Sri Lanka

Sri Lanka is an island in the Indian Ocean harboring a rich biodiversity to be one of the hottest hotspots in biodiversity in the world. Among a diverse reptile fauna, 32 species are skinks which categorized under the Family Scincidae. One of every four species of lizards in the world is a skink making them a significant component of reptile diversity.

Bangladesh

Destruction and fragmentation of seasonally flooded grasslands is threatening >75 grassland bird species in South Asia along Indo-Gangetic Plain; these birds are particularly vulnerable in Bangladesh where human pressures are especially intense. Within Bangladesh, these grasslands are now primarily restricted to a few wetlands in the north-east and to the main rivers bordering the north-west.

Malaysia

Caves on the island of Borneo host a unique and highly diverse subterranean fauna. These cave-adapted organisms are particularly vulnerable and sensitive to environmental disturbance. Unfortunately, such disturbance is taking place: limestone hills in which these caves were formed are being removed because of land-use change or for limestone and marble extraction.

Studies have reported that African lions have declined by at least 43% over the past 21 years. Tanzania host largest population of lion in Africa and it was the first country for trophy hunting in Africa with 200 free ranging lions for hunting which were legally harvested (MNRT, 2010).

Central African Republic

Rapidly growing demand for natural resources in Central Africa has exacerbated the threats to wildlife such as poaching, logging, mining and agricultural extension.

Jasmin Pašić

Bosnia and Herzegovina

The project is planned to last five years, supported by other funding, or potentially through all Rufford levels of Grants. In the first year, we focused on defining the „zero state“of bat fauna within the area/territory of National Park Kozara. We provided a first assessing database, list of species, roosting and nursery sites and the rough estimation of the population sizes.

Montenegro

The European eel (Anguilla anguilla L.) represents an economically very important species in the whole world where it occurs, as well as in Montenegro. Adults are fished throughout the year, except for adults, glass eels are also fished, which are considered to be exceptional delicacies. European eel numbers have dropped as much as 99% since the early eighties of previous century.
