Brazil

Alagoas State has confirmed occurrence of the endangered blonde capuchin monkey (Sapajus flavius). The conservation status from the species (which was newly discovered and has little relevant information to assist in its own conservation) is a consequence from the habitat lost, hunt and illegal trade. Meanwhile wildlife care centers are becoming overbooked because of primates’ traffic.

Eritrea

Bird records in Eritrea are very incomplete and/or negligible, data quality is poor and bird conservation policy is in its infancy stage, but clearly not for lack of birds. Many past studies did not recognize Eritrea as a separate state from Ethiopia. Due to the years of war, survey work has been severely restricted.

Tanzania

Chimpanzee (Pan troglodytes) populations across Africa are dramatically declining (Estrada et al., 2017), mainly due to anthropogenic activities. As chimpanzees prefer areas with low disturbance intensities (Bryson-Morrison et al., 2017), only few studies have investigated how anthropogenic activities influence chimpanzee habitat use. While eastern chimpanzee (P. t.
