Kanivs'kyi Nature Reserve


IBA Justification

The site was identified as important in 2000 because it was regularly supporting significant populations of the species listed below, meeting ('triggering') IBA criteria.

Populations meeting IBA criteria ('trigger species'):
Species Current IUCN Red List Category Season Year(s) Population estimate at site IBA criteria met
Goosander Mergus merganser LC winter 1997 50-500 individuals B1i
White-tailed Sea-eagle Haliaeetus albicilla LC winter 1996 4-16 individuals A1
White-tailed Sea-eagle Haliaeetus albicilla LC passage 1997 5-20 individuals A1

The current IUCN Red List category may differ from that which was valid at the time of IBA criteria assessment (2000).
