- Marine spatial planning - Megafauna
- This online tool presents the results from a sub-project part of the Marine Spatial Planning (MSP) project focussing on identifying key areas for marine megafauna in the Falkland Islands’ waters to inform MSP. The study was conducted in collaboration between SAERI and BirdLife International and funded by Darwin Plus (project DPLUS027). Some layers representing the distribution of human activities can be overlapped with the individual species’ core-use areas. The analyses involved combining tracking and at-sea sighting data, Kernel analyses, extrapolation to non-tracked colonies using simple distance-bathymetry models and weighed average with conservation status and data quality scores (an upcoming publication will detail the analytical framework).
