Edward Mongin

Belarus

The Great Snipe is currently classified as “Near Threatened” at global level (IUCN 2017; Birdlife International, 2015). Habitat loss and decreasing population size demand special attention to preservation of this species. The first important data concerning to numbers and biology of this species in Belarus were collected during implementation of special project in 2000-2001.

Tanzania

Gombe National Park, located in the western Tanzania, historically supported a large number of large vertebrate species; however, despite nearly half century of protection, large vertebrates like buffalo, lion, waterbuck and hippopotamus have locally gone extinct.

Peru

This project focuses on river dolphin bycatch, specifically on estimating its frequency while working to mitigate its occurrence in the Peruvian Amazon. The use of acoustic alarms (pingers) has been shown to reduce bycatch rates of marine cetaceans.

Bolivia

Bolivia is one of the Latin American countries with the greatest biocultural biodiversity (8 ecoregions, 36 indigenous peoples), and is considered a megadiverse country and one of the most diverse areas of the country are the Bolivian Yungas, there are reasons to think that they are important reservoirs of wealth mycological, endemism and ethnobiological richness, since this ecoregion is a Hot Spo

Costa Rica

Studies on the trophic ecology of marine predators help to define the ecological role that they have within an ecosystem; they help us understand the trophic interactions that occur between individuals of these populations, their competitors and their prey. The bull shark (Carcharhinus leucas) is considered a top predator that contributes to the balance of coastal habitats.

Ghana

Conservationists and agriculturalists in Ghana are challenged with how to balance agricultural expansion with conservation priorities to sustain forest and biodiversity (Asare et al., 2014). Oftentimes, conservationists fear to engage farmers in forest restoration projects due to the likelihood of expanding their farms into the remaining forests.

Enagnon Bruno Lokonon

Benin

Benin is a moderately forested country with vegetation dominated by savannahs mosaics where degradation of forests is still a major concern. The loss of forests was estimated to 75,000 ha/year between 1990 and 2011 (FAO, 2011). Land clearing for agriculture, charcoal production and overgrazing are often referred to as the main drivers of forest degradation in Benin.

India

This project is unique due to its geographical location and the species of interest. It is also the first project in India that will focus on elasmobranch nurseries and use methods such as tagging and mark recapture to study juvenile Sharpnose Guitarfish in their habitats.
