East Svalbard

The working group of the Sys­sel­man­nen has pro­du­ced a map as a base for the ongo­ing dis­cus­sion about a manage­ment plan for east Sval­bard. The cur­rent pro­po­sal will be for­war­ded to the Nor­we­gi­an direc­to­ra­te for natu­re admi­nis­tra­ti­on in Janu­a­ry 2012. Later, it will go through ano­t­her public hea­ring. The map below is the basis for the cur­rent pro­po­sal.

East Svalbard

The cur­rent pro­po­sal dis­tin­guis­hes several zones for eas­tern Sval­bard:
Zone A: »sci­en­ti­fic refe­rence area«, which will most likely be a no go area for ever­y­bo­dy except a few sci­en­tists selec­ted by the admi­nis­tra­ti­on.
Zone B: No traf­fic during the bree­ding sea­son.
Zone C: spe­ci­fic site-spe­ci­fic gui­de­li­nes
Zone D: local bans on traf­fic at cul­tu­ral heri­ta­ge sites, in for­ce sin­ce 2010
Zone E: Kong Karls Land (alrea­dy off limits)
