Overcoming barriers – management of large carnivores in the Alps

27-06-2018

After centuries of intensive hunting large carnivores like brown bears, Eurasian lynx and wolves are now recovering in many areas of Europe. This work deals with large carnivore populations in the French Alps focusing on wolf and gives information on the recent population status, management, legal frameworks and recommendations for habitat protection and coexistence of humans and large carnivores. The occurrence of wolves in France is limited to the Western Central Alps. In 2017 52 packs (360 individuals ...

After centuries of intensive hunting large carnivores like brown bears, Eurasian lynx and wolves are now recovering in many areas of Europe. This work deals with large carnivore populations in the French Alps focusing on wolf and gives information on the recent population status, management, legal frameworks and recommendations for habitat protection and coexistence of humans and large carnivores. The occurrence of wolves in France is limited to the Western Central Alps. In 2017 52 packs (360 individuals) were monitored. The Western Alpine population is of Italian origin, and migration moving from the Apennines to the Alpine population is still underway. Wolf populations are still far from being accepted by local farmers and livestock breeders, and conflicts with hunters are also reported. A French wolf plan exists. The actions listed in the wolf plan are based on livestock protection and compensations. The principles of “tir de défense” (removal of stock raiding individuals) and “tir de prélèvement” (a yearly defined number of individuals are removed) are applied. The goal is to reduce predation and keep or increase wolf populations and maintain them at favourable conservation status. Lynx is present in France in the Jura, the Vosges-Palatinian region and in the Alps. The alpine population originates from the Carpathians, where the nearest autochthonous population can be found. In 2016 100 individuals lived in France, and a small population of around 30 individuals has settled in the North of the French Alps (Savoie). For the lynx no management plan exists. In France the occurrence of bears is limited to the Pyrenees with an estimated population of 19 bears. There is no Alpine bear population in France. For the management of the brown bear a French bear plan exists. Bears, wolves and lynx are strictly protected by international and national laws, but for their practical management, almost all countries with substantial populations of these carnivores have some regulations allowing for the targeted removal of problem animals. For large carnivores interregional wildlife habitat planning on the European level is important. It would clearly be desirable to have more transnational cooperation to develop more flexible management practices beyond national borders. The Habitat Directive with its focus on the favourable conservation status (FCS), combined with the Bonn and the Bern conventions, provides a good basis to achieve this.

Large Carnivore Management Plans of Protection: Best Practices in EU Member States

15-02-2018

This study was commissioned by the European Parliament’s Policy Department for Citizens’ Rights and Constitutional Affairs at the request of the PETI Committee. This paper analyses the legal framework on large carnivores – brown bear (Ursus arctos), Eurasian lynx (Lynx lynx), wolf (Canis lupus), wolverine (Gulo gulo) - and their current management within the EU are presented. Additionally, the best coexistence methods obtained from research and EU-funded projects are compiled. A thorough analysis ...

Additionally, the best coexistence methods obtained from research and EU-funded projects are compiled. A thorough analysis of the conditions for derogations under the Habitats Directive is followed by the implications of the current management. A general review and recommendations are made.

Fisheries in areas beyond national jurisdiction

07-04-2016

In June 2015, a UN resolution launched the development of a legally binding international instrument expected to break new ground in the conservation and sustainable use of marine biodiversity of areas beyond national jurisdiction. Fisheries aspects to be considered in this future agreement are discussed in a European Parliament report.

Plant health legislation: Protective measures against plant pests

22-03-2016

Following an evaluation of the European Union's plant health regime, on 6 May 2013 the European Commission proposed a new regulation on protective measures against plant pests. These include regulating pests on the basis of established criteria for risk assessment and prioritising those pests with the most serious consequences. More focus is being placed on high-risk trade coming from third countries. The proposal provides for better surveillance and the early eradication of outbreaks of new pests ...

Following an evaluation of the European Union's plant health regime, on 6 May 2013 the European Commission proposed a new regulation on protective measures against plant pests. These include regulating pests on the basis of established criteria for risk assessment and prioritising those pests with the most serious consequences. More focus is being placed on high-risk trade coming from third countries. The proposal provides for better surveillance and the early eradication of outbreaks of new pests. On 15 April 2014, the outgoing European Parliament adopted its first-reading position. Seven trilogue meetings were held which concluded on 16 December 2015, when the representatives of the Council and Parliament finalised an overall compromise text. Once the Council adopts its first reading position, the text could then be adopted by the Parliament without amendment in an early second reading. A more recent edition of this document is available.

Wildlife Crime

15-03-2016

This study gives an overview of the state of wildlife crime in Europe based on available documents, EU-Twix data and empirical research including interviews. The study identifies main routes and species linked to illegal wildlife trade, as well as enforcement deficits. It also develops policy recommendations in view of the upcoming EU Action Plan.

Schutz der biologischen Vielfalt: EU-Politik und internationale Abkommen

01-04-2015

Die Biodiversität – die Vielfalt des Lebens auf der Erde – nimmt ab, was hauptsächlich auf vom Menschen verursachte Belastungen wie etwa die übermäßige Ausbeutung der natürlichen Ressourcen, den Verlust von Lebensräumen, Verschmutzung, Klimawandel und invasive gebietsfremde Arten zurückzuführen ist. Die Basis der Biodiversitätspolitik der EU bilden die Vogelschutzrichtlinie und die FFH-Richtlinie.

Die Biodiversität – die Vielfalt des Lebens auf der Erde – nimmt ab, was hauptsächlich auf vom Menschen verursachte Belastungen wie etwa die übermäßige Ausbeutung der natürlichen Ressourcen, den Verlust von Lebensräumen, Verschmutzung, Klimawandel und invasive gebietsfremde Arten zurückzuführen ist. Die Basis der Biodiversitätspolitik der EU bilden die Vogelschutzrichtlinie und die FFH-Richtlinie. Auf ihrer Grundlage wurde das Europäische Netz geschützter Lebensräume Natura 2000 errichtet, das mittlerweile 1 Million Quadratkilometer Landfläche (18 % der Landfläche der EU) und 250 000 Quadratkilometer Meeresfläche umfasst. Die Politik orientiert sich an der Biodiversitätsstrategie, die ehrgeizige Ziele für 2020 (Eindämmung des Biodiversitätsverlusts) und 2050 (Erhaltung und Wertschätzung der Biodiversität und der Ökosystemdienstleistungen) vorgibt, sowie an der Strategie für Grüne Infrastruktur. Schätzungen der Kommission zufolge bringt das Natura 2000-Netz einen Nutzen von 200 bis 300 Mrd. EUR pro Jahr, während die Verwaltungskosten auf 5,8 Milliarden EUR pro Jahr geschätzt werden. Mit dem LIFE-Programm werden einige Maßnahmen im Bereich der Biodiversität kofinanziert, was insbesondere für Natura 2000 gilt. Mittel zum Erhalt der Biodiversität werden zudem im Rahmen der Landwirtschafts-, der Regional-, der Fischerei- und der Forschungspolitik bereitgestellt. Das Europäische Parlament unterstützt die Politik der EU zum Erhalt der biologischen Vielfalt schon seit langem. Zu den Entwicklungen in der Biodiversitätspolitik der EU gehören die Überprüfung des EU-Haushalts auf die Vereinbarkeit mit dem Schutz der biologischen Vielfalt, eine verbesserte Überwachung, die Festlegung von Prioritäten für die Wiederherstellung geschädigter Ökosysteme, Ausgleichsmaßnahmen, mit denen unvermeidbare Restauswirkungen durch Maßnahmen zugunsten der Biodiversität kompensiert werden, sowie eine „Eignungsprüfung“ der EU-Naturschutzvorschriften.
