  • Protected Areas in Uzbekistan - Model Regions for Sustainable Development - Michael-Succow-Foundation
    the Michael Succow Foundation s work in Uzbekistan was the mid range transfer of existing strictly protected nature reserves so called Zapovedniki into international protection categories through the creation of buffer zones and a management concept that includes the needs of the local population This concept included the development of eco tourism the creation of new sources of income for the local population the integration of the populace in the environmental efforts and networking with political and scientific agents We worked together with UNDP GEF and the Government of Uzbekistan project Strengthening Sustainability of the National Protected Area System by Focusing on Strictly Protected Areas Three nature reserves were identified as potential development areas The Ecocentre Jeiran is located near the town of Bukhara along the old Silk Road Only recently the reserve was expanded by four times its original size to a total area of 200 square kilometres The reserve is home to large herds of Goitered Gazelles locally known as Jeyran as well as populations of the strongly decimated now re introduced Kulan and Przewalski s Horse the latter extinct in the wild Besides serving as a breeding ground for endangered species such as Houbara Bustard Ferruginous Duck and Marbled Teal the reserve is also an important stop over for migratory species including Dalmatian Pelican White headed Duck Cinereous Vulture Imperial Eagle Little Bustard Corn Crake and Great Snipe The Hissar Zapovednik with a total area of 812 square kilometres contains vast untouched high alpine habitats that are a refuge for rare species such as the Isabelline Brown Bear the Eurasian Lynx and the Snow Leopard whose largest population in Uzbekistan occurs here The area has breeding Cinereous Vultures and Saker Falcons while Lesser Kestrels occur in migration On 250 square kilometres the Surkhan Zapovednik located on the

  • Kaliningrad – Feasibility Study for a Protected Area in the Memel Delta - Michael-Succow-Foundation
    German Federal Foundation for the Environment Deutsche Bundesstiftung Umwelt DBU that will examine the potential for developing and implementing a cross boundary nature reserve in the Memel delta Like the Rominter Heath the Memel delta located at the Curonian Lagoon in the border region between Lithuania and the Kaliningrad area bears witness to the turbulent history of the recent decades Known during the German reign as an extensive refuge for European elk elk valley elk forest it served for many years primarily as an object of hunters desires Even in those days efforts began to cultivate the flood plains of the Memel and the Curonian Lagoon through dike construction and the establishment of an extensive drainage system These systems were further developed during the Soviet era In addition heavy peat extraction from the region s extensive ombrotrophic peatlands began shortly after World War II After 1990 the region s development on the Russian versus the Lithuanian side continued on vastly different tracks While the Lithuanian part saw the further development of agricultural use and a certain degree of tourism and village renewal the Russian part was mainly characterized by the abolishment of land use and rural exodus The flip side of this development is the fact that peat extraction a non sustainable form of land use continues unabated on the Lithuanian side while it has come to an almost complete stop in the Kaliningrad region Similar to the Rominter Heath the Lithuanian portion of the area already has a conservation regime in place Since 1997 it boasts the Nemunas Delta Regional Park As yet there is no reserve on the Russian side However two important peatland areas have recently entered into the process of receiving protected status The Michael Succow Foundation s efforts in the Memel delta are geared toward
