Cansu İlkılınç

Turkey

Despite there are many stranding events on the Aegean Sea coasts but existing studies aren’t adequate and systematic. The project is aimed to determine the current and potential threats caused by anthropogenic factors and reduce all these impacts on the resident cetacean populations or migrating ones in the Turkish Aegean coast with the support of NGOs and raising public awareness.

Colombia

Given the contemporary processes of transformation, loss and fragmentation of natural habitats, the protected areas are becoming more and more isolated. However, many species require large areas that far exceed the size of these, which causes loss of individuals, genetic diversity, and affects the health of ecosystems, the ecological and evolutionary processes of species and their populations.

Mexico

The combined effects of climate change and human population growth are greatly affecting the availability of key resources such as water. Capacity to deal with the consequences of this phenomenon will define, in a large extent, the future of biodiversity and mankind.

Tanzania

The small, diurnal dwarf gecko, Lygodactylus williamsi is endemic to two small forests in the eastern central Tanzania. The species is territorial and exclusively dwells on screw pines (Pandanus rabaiensis).

Chathurika Munasinghe

Sri Lanka

Seagrass meadows in Sri Lanka are highly fragmented and are more vulnerable to number of stressors. It has led to the population shrinking of Dugongs, sea turtles and commercially important fishery species. This approach of restoration will enable long-term predictions of the outcomes to be made from different species for transplanting.

Chefor Fotang

Cameroon

The Nigeria-Cameroon (Pan troglodyes ellioti) is the rarest and most threatened sub-species of Chimpanzee. The ecology and behaviour of remaining populations in the North West region of Cameroon is unknown. Line transect, Wildlife Camera trapping, and collection of faeces samples will be employed as non-invasive research methods in this project.

Christine Rose Coppinger

Zambia

Where the potential of pollinator-supported NTFPs (such as honey) to support rural livelihoods have been widely acknowledged, an in depth assessment of the impacts of their exploitation has not been done.

Christopher Chesire

Kenya

My project will evaluate moist upland Afromontane forests in Kenya’s rift valley to elaborate on whether the forests can cope up with the existing high pressure of utilization and can successfully be able to maintain healthy proportions of its major species.

Malaysia

Huge areas of tropical forest have been selectively logged. Although logging causes some species to decline, logged forests are increasingly shown to have high conservation value, hosting enormous amounts of wildlife and continuing to provide many valuable services to humankind.

Cindy Hurtado Martinez

Ecuador,Peru

To aid in global conservation planning, Mittermeier et al. (2004) proposed 34 biodiversity hotspots as priority conservation areas. The Tumbesian Dry Forest is the southern portion of the Tumbes-Choco-Magdalena hotspot, one of the five hotspots that are located in South America.
