00048248 - Conservation and sustainable use of biological diversity in Russia’s Taymir Peninsula: Maintaining connectivity across the landscape
Russia’s Taimyr Peninsula is the northern-most part of mainland Eurasia and represents Asia’s largest continuous tundra landscape. The vast wetlands serve as the migratory endpoint for birds and are used by many rare and endangered species. The area is threatened by encroaching development and mismanagement and efforts are required for the conservation and sustainable use of it globally significant biodiversity across the tundra landscape that makes up the Central Taimyr Landscape Corridor (CTLC).
The project is aimed at the conservation and sustainable use of globally significant biodiversity across the tundra landscape of the Central Taymir Landscape Corridor (CTLC). The project proposes to engage stakeholders in devising innovative and adaptive practices to mitigate and prevent threats to biological diversity by applying new partnerships, conservation tools, information, and sustainable livelihoods to conserve biological diversity.
