Tijana Trbojevic

Bosnia and Herzegovina

The last Balkan lynx (Lynx lynx balcanicus Bureš, 1941) in Bosnia and Herzegovina (B&H) was documented in 1911 and since then has been listed as an extinct species. The rest of this Eurasian subpopulation survived in isolated and relatively small parts of the North Macedonia, Kosovo, Albania and probably Montenegro.

Tung Bui Thanh

Vietnam

Northern white-cheeked gibbon (Nomascus leucogenys) historically occurs from Northwest Vietnam to Northern Laos and Southern China. Habitat loss and poaching are major threats to the survival of the gibbon. The gibbon in China may now be as few as 10 individuals are unlikely to persist even in the short-term. The population in Laos is unknown.

Ugo Mendes Diniz

Brazil

The ecology of nectar-feeding bats and their resource plants is widely unknown. The Brazilian Cerrado is a rich neotropical savannah containing several nectar bat species, but it is under severe threat due to the expansion of urban and agricultural matrices.

Upendo Msalilwa

Tanzania

The African baobab (Adansonia digitata L.) is an important source of income food, and nutritional supply for local communities in rural Africa especially during the times of food shortage. It is the most important edible savannah trees, and this necessitates a close conservation of the species both in the protected and unprotected areas.

Vedharajan Balaji

India

The project would strengthen existing dugong rescue and release unit of our centre, recruiting two staffs from fishing community. These two staffs will coordinate the volunteers from each village for dugong watch programme to provide update of dugong sightings in local area. So, it would help for rescue and release of dugongs as well as preventing dugong hunting.

Víctor Aguilera Molina

Mexico

The global decline in pollinator abundance and diversity is alarming, as it threatens both the balance of ecosystems and agricultural productivity. This project deals with evaluating the state of pollinating insects, especially bees and flies, in the north-western Mexican state of Baja California, where agricultural areas are expanding.

India

The Western Ghats of India, a global biodiversity hotspot, has experienced a 40% reduction in forest cover, and a four-fold increase in forest fragments in the last century. Moreover, only 9% of the Ghats is protected in reserves, while most of the remaining is dominated by human-use landscapes.

Vivianne Eilers

Brazil

The construction and operation of power lines leads to various threats to biodiversity. For birds, the introduction of new obstacles in their usual flight path may lead to a direct risk of mortality. In Brazil, the evidence of avian interaction with power lines is mainly presented in monitoring reports made to meet environmental licensing process conditions.
