Honduras

In 2011 Honduras was declared a Shark Sanctuary by prohibiting all shark fishing. This legislation was partially repealed in 2016, to allow captures and commercialization of sharks in the Miskito Region. As a result, an artisanal fishery has emerged particularly in the Miskito Cays, that targets endangered hammerheads and other large bodied sharks to satisfy the demand for dry fish during Lent.

Natural fluvial islands are regulated by an annual flood pulse, where most islands are completely inundated, with a variability of 10 meters (Junk et al. 2001). The input of sediments from Amazonian rivers acts in synchrony with annual phenological patterning of leaf and fruit production and environmental heterogeneity (Montero et al.

Vietnam

Tiger geckos (Goniurosaurus) are considered one of the most susceptible reptile groups. Due to the occurrence in low density within restricted ranges, the lizards are highly threatened by habitat loss, over-harvesting for pet trade and the lack of appropriate conservation measures.

Mozambique

Northern Mozambique is one of the least studied areas in Africa in terms of biodiversity, leading to a recent initiative to find Key Biodiversity Areas (KBA) for Mozambique (WCS-Mozambique, 2019) to require the assessment of the IUCN status of possible “trigger species” prior to the KBA assessment process.
