Serbia

Pčinja river valley is unique habitat in Serbia, with extraordinary biogeographical features, where Mediterranean species populations penetrate towards continental climate. The peculiar combination of sub-Mediterranean and continental climate, found nowhere else in Serbia, results in a biodiversity hotspot, especially for reptile species.

Brazil

Marine Protected Areas (MPAs) act as a key feature for environmental conservation as they exclude direct impacts such as fishing and other pervasive anthropogenic effects. Although MPAs are regarded as “safe havens” for biodiversity, the intense use of these areas by tourism may play a critical role on the community structure of fauna and flora.

The south-western part of Kyrgyzstan is a transboundary territory situated between Tajikistan and Uzbekistan. The region is mountainous with karst relief and encloses the southern wall of Fergana Valley. These characteristics suggest a variety of underground habitats which play an important role for bat communities.

Nepal

The population status of critically endangered Slender-billed Vulture Gyps tenuirostris (SBV) in Nepal is estimated 50 individuals existed after rapid decline due to non-steroidal anti-inflammatory Drug (NSAID) Diclofenac (Oaks et al. 2004). In our knowledge, only 5 nests were successfully bred since 2006 in Kaski district (Gautam and Baral 2010a and Rufford 18962-1).

Cameroon

According to on-going conservation effort on the visiting marine turtle species on our nesting zones, there have been poor records of hatchling success in natural, relocated and hatchery nests. This has resulted to an observed reduction in species population rookeries in major nesting sites.

Tanzania

Habitat degradation, caused in particular by woody species invasion, has been a common phenomenon in savannah ecosystems. Poor land management such as overgrazing and frequent fire has been named as possible factors triggering this encroachment. Often, wildlife and livestock in both protected areas and communal rangelands suffer due to decreased grazing resources.
