There were no relevant facts in September.
A workshop was held on participatory planning, a step outlined in the normative instruction (IN 25), which establishes, among others, the procedures for creating and monitoring the implementation of the National Action Plans for the Conservation of Endangered Species, within the framework of the The Chico Mendes Institute for Biodiversity Conversation (ICMBio). This workshop was moderated by Bicho do Mato, a company contracted by the Renova Foundation, and was attended by the main interested parties, such as researchers that have experience with the Doce River, representatives of federal and state public agencies (IBAMA, ICMBio, IEF, IEMA, state police ), associations, NGOs, Managers of Conservation Units and other institutions working in the region. In it, actions were raised and structured for the recovery of endangered terrestrial flora and fauna species that will be implemented in the impacted areas.
Monitoring began of terrestrial fauna in Environmental Area 1 and area of direct influence. The information obtained from this monitoring and collection of terrestrial flora, which started this April, will provide part of the data for the Rapid Ecological Assessment Study. This study will uate the impacts on terrestrial flora and fauna in this region, after the dam collapse.
Based on this uation it will be possible to direct the elaboration of terrestrial flora and fauna restoration actions that will comprise the PABT (Terrestrial Biodiversity Action Plan).
We will have 120 monitoring points of terrestrial flora and fauna throughout Environmental Area 1 and Direct Influence, monitoring species from invertebrates to mammals. Of the 120 monitoring points, 45% have already been demarcated through the installation of transects and plots. R$ 12 million will be invested in just 1 YEAR of monitoring.
This month, Ibama issued a permit to capture wildlife, which allows the monitoring of terrestrial fauna in Environmental Area 1 and its Direct Area of Influence.
The information obtained through this work on terrestrial flora collections (started in April this year) will provide part of the data for the Rapid Ecological Assessment.
The analysis will assess impacts on terrestrial flora and fauna in this region after the dam collapse. Based on this, it will be possible to direct the recovery actions of this biodiversity, that will compose the Plan of Action for Earth Biodiversity (PABT).
In May, the secondary data survey report was submitted, a step that the National Action Plan (PAN) drafting and implementing normative instructions provide for. The report issued by Bicho do Mato contains information on the conservation of ecosystems, considering structural, economic, social and historical components. This information will point to factors that threaten land fauna and flora and will subsidize the definition of recovery action to be taken in the impacted areas.
In March, the Renova Foundation started installing transects and parcels, which are areas delimited by a strip of land and where the terrestrial fauna and flora are monitored. The following month, sample collection began of the terrestrial flora in the municipality of Ipaba, which will provide part of the data to conduct the Rapid Ecological assessment study.
This study will assess the impacts on terrestrial flora and fauna in Environmental Area 1 and in the area of direct influence. This way, it will be possible to define the actions for recovery of terrestrial flora and fauna that will be part of the National Action Plan (PAN). It is emphasized that the fauna survey is to start after the license for water withdrawal and collection is issued by IBAMA.
CTBio also approved the document that defines the purpose of the PAN for the recovery of terrestrial flora and fauna in Environmental Area 1 and the area of direct influence. With this at hand, it will be possible to start the workshops on planning of the recovery actions.
The preparatory meeting for the PAN was also held. In this stage participated: Renova, the company Bicho do Mato and representatives of Ibama, ICMBio, Iema and IEF. During the meeting the following was approved: the list of participants, logistics, costs, programming and the coordination and implementation team of the planning workshops. The recovery actions of terrestrial flora and fauna will be defined during this activity.
Implementation of first plots and transects - stage prior to the monitoring of terrestrial flora and fauna.
Program activities are ongoing.
In January, the Renova Foundation filed a document with the Interfederative Committee and CTBio with the proposal of the National Plan of Action for Terrestrial Species Threatened by Extinction within Environmental Area 1 - Doce River (PAN Doce River).
