a doubt Sri Lanka’s closest friend, supporter and trading partner. We have a shared history, shared cultural identity, and shared gene. We even got Buddhism, on whose traditions we derive our national values, from India,” he added.

Experts say that while “zoological diplomacy” had been practised worldwide, they draw a distinction between “gifts or loans” of animals in captivity to translocation and reintroduction of a species, particularly between neighbouring countries with similar eco-systems.

For example, American bison herds were supplemented with animals from Canada after the U.S. herds were almost all wiped out, The U.K. has recently introduced the European bison (Wisent) after an estimated 10,000 years in June 2022(its extinct relative the Steppe Bison was believed to have lived there many centuries ago).

Israel has for decades pursued reintroductions, including of Persian fallow deer. Arabian oryx and other species have been released into the Negev desert, and South Africa has recently used the export of cheetahs to other African countries as a diplomatic tool during the post-apartheid era. More recently, Cambodia has requested translocating tigers from India, which is under consideration.

“Much depends on whether the conditions that caused the extinction have been removed, but reintroduction is known and has frequently been taken up between countries where the range is contiguous,” explained Mahesh Rangaran, Professor of History and Environmental Studies at Ashoka University who has studied conservation history, including such attempts. “In that sense, the animal plays a role as a zoological ambassador between nation states,” he added.

Sri Lankan officials say the gaur, called the gavara in Sinhala, was once widespread and archaeological remains in ancient caves in the island included the remains of the animal. By the end of the 17th century, however, the species appears to have been extirpated in Sri Lanka, although they remain prominent in iconography and mythological stories.

The Indian gaur, a reclusive beast that lives in the wild, is the largest wild bovine that is a protected species and included in Schedule I of the Wild Life Protection Act, 1972 and listed as vulnerable in the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) Red List. There are about 13,000 to 30,000 gaurs in the world with approximately 85% of the population present in India. It is also found in Burma and Thailand.

The first-ever population estimation exercise of the Indian gaur carried out in the Nilgiris Forest Division in February 2020 estimated around 2,000 Indian gaurs to be inhabiting the division. This came after instances of people being attacked or injured by the bison primarily in and around plantations came to light. In 2019, for which the most recent numbers are available, three people were killed and seven injured in attacks by gaurs."
