IBA Monitoring

Most recent IBA monitoring assessment
Year of assessment Threat score (pressure) Condition score (state) Action score (response)
2017 very high very unfavourable low
Was the whole site covered? Yes State assessed by Habitat
Accuracy of information good

Threats to the site (pressure)
Threat Level 1 Threat Level 2 Timing Scope Severity Result
Agricultural expansion and intensification livestock farming and ranching (includes forest grazing) - small-holder grazing, ranching or farming happening now whole area/population (>90%) very rapid to severe deterioration very high
Biological resource use fishing & harvesting aquatic resources - intentional use: subsistence/sml scale happening now whole area/population (>90%) very rapid to severe deterioration very high
Biological resource use fishing & harvesting aquatic resources - unintentional effects: large scale happening now majority/most of area/population (50-90%) moderate to rapid deterioration high
Biological resource use gathering terrestrial plants - intentional use (species being assessed is the target) happening now whole area/population (>90%) very rapid to severe deterioration very high
Biological resource use logging & wood harvesting - intentional use: large scale happening now whole area/population (>90%) very rapid to severe deterioration very high
Energy production and mining renewable energy happening now whole area/population (>90%) very rapid to severe deterioration very high
Natural system modifications fire & fire suppression - trend unknown/unrecorded happening now whole area/population (>90%) very rapid to severe deterioration very high

Condition of habitat (state)
Habitat Habitat Detail Reference Area (ha) Actual Area (ha) % of habitat remaining % of carrying capacity (overall) Result
Forest 0 0 poor (40-69%) moderate (70-90%) unfavourable

Conservation actions taken at site (response)
Conservation Designation Management Planning Conservation Action Result
Most of site (50-90%) covered (including the most critical parts for important bird species) No management plan exists but the management planning process has begun Some limited conservation initiatives are in place low
