Benin

Gallery forests are of great ecological importance, particularly in Africa where 80% of the population rely in Non-timber forest products. Gallery forest hosts a huge amount of biodiversity. For example, in Benin, gallery forests host 1/3 of the estimated Benin Flora. They harbour many threatened species.

The idea of proposing this project entitled “ Promoting Conservation of the Eastern chimpanzees of Nyungwe National Park through creating Income Generating Activities (IGAs) to its surrounding Communities” came from the previous projects conducted in and around Nyungwe National Park precisely in the two sectors (Twumba and Mutuntu) adjacent to the park (Gisovu site).

Mozambique

There is a desperate global call for more research concerning the critically endangered guitarfishes and wedgefishes. These species are mostly either “data deficient”, as they are so rarely seen and studied, or “critically endangered”, as they have the highest market value in the illegal international fin trade given the high concentration of ceratotrichia in their fins.

Kenya

This project aims at identifying mitigation measures that will result in a win-win solution both to conservation and the local communities. When the beehives were set and colonized by the bees, the local community started to experience less elephants’ interference in their farms.

South Africa

Developing artificial shorelines, for hundreds of years, has led to a loss of habitat and species diversity which causes animals to lose their natural variability and presents an ideal environment for the invasion of non-indigenous species into marinas and harbours.

India

The main goal of this project is to build on our past efforts to conserve the King Cobra (Ophiophagus hannah) in the subtropical forests of Uttarakhand, northern India. We plan to combine ecological research and public awareness to achieve our primary goal – to conserve this apex predator and its habitat from human-induced disturbance.

Farmer-managed natural regeneration is the regeneration and management of trees and shrubs from stumps, roots or naturally growing seedlings on a farm (Rinaudo, 2007). This method has enriched many farming landscapes in Africa through a high diversity of native trees and shrubs and increasing soil fertility (Reij et al. 2009).
