Harris Wei-Khang Heng

Malaysia

We have conducted field surveys from 2016 to 2018 to collect spatio-temporal data on the foraging activities of the endangered dugongs (Dugong dugon) in the Sibu-Tinggi Archipelago. Throughout this sampling period, we have observed that dugong sightings have become increasingly rare and seagrass habitats reducing in extent an abundance.

Colombia

After reviewing the state of knowledge and distribution of several species of endemic mammals of Colombia, we have identified some taxa of medium size mammals, considered historically as “subspecies”, but totally neglected. Among then, medium-sized rodents (porcupines and agouties) have been facing some problems and have also been largely hunted in Colombia.

Hem Bahadur Katuwal

Nepal

Lesser Adjutant (Leptoptilos javanicus) is a globally and nationally threatened farmland bird found in lowland Nepal (elevation < 300 m). Although it is distributed within the south and southeast Asia, it breeds in fewer places within these countries (BirdLife International 2017). There are few studies in Lesser Adjutant in Nepal and also in the south and south-east Asia.

Hening Triandika Rachman

Indonesia

Rhinagrion tricolor is only Family of Megapodagrionidae known from Java (Krüger 1898; Laidlaw 1924; Lieftinck 1934, 1954). Currently only 17 specimens available from 1937 and 1958. All specimens were collected in Natural History Museum Leiden. There are no records since 1937, that is most likely due to lack of expert sampling on Java (Dow, 2015).

Tanzania

The Mount Loleza Forest Reserve (MLFR) is among the potential ecological areas in the Southern Highlands of Tanzania. The communities around have been benefiting from the diverse of ecosystem services offered by the MLFR in supporting their livelihood. However due to deforestation, agriculture, and other ongoing activities, the resilience of these ecosystem services is at stake.

Kazakhstan

Northern Kazakhstan is a unique place in the range of the red-breasted goose, where almost the entire world population stops on a small area during spring and autumn migrations. This area is very important in the annual life cycle of these species. However, this area is very dangerous for birds, especially in the autumn period, when hunting for waterfowl is open.

Benin

Gallery forests are of great ecological importance, particularly in Africa where 80% of the population rely in Non-timber forest products. Gallery forest hosts a huge amount of biodiversity. For example, in Benin, gallery forests host 1/3 of the estimated Benin Flora. They harbour many threatened species.
