Judit Dopazo

Argentina

The Chytrid fungus (Batrachochytrium dendrobatis) is a recognized global threat worldwide affecting numerous species of amphibians. Frogs and toads of Pampa's grasslands are not an exception.

Colombia

In recent decades the decline of bumblebee populations has been of great interest, due to the ecological role that these insects play on crops and wild plants. Colombia is a country highly dependent on agricultural products, despite this, there are few studies aimed to the knowledge and care about bumblebees as well as its importance as pollinators.

Julio Vasquez Alva

Peru

Plant your Future works with smallholder farmers in the northern Peruvian Amazon region of Loreto to restore degraded farmland with productive agroforestry. The region is internationally recognised as mega-biodiverse. Slash-and-burn agriculture poses a threat to that biodiversity; it is the main driver of deforestation locally.

Belize

Belize is home to 80% of the Mesoamerican Barrier Reef System (MBRS). We are partnering with a Belize-based NGO called "Fragments of Hope" to continue work on this project. Fragments of Hope is based in Placencia, Belize, which is where we will make our home base during the reciprocal transplant and outplanting efforts enclosed here.

Kashimana Ivo

Nigeria

Climate change and population growth in Nigeria is exerting pressure on its natural systems such as agricultural and forestry systems. This pressure is primarily from deforestation for agricultural expansion, game hunting, fuel gathering and development. Conflicting land use objectives accelerate deforestation, severely change agricultural and forestry systems, and impact food security.

Kudzanai Dhliwayo

Zimbabwe

This study aims to understand the status, breeding ecology and threats to White-headed and Lappet-faced Vultures in Gonarezhou National Park, Zimbabwe. I propose to map nest sites, study nesting success, and determine nest site and habitat characteristics of the two species. I will also examine the population structure of White-headed Vultures as age plays a vital role in breeding success.

Lameck Mkuburo

Tanzania

Human co-existence with elephants present a significant conservation challenge and priority in Tanzania, where they are threatened by poaching and human-elephant conflict crisis. Elephants can have negative impacts on people and livelihoods, especially in communities that share spaces and resources with them.
