Ghana

Although the cetaceans of the Gulf of Guinea and Ghana remain poorly studied, periodical monitoring reveals that these seawaters support diverse cetacean species. Six (6) baleen whale species and twenty-two (22) toothed whale and dolphin species most likely occur in the region. Three of these whale species are endangered (blue and fin whales), two are vulnerable (i.e.

Angola

Afromontane forest is the most threatened habitat type in Angola (<800 ha remaining). It forms the smallest and most isolated Afromontane centre. Mount Moco has the second-most Afromontane forest in Angola, but rapid forest loss and degradation, driven primary by human-caused grassland fires, is putting endemic, forest-dependent birds at risk of extinction.

Assess the effect of fire. In 2019, a large area of the Nature Park Stara planina was affected by fire with unknown effects on its local biodiversity. Thus, the main focus of the project is to check if the butterfly populations were affected by the fire, to inform competent institutions and to propose conservation measures.

The Poços de Caldas Plateau is inserted in the Atlantic Forest, wich has high altitudes due to its geological formation process (~ 75million years ago). With the shape a "volcanic caldera" surrounded by hills with altitudes that reach 1700 meters, all streams are born and drain inside this semicircular region.

African vultures are among the most threatened groups of birds globally. In human settlements mutualistic relationships have been established: vultures cleaning in exchange for food. Thus, their decline may seriously impact human health. This crisis is however still poorly documented in West Africa, hampering the development of adequate conservation strategies.

Guatemala

Abronia campbelli is critically endangered due to habitat loss, as a result of land-use change for agriculture and livestock. This species was considered practically extinct since its description but, recently two new distribution areas have been discovered for the species, bringing hope for the species conservation status.

Moreno-Barrientos, Israel

Mexico

In my previous research, I observed that the shark fishery in the area is in critical condition since immature organisms are extracted at a higher rate than adults jeopardizing shark populations' viability. Scientific information generated by the present project will help design and implement management and conservation strategies for reefs and Chondrichthyes' associated species.

Moro Seidu

Ghana

Limbochromis robertsi is only known from the Pra River Basin in Ghana. The species has been classified as Endangered owing to its limited geographical distribution, of less than 500 km2 (IUCN, 2010).

Indonesia

Savu Sea is known as an important habitat for nursery and migratory corridor; therefore, traditional fishing practices are thriving within this area. Mobulid hunt has been known as one of the common fishing practice in this area. Despite the attempt to protect the ray population by establishing National Park within several areas of Savu Sea, the ray hunt is still happening.
