    • "Școala altfel"
      [released on: 2012-04-09T00:00:00Z]
      <p><em><strong>Şcoala altfel</strong></em> poate &icirc;nsemna și o cunoaştere mai bună a naturii care ne &icirc;nconjoară. Aceasta a fost ideea organizării unor lecţii de ecologie pentru copiii din Moara Vlăsiei (județul Ilfov), &icirc;n săptăm&acirc;na 2-6 aprilie 2011, săptăm&acirc;na dedicată Programului Școala altfel.</p> <p>Specialişti din cadrul Ministerul Mediului şi Pădurilor, reprezentanţi ai custodelui sitului Natura 2000 ROSPA0044 - Grădiştea Căldarușani Dridu și profesori din cadrul Școlii nr.1 din Moara Vlăsiei, au organizat lecţii &icirc;n clasă şi afară, &icirc;n curtea școlii, pentru un grup de 15 copii interesaţi de conservarea naturii.</p> <p>&Icirc;ntruc&acirc;t, situl Natura 2000 Gradiștea Căldărușani Dridu este un sit de importanță comunitară pentru protecția speciilor rare de păsări sălbatice, principalele activităţi desfăşurate s-au referit la recunoaşterea speciilor de păsări, viaţa păsărilor, habitatele unde acestea trăiesc și ecosistemele din cadrul sitului.</p> <p>Au fost desfăşurate prezentări &icirc;n power point, sesiuni de &icirc;ntrebări şi răspunsuri, jocuri interactive, toate acestea contribuind la &icirc;mbunătăţirea cunoștințelor elevilor asupra valorii naturale ale sitului Natura 2000 Gradiștea Căldărușani Dridu şi rolul său &icirc;n dezvoltarea durabilă a zonei.</p> <p>Promotorii acestor acţiuni au &icirc;mpărtăşit experienţele avute &icirc;n cadrul unei vizite de studiu &icirc;n Germania, facilitate de programul Naturregio pentru Zone Umede, derulat de către Academia Alfred Tӧepfer pentru Protecţia Naturii (NNA). Unele dintre activităţile desfăşurate &icirc;n şcolile din Germania pentru educaţie ecologică au fost replicate prin acest eveniment şi &icirc;n şcoala din Moara Vlăsiei.</p> <p>Reacţia copiilor a fost foarte entuziastă, ei prezent&acirc;nd mici creaţii artistice, care au reflectat viziunea lor despre protejarea naturii care &icirc;i &icirc;nconjoară: desene, fotografii făcute chiar de copii după multe ore de supraveghere a speciilor de păsări din sit, origami reprezent&acirc;nd păsări, alte contribuţii artistice Impactul imediat şi pe termen lung al acestui tip de eveniment este reprezentat de o conştientizare mai profundă a copiilor privind importanţa conservării naturii.</p>

    • Protected areas
      [released on: 2007-05-10T00:00:00Z]
      <p>Protected sites in Belgium represent many different types of ecosystems: forests, wetlands, pastures, calcareous grasslands, heathlands, caves, marine areas, etc. Their sizes range from 0.3 to 72,000 hectares !<br /> <br /> The protection of natural areas in Belgium is carried out through various legislative instruments. Each of Belgium's three regions has its own system and categories of protection status.</p> <p>The table below gives an indication of the extent of protected areas in Belgium. An overall estimation is difficult to give, since different protection statuses have sometimes been attributed to the same site. For example, a nature reserve can also be included in the Natura 2000 network.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p><img src="http://www.biodiv.be/PhotoArchive/Protected_areas_BE_2007.gif/view" alt="" /></p> <p>[1] Of this total area being managed as a reserve, only 5 491 ha have a formal recognition by ministerial decision as nature reserve.<br /> [2] Of this total area, only 11277 ha have a formal recognition by ministerial decision as nature reserve.<br /> [3]The total surface of the Natura 2000 network in the terrestrial zone reaches 12.6 % of Belgium's territory. In marine waters, about 12% of the Belgian territorial sea and its exclusive economic zone are designated as Natura 2000.</p> <p>The data in the table is extracted from Belgium's Response to CBD notification 2006-080 on Protected Areas (2007).</p> <p>For more recent data on Natura 2000 area, please visit the <a href="http://www.biodiv.be/implementation/cross-cutting-issues/protected_areas/natura-2000-belgium" target="_new">Natura 2000 section</a> or consult the <a href="http://www.biodiv.be/implementation/cross-cutting-issues/protected_areas/protected-areas-the-natura-2000-network-in-belgium-extract-from-the-5th-national" target="_new">extract of the 5th National report to the Convention on Biological Diversity</a>.</p>
    • Thematic Report on Protected Areas (2003)
      [released on: 2006-02-14T15:14:53Z]
      <p>The <strong>Thematic Report on Protected Areas in Belgium</strong> has been elaborated as a response to <a href="http://www.biodiv.org/decisions/default.asp?dec=VI/25" target="_blank">Decision VI/25</a> of the Conference of the Parties to the Convention on Biological Diversity, and its related notifications <a href="http://www.biodiv.org/doc/notifications/2002/ntf-2002-046-natrep.asp" target="_blank">2002-046</a> and <a href="http://www.biodiv.org/doc/notifications/2003/ntf-2003-008-nr-en.pdf" target="_blank">2003-008</a>.</p> <p>The format of the thematic report on protected areas (or areas where special measures need to be taken to conserve biological diversity) is a series of questions designed to facilitate the consideration of the issue of protected areas at the seventh meeting of the Conference of the Parties (COP-7, Malaysia, February 2004). The responses to these questions will also help to assess the overall status of implementation of the Convention.</p> <p>The report has been elaborated following <a href="http://www.biodiv.org/doc/guidelines/nr-pa-gd-lns-en.pdf" target="_blank">guidelines</a> provided by the Executive Secretary of the Convention on Biological Diversity.&nbsp;It has been completed in July 2003.</p>
