FAQ about new WWFF references

Tags

In my first one and a half week as EU Coordinator, I have seen some confusion about adding new areas to the WWFF programWe can´t run a global Flora Fauna Program without rules. From my point of view, we have a few simple rules in World Wide Flora Fauna. Most of them from the very beginning. See: GLOBAL RULES. In this Article I will try to sort out a few issues and questions.

1.When does an area qualify for a new number ?

Most of the areas qualifying for WWFF can be found at https://www.protectedplanet.net/

Not all areas in Protected Planet can be used, it has to be in one of the following Categories :

  • IUCN (Catagoty Ia to VI)

  • Natura2000

  • Natural World Heritage Sites

  • Biosphere Reserves

  • Ramsar

  • Marine Protected Areas

Each National Program can adopt up to 200 new references per calendar year.

The National Coordinator in each Contry have the mandate to decide which areas.

Activators have to apply proposals for new refs to their National Coordinator. Continue reading

Denise and I got up at 6.30am to walk our dog before having breakfast and setting out for Dunwich on the Suffolk coast.

Dingle Marshes is on the edge of the village and has a large car park so not too far to walk.

Our stations are very minimal both being QRP operators ad consist of Elecraft KX2’s with 2.5Ah Lypo batteries, a couple of camping chairs, a couple of 10m poles one for the half wave end fed vertical (with a 1m extension to the pole) and the other for the link dipole for the 40/20m inverted V.
