Assess the effect of fire. In 2019, a large area of the Nature Park Stara planina was affected by fire with unknown effects on its local biodiversity. Thus, the main focus of the project is to check if the butterfly populations were affected by the fire, to inform competent institutions and to propose conservation measures.

Savu Sea is known as an important habitat for nursery and migratory corridor; therefore, traditional fishing practices are thriving within this area. Mobulid hunt has been known as one of the common fishing practice in this area. Despite the attempt to protect the ray population by establishing National Park within several areas of Savu Sea, the ray hunt is still happening.

Growing human populations are increasing demand for fresh water, while increasing effects of climate change is reducing water availability or increasing variability. These changes are particularly acute in developing countries like Pakistan where the population is expected to cross 300 million thresholds by the year 2050 and water is often extracted at a local scale.

Indonesia

Designating land as a nature reserve sometimes is not enough to conserve it due to high rates of degradation and land conversion into farmland. On the other hand, these activities generate income for local people. To solve this issue, restoring habitat as well as informing and implementing sustainable farming practices are necessary as conservation initiatives.

Lake Tanganyika littoral areas are of higher diversity, especially in cichlid teleost of unsurpassed speciation and economic values. However, these critical habitats and their fish-fauna are undergoing multiple alterations (e.g., overfishing, water pollutions, habitat-loss, sedimentation, and lake-global warming) often leading to species loss and local extinction.

The Inhambane Bay mangroves cover an area of approximately 5800 ha within the Inhambane Bay which also contains seagrass habitat. Because local communities are dependent on these habitats they have sought to establish manage and enforce nine no-take zones in an attempt to protect the mangrove fauna as well as the juvenile reef fish that use the bay as a nursery habitat.

El Salvador

Currently, there is limited cetacean research ongoing in El Salvador. Historically, research has been limited to surveys at much larger scales (e.g. the Eastern Tropical Pacific dolphin stock surveys conducted by NOAA until 2006 and NOAA’s humpback whale SPLASH Project conducted throughout the North Pacific 2004 – 2006).

The White Lagoon is the unique permanent waterbody within the range of the Patagonia Frog (Atelognathus patagonicus). Although being declared National Park in 1945, this lagoon was infested with invasive exotic predatory fishes with touristic purposes. After a decade of surveys without a single record, in 2004, the major subpopulation of Patagonia frog was declared extinct in this lagoon.
