WP001: Proposal to List Southern Giant Petrel as a Specially Protected Species under Annex II

Summary:

This paper lays out the details to support the designation of southern giant petrel as regionally endangered and proposes designation as a Specially Protected Species on regional grounds. It gives an overview of previous disscussions over whether the Southern Giant Petrel should be designated as Specially Protected Species and discusses the criteria and the assessment of the degree of endangerment for Southern Giant Petrel. SCAR recommends that those regional populations of Southern Giant Petrel breeding southward of the Antarctic Polar Front be considered for designation as a Specially Protected Species, with an associated Protection Action Plan.
