Alifa Bintha Haque

Bangladesh

Illegal trade on shark products is the biggest challenge of shark conservation in the world. Globally one quarter of all shark and ray species are threatened with extinction and many species are data deficient based on IUCN Red List criteria. Overfishing, the use of non-selective gears, and growing demand of shark and ray products have led to dramatic population declines in many areas.

Benin

National Park of Pendjari is adjacent to agroforestry systems which hold several native species. Those species provide food (for human and fodder for animal) in times of scarcity and other products that generate income to farmers and their families while helping to stabilize soils. However, much of the species are often neglected in policy decisions and landscape strategies.

Guinea-Bissau is of major importance for marine turtles, hosting the largest green turtle Chelonia mydas rookery in Africa, top six worldwide. Nesting of olive ridley Lepidochelys olivacea, hawksbill Eretmochelys imbricata, and leatherback Dermochelys coriacea turtles is also common, although the last two occur in small numbers.

Argentina

The future of a great part of biodiversity depends on its capacity to persist in agroecosystems. The long-term functioning of forest remnants strongly relates to their capacity to hold key ecological processes, such as trophic cascades.
