    This guide was presents an overview of the outcomes of the project “Mitigating interactions between endangered marine species and fishing activities”, covering the period from 2015 to 2018. The project was launched to improve efforts to conserve endangered marine species listed in Annex II of the Protocol concerning Specially Protected Areas and Biological Diversity in the Mediterranean (SPA/BD Protocol), by promoting responsible fishing practices in selected fisheries in the western and central Mediterranean. It was coordinated by the Secretariats of the Agreement on the Conservation of Cetaceans of the Black Sea, Mediterranean Sea and contiguous Atlantic area (ACCOBAMS) and the General Fisheries Commission for the Mediterranean (GFCM), in collaboration with the Regional Activity Centre for Specially Protected Areas (UNEP/MAP-SPA/RAC). The project had two objectives: 1) to learn more about how endangered marine species were being affected by fishing activities, and how fishers were being affected by incidental catches and depredation; and 2) to promote the introduction of fishing-tourism and opportunistic whale watching, as a way of generating additional income for fishers, reducing the fishing pressure on targeted fish stocks and, potentially, decreasing their negative interactions with endangered species. In this context, the project implemented eight pilot actions in selected fisheries to serve as practical case studies creating a base of preliminary information as a starting point, developed capacity-building and ecotourism initiatives and published outreach materials.

    El proyecto “Incorporación de la conservación y valoración de especies y ecosistemas críticamente amenazados en paisajes productivos de frontera de desarrollo en las regiones de Arica y Parinacota y del Biobío” ejecutado entre 2016 y 2022, tenía como objetivo ambiental incorporar criterios de conservación de cuatro especies críticamente amenazadas en la gestión de los principales territorios de “frontera de desarrollo” en las regiones de Arica y Parinacota y del Biobío. Los resultados de la evaluación resaltan una alta relevancia del proyecto con el Gobierno Chileno al alinearse con las prioridades nacionales en materia ambiental. Además del impulso a la elaboración de instrumentos de política pública orientados al conocimiento y protección del picaflor de Arica, del zorro de Darwin, del huemul y del queule (estrategias, planes y ordenanzas, protocolos de monitoreo y materiales educativos), el proyecto realizó un importante esfuerzo en la formación y sensibilización sobre la importancia de la biodiversidad tanto de funcionarios como de agricultores y población escolar. Destacan también los esfuerzos realizados en el nivel de la aplicación de buenas prácticas agrosilvopastoriles a nivel de los predios identificados.

    The ruil (Nothofagus alessandrii Espinosa) forest is one of the most endangered forest ecosystems in central Chile whose regeneration is critically threatened. In this study, we sampled 36 plots (625 m2 each) in the distribution range of N. alessandrii and quantified regeneration of the species from seed after a catastrophic large-scale fire event occurred in 2017. By means of logistic regression and contingency tables, we related ruil’s seedling regeneration with vegetative cover, number of ruil individuals, richness of native species, density of Pinus radiata D. Don seedlings, and fire severity. Results indicate that fire severity was the most important variable explaining the probability of regeneration of N. alessandrii. Seedling recruitment was high in sites with low fire severity, but the opposite was true for sites severely burned by fire. Our results suggests that after a severe fire the restoration efforts of N. alessandrii should be concentrated on reforestation activities, but in low burned areas, efforts must be focused on the management and protection of the new recruits.
