André Costa Pereira

Brazil

The Araguaia floodplain in central Brazil is a wetland that covers ca. 90,000 km2 at maximum flood level along 5 months, sheltering a high biodiversity, including endemic and threatened species, and provide ecosystem goods and services, including water and food supply, and fertile lands. However, this region are under sustained pressure from irrigated rice cultivation.

André Gonçalves

Brazil

The margay cat (Leopardus wiedii) is one of the least known Neotropical felids. It occurs from the coast of Mexico to the north of Uruguay and Argentina and throughout Brazil, except northeast. It is listed as Near Threatened by the IUCN and periodic reviews are indicated due to their vulnerability. This species will likely qualify for VU A3cde in the near future.

Argentina

Habitat fragmentation, caused by geological processes or human activity could create small, isolated patches, disrupting and causing local extinctions. Facing with this fact, is necessary inferring which factors affect small mammals dynamics and their ecosystem. The Red Viscacha Rat (RVR) is an octodontid rodent, endemic to the arid lands of central western Argentina.

Andrés Valenzuela Sánchez

Chile

The Darwin’s frogs (Rhinoderma rufum and R. darwinii) have a reproductive strategy which make them unique among the >7,000 world’s amphibians: the male broods its tadpoles inside its vocal sac. Unfortunately, these amazing species, endemic to the native forests of Chile and Argentina, are highly threatened due to anthropogenic activity. Rhinoderma rufum has not been found since 1981 and R.

Zambia

Zambia is about twice the size of Germany, and has a population projected to be about 18 million by 2020. It has about 175 National Forests and 305 Local Forests. A total of 20 National parks cover about 63,630Km2 (6,363,000ha), and 36 game management areas (GMAs) cover 167,557Km2 (16,755,700ha). About 66 percent is forest land.

Ukraine

The idea of the project is to protect last remnants of old oaks forests by mechanism of protection of Red List species which are living there. Such natural oak forests are poorly represented among pine plantations of Kyiv Polissya and mostly belong to “exploitative” forests due to commercial value.

Vietnam

The Delacour’s Langur (Trachypithecus delacouri) is a limestone langur species that is only found in a small area of 5,000 km2 in northern Vietnam. Its historical distribution range includes remnant forest patches in Hoa Binh, Ha Nam, Ninh Binh, Thanh Hoa, and Nghe An.

Mexico

Sea turtle conservation strategies focus on improving reproductive success, which is determined by the number of hatchlings recruited into the marine environment. This parameter is important because it is an indicator of the suitability of the beach (or hatchery) as an incubation system, and the general health of the nesting colony.
