The Cameroon-Nigeria border region where the Cross River gorilla occurs is a biodiversity hotspot of global significance. The Cross River gorilla can therefore play a role as a ‘flagship’ species; the actions proposed in this plan ensure the survival of both this Critically Endangered ape and the region’s immense biological wealth.
This guide seeks to inform conservation practice in the tropical
Western Pacific, including the island states of Melanesia,
Micronesia and Polynesia, as well as Indonesia, the Philippines
and East Timor.
The report shows that while tigers are in dire trouble in some areas, they are still hanging on in others. Meanwhile, opportunities to grow tiger populations in landscapes where conservation efforts are beginning to take hold.
This report profiles more than a dozen animal species and groups impacted by changing land and sea temperatures, shifting rain patterns, exposure to new pathogens and disease, and increased threats of predation.
This paper focuses on only one piece of this complex challenge: the ways in which conservation action has been informed, and should be informed, by the interaction between ecological scale and governance. The published literature does not provide much guidance
Decisions that affect how people use land are among the most fraught that any enlightened society has to grapple with. Two claims that typically come out on the short end of the land-use debate are the claims of indigenous people and claims for non-human species.
The Western Ghats of India, in which Kudremukh Reserve is a part, is assessed to be one of the 25 hotspots identified for bio-diversity conservation in the world. Kudremukh is also the largest protected wildlife reserve of a wet evergreen shola type
Secondary data as well as the monsoon study presented in this report confirm that not only has the sediment load in the Bhadra River dramatically increased as a result of the mining, but also that a very small fraction of the watershed area, comprising the KIOCL mining site, is by far the major contributor to sediment loads in the Bhadra River.
Crop raiding is a cause of much conflict between farmers and wildlife throughout the world. In Africa the great dependence of a large proportion of the human population for their survival on the land, coupled with the presence of many species of large mammal leads to many sources of conflict between people and wildlife.
