assessment of mortality in wild animals connected with human projects and impacts

Project title: Criteria for the assessment of mortality in wild animals connected with human projects and impacts

Focus

In particular, it is explained how the developed Index of Sensitivity to Mortality (MGI) methodology can be used to operationalise the assessment of a significantly increased risk of mortality under species protection law.

A project of the Federal Agency for Nature Conservation (BfN)

The Index of Sensitivity to Mortality (MGI) is a tool for assessing the mortality of wild animals in the context of projects and activities.

project aims

The MGI has been developed and consulted over many years. It enables to distinguish mortality risks relevant to nature conservation from less significant or negligible individual losses in terms of nature conservation and planning for the interpretation and implementation of legal norms. With the update and expansion that has now taken place, the contents have also been prepared in a more user-friendly manner for practical use. The complete publication now comprises Part I with the overarching legal, technical and planning methodological principles of the MGI methodology, Part II with eight application-related guidelines for specific project types and species groups, and Part III with the scientific data summarised in extensive appendices.
