IP073: Antarctic Specially Protected Species

ATCM XXVII and CEP VII 2004, Capetown, South Africa

Information Paper



At XXV ATCM WP038 SCAR proposed a process for providing the CEP with recommendations for Special Protection based on an international assessment of all the available scientific evidence. SCAR proposed to undertake the assessment with the appropriate groups in IUCN to establish which species fell into the categories Vulnerable, Endangered and Critically Endangered. This paper reports on progress made in this endeavour and future action required.
