The Waterbird Population Estimates (WPE) online database provides current and historic estimates, trends and 1% thresholds for over 800 waterbird species and 2300 biogeographic populations worldwide. This project has been developed by Wetlands International with the support of Environment Canada and the Ramsar Convention on Wetlands. Visit the Waterbird Population Estimates Database
The goal of this project is to develop the foundations for integrating wetland biodiversity conservation into water related sectoral policies in Ukraine based on ecological network development and civil society engagement in a pilot project in the South Bug River Basin.
This project aims to enhance the conservation and sustainable development of the Black Sea coastal wetlands. It will establish the foundations for a regional wetlands initiative that will underpin future wetland conservation efforts.
Increased awareness on ecological networks and biodiversity conservation among governmental bodies, NGOs, schools is contributing towards the establishment of the Dnipro eco-corridor.
The development of the ecological network in Ukraine has been enhanced by focusing on the Southern Boug meridional river corridor. A map on GIS basis and a poster has been prepared.
Project was financed by the Royal Netherlands Embassy in the Ukraine.
