Tanzania

The Mount Rungwe Nature Forest Reserve (MRFNR) in Tanzania is a vital ecological area protecting endangered, critically endangered, and rare species. It provides macro and micro-habitats to native biota, and ecosystem services to local communities. However, its ecological integrity and critically endangered kipunji (Rungwecebus kipunji) are threatened due to deforestation and forest degradation.

Honduras

In 2011 Honduras was declared a Shark Sanctuary by prohibiting all shark fishing. This legislation was partially repealed in 2016, to allow captures and commercialization of sharks in the Miskito Region. As a result, an artisanal fishery has emerged particularly in the Miskito Cays, that targets endangered hammerheads and other large bodied sharks to satisfy the demand for dry fish during Lent.

In conservation science, in-situ conservation has been preferred to ex-situ conservation. However, when in-situ conditions are not suitable, ex-situ conservation becomes compulsory to save species. This is the case of Ipomoea beninensis Akoègninou, Lisowski & Sinsin (Convolvulaceae), one of the endemic species of Benin.

Securidaca longepedunculata Fresen. (Violet plant) is a shrub in the family Polygalaceae (Beentje, 1994). The species has been documented to have medicinal uses (Matthews, 1994).
