Ghana

The Critically Endangered West African slender-snouted crocodile (Mecistops cataphractus) is one of the world’s rarest and least studied crocodilians (Shirley, 2010). Although known to occur very sparsely in many West African countries, significant populations have been recorded in only Tai National Park, Côte d’Ivoire (M. Shirley, pers. comm.).

Mexico

Bee diversity is still unknown in various regions of Mexico. Among these, there are bees of cultural and traditional interest, such as stingless bees (Apidae: Meliponini), which are also excellent native pollinators. In the State of Michoacan, it is important to generate knowledge on their distribution, population status and also to document the local knowledge and management of these insects.
