Tanzania is estimated to hold the world’s largest population of African lions (Panthera leo), with the Ruaha ecosystem holding 10% of this population. However, lions in this area often come into conflict with livestock and are killed by pastoralists from Barbaigs, Maassai, and Sukuma tribes.

Brazil

The loss of habitats by fragmentation of the landscape directly reflects the loss of biodiversity. Biological groups with less dispersive and more sensitive potential, such as amphibians, become as a matter of priority, threatened and in danger of extinction.

Uganda

Among the Bothriocline plants, Bothriocline auriculata is the only endemic species in Uganda. Although Bothriocline auriculata could thrive under a wide range of ecosystems, it is only sited along the slopes of Mount Elgon. This is the only remaining known species habitat, and it is being destroyed by residents in search for arable farmland, and deforestation for fuel-wood and timber.

Kenya

Centuries ago lions, humans and their livestock coexisted; however, in the recent decades the frequency of human-carnivore conflicts has increased significantly. This has attributed to reduction in wild prey, increased contact between lions, people and their livestock due to loss/fragmentation of suitable habitat.

Pakistan

One of the major challenges of conservation of biological communities in areas facing degradation is the unavailability of baseline studies during the pristine phase (Drumbrell et al. 2008; Trisurat et al. 2010). Monitoring is the process of determining state of a system and measuring changes in that system over time (Yoccoz et al. 2001).

Lomami National Park was created in July 2016. This new park has a core area and a large buffer zone in which local communities should be allowed certain extractive activities to satisfy their own needs (Mushagalusa, 2016). However, to date, there is no management plan as little information is available about this park.

Biodiversity has been decreasing worldwide owing to increase in human population, encroachment into protected areas and other developments (Loveridge et al., 2010). Therefore, conservation of wildlife especially animals with large home range such as lion has been a challenge (Trinkel, 2013).

Indonesia

The project will focus on the biodiversity of sharks and rays, or elasmobranchs in Rote Island. Rote is the southernmost island of Indonesia and the southernmost part of the Savu Sea Marine National Park. Critical habitats such as extensive mangrove forest, sea grass beds and coral reefs surround the island.
