Assessing trends in abundance for vaquita using acoustic monitoring, within refuge plan and outside refuge research needs : workshop report -- October 19-23, 2009 by Lorenzo Rojas-Bracho( Book )

1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

"The vaquita marina (Phocoena sinus) is the most endangered species of marine mammal in the world. It occurs only in the northern Gulf of California, Mexico. The species is endangered due to bycatch in fisheries. The abundance of this species has declined from approximately 570 in 1997 to approximately 150 in 2007. Starting in 2008, the Government of Mexico dedicated an unprecedented level of funding and effort to help reverse this decline. It established a Vaquita Refuge in which vaquitas will be protected from entanglement in fishing nets. The level of fishing effort in other areas where vaquitas are found has been reduced by a combination of economic measures (funding fishing permit holders to retire their permits or to switch to other vaquita-safe fishing methods) and enforcement (to eliminate illegal fishing). It is uncertain whether these measures and future measures will be sufficient to reverse the decline in the vaquita population and to allow it to recover. The purpose of this workshop was to develop a monitoring plan that would allow managers to determine whether the vaquita population is growing or continuing to decline. This report details a monitoring plan within the refuge, but insufficient data were available to complete the design for areas outside the refuge, which still has intense fishing activities that would result in an unknown loss rate of the monitoring devices. Nevertheless, monitoring can begin while data are gathered simultaneously outside the refuge to allow completion of the monitoring system"--Executive Summary (page 4)
Stinky skunks and other animal adaptations by Barbara Taylor( )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"If you were a hungry coyote, would you brave a skunk's stinky spray for a meal, or would it leave a bad taste in your mouth? Many animals have survival techniques that offend the senses or strike fear in the hearts of predators. From deadly defences to revolting eating habits, this interesting book describes the disgusting and frightening survival techniques of animals. Get your hands dirty, too with some easy (and painless!) experiments."--
