African dwarf crocodiles are among the most threatened crocodilians in the world due to extensive hunting and habitat loss-related population declines throughout their distribution. Eaton et al., 2009, proposed to split African dwarf crocodiles into three species where the West African species (Osteolaemus sp. nov. cf. tetraspis) is the most endangered.

Belize

Poaching of tropical wild meat is a cryptic perturbation, invisible beneath the forest canopy to satellite imagery and under-reported. Detecting cryptic threats is key to quantifying the extent and intensity of non-structural habitat degradation, and acoustic technology provides a novel tool to do it but has until now been prohibitively expensive.

Cameroon

Pangolins remains one of the most challenging groups to detect and to study in wildlife monitoring programs. Even with advanced technic like camera trapping that has proven to be effective for other mammal groups, pangolins in general are still referred to as elusive species (Willcox et al., 2019).

Tanzania

The Mount Rungwe Nature Forest Reserve (MRFNR) in Tanzania is a vital ecological area protecting endangered, critically endangered, and rare species. It provides macro and micro-habitats to native biota, and ecosystem services to local communities. However, its ecological integrity and critically endangered kipunji (Rungwecebus kipunji) are threatened due to deforestation and forest degradation.
