Kashimana Ivo

Nigeria

Climate change and population growth in Nigeria is exerting pressure on its natural systems such as agricultural and forestry systems. This pressure is primarily from deforestation for agricultural expansion, game hunting, fuel gathering and development. Conflicting land use objectives accelerate deforestation, severely change agricultural and forestry systems, and impact food security.

Kauane Maiara Bordin

Brazil

Ecosystem conservation aims to maintain fundamental ecological services under the current and predicted global changes. One of the very fundamental ecosystem services of forests is the capacity to store carbon (often measured as above-ground biomass (AGB)).

Koggani Dickson Koggani

Tanzania

Many wild African mammals survive poorly outside protected areas due to several factors like habitat modification, hunting and livestock feeding. So far, competition due to dietary and range overlap, quality and quantity of forage between livestock and wild ungulates has been reported by several authors.

Kudzanai Dhliwayo

Zimbabwe

This study aims to understand the status, breeding ecology and threats to White-headed and Lappet-faced Vultures in Gonarezhou National Park, Zimbabwe. I propose to map nest sites, study nesting success, and determine nest site and habitat characteristics of the two species. I will also examine the population structure of White-headed Vultures as age plays a vital role in breeding success.

Lameck Mkuburo

Tanzania

Human co-existence with elephants present a significant conservation challenge and priority in Tanzania, where they are threatened by poaching and human-elephant conflict crisis. Elephants can have negative impacts on people and livelihoods, especially in communities that share spaces and resources with them.

Since the effects of climate change on populations of the most diverse species is real, quantifying the magnitude of these effects on species is vital. Particularly, for anurans that are organisms highly vulnerable to environmental changes such impacts can be dramatic leading to the massive extinction of species (many of which are still unknown).

Lucy Perera-Romero

Guatemala

The Maya Biosphere Reserve is (MBR) located in northern Guatemala covering an area of 2.1 million hectares. My study area comprises areas with well-preserved forest cover but with a gradient of protection underneath it. I will be working in Uaxactun Forest Concession, Mirador-Rio Azul National Park and Dos Lagunas Wildlife preserve.
