Omul, inel important in lantul trofic


Referitor la stirea publicata de radio france internationale in data de 28.11.2011 cu privire la reintroducerea activitatii de vanatoare in Delta Dunarii. Oricum am asculta declaratia domnului Vasile Gherasim, presedintele Comisiei de Administratie si Echilibru Ecologic din Camera Deputatilor nu putem sa nu ne dam seama de redactarea in stire modificata pe gustul prezentatorului pentru a prinde mai mult la audienta si pentru a nota in titlu deja, senzationalul. In declaratia domnului Gherasim se vorbeste de mistreti, de fazani, de ciori grive insa pentru reporter senzationalul a fost repede bine identificat. Sacalul sufera din nou un atac mediatic neplacut ca si altele precedente precum „ELODIA de la ASE”, mancata de sacali! unde seful criminalistilor pe tara , Marius Iacob, declara ca si o a treia ipoteza ”s-ar putea lua în calcul cazul în care femeia s-a dus acolo, pe câmp (n.r. - i s-a făcut rău, a îngheţat etc) şi, pur şi simplu, au mâncat-o câinii, şacalii sau ce animale or fi fost, iar, ulterior, altcineva să fi trecut prin zonă şi să fi luat geanta”. De aici si pana la titlul rasfatat e mult si putem vedea superficialitatea redactorului si in acest caz.

Pentru vanatoarea in delta nu avem nici o pozitie pana nu putem duce la bun sfarsit proiectul nostru "RoJack Crispus 2012-2015" de studiu al ecologiei populatiilor de sacal auriu. Pana atunci lasam omul in cadrul ecosistemului dupa cum bine spunea renumitul Ramon Margalef, pionierul si parintele ecologiei in Spania si referent de seama pentru ecologia moderna. Mai bine spus sacalul poate fi considerat un nivel trofic superior competitor cu alt nivel trofic superior reprezentat de om. In delta pelicanul este un simbol pentru oamenii de pretudindeni, un dusman al pescarului, in Ucraina se impusca imediat ce pescarul il vede la setca sau la vintir, apoi ouale de pelican pot fi dieta buna pentru sacal, sa deducem ca un cetatean pescar din delta ar fi bun prieten cu sacalul, si atunci de ce sa il impuste? Titlul Cu şacalul "în curte" şi puşca la ochi. Liber la vânat în Delta Dunării? ar avea atunci multe necunoscute pentru o ecuatie in care oamenii insisi sunt competitori.

ANUBIS 2011, autumn monitoring stage of the golden jackal species in Romania



On 22th of October 2011 will start the 4th action from the preliminaries for the "Biodiversity and human activities in relation with golden jackal" RoJack BIOTUR project. To follow the evolution of the jackal specific systems and to study the interspecific relationships and population ecology during 2011-2015 period in natural areas from Romania are the main objectives of this project.
Green Guard Environmental Control Corp of Youth NGO Crispus Sibiu purposed the strategy and organized the entire period of the initial studies, since 2002. During Anubis 2011 Autumn Stage, Green Guard Sibiu will transfer and present the project to the Association for Sustainable Management of Wildlife BIOTUR which will mannage the new project in collaboration with the National Service of Hunting and Aquaculture from Romanian Forest Department ROMSILVA.

ANUBIS 2011 will start in Timis county with specific activities of monitoring and will continue in Giurgiu county with activities in the calling stations set in the previous stages.

On day 26th will take place

WANAX 2011, summer monitoring for the golden jackal species in Romania




Between the 13th and the 18th of August 2011, the third monitoring session for the golden jackal species organized by the Green Guard Environmental Control Corp of the Youth NGO Crispus Sibiu in collaboration with specialists from the National Hunting and Aquaculture Service of the Romanian Forest Department Romsilva, from the Natural History Museum Gr. Antipa from Bucharest and from the Danube Delta Biosphere Reserve Administration, will take place in Romania, in the same areas where the NGO identified the presence of the golden jackal species during the previous actions, Orizont 2010 (autumn) and Azimut 2011 (winter).

Video AZIMUT 2011, specialized monitoring of the golden jackal species in Romania

The video of Azimut has 3 parts. The first is OK, but second is restricted in Germany due to the music of "Oreja de Van Gogh" set as background.

Azimut 2011, winter survey for the golden jackal populations, international stage in Romania


ENGLISH


Specialized monitoring for the golden jackal species will take place in natural areas from southern Romania and the Danube Delta Biosphere Reserve between 9th-16th February 2011.

The organizers are Green Guard Environmental Control Corp of the Youth NGO Crispus Sibiu, National Hunting and Aquaculture Service of the RNP Romsilva and the National Museum of Natural History "Grigore Antipa" of Bucharest.

Specialists from the Danube Delta Biosphere Reserve Administration were invited to participate in activities that will take place in the Danube Delta.

This Winter Stage, entitled "Azimut 2011", following pilot action in June 2010 and preliminary study in October 2010. Azimut 2011 is divided in three phases, depending on the study area.

The main objectives are to improve working technique, determining the variability inside and between clusters and to elaborate the strategy for the project "Structure and dynamics of golden jackal populations in natural areas in southern Romania and the Danube Delta in the period 2010-2015" project to submit for a possible financing.

In this action, participate directly Mr Ing Petre Gargarea, head of the National Service of Hunting and Aquaculture RNP ROMSILVA, organizer and coordinator of specific actions to monitor the golden jackal, in habitats where this mammal was reported, Dr Biol Dumitru Murariu, general director of the National Museum of Natural History "Grigore Antipa" in Bucharest, scientific reviewer in terms of biology and senior advisor for Golden Jackal actions so far.

In the first phase, which takes place near the Cheveresu Mare village in Timis county, will participate the biologists Dusko Cirovic from Serbia and Laszlo Szabo from Hungary.

At the second phase, which will take place in natural areas from Giurgiu and Calarasi counties, participate Laszlo Szabo and environmental biologist Giorgos Giannatos from Greece.

Third phase will take place in natural areas near Gura Dobrogei village from Constanta county and the marine Delta levees.

In Azimut 2011 action will participate Daniel Perez Vazquez, forestry Engineer and naturalist Juan Matute, both from Spain.


Consultants for scientific and technical support are Prof Dr Biol Boris Krystufek and Biol Miha Krofel from Slovenia, Biol Luca Lapini from Italy and Dr Biol Frank Zachos from Germany.
