Guarajuba (Terminalia acuminata), is one out of three Brazilian plants declared Extinct in the Wild by the IUCN Red List. Rediscovered in 2015, this distinctive tree survives as several discrete subpopulations within the city of Rio de Janeiro. While the rediscovery gives cause for optimism, the extant population is in urgent need of research and evidence-based action to save it from the brink of extinction.

This project focuses on the IUCN assessment and conservation of Artocarpus annulatus, an endemic tree species in Sarawak, Malaysia. It is the only truly wild member of the lineage containing two crop species (jackfruit and cempedak). There are very few collections of A. annulatus, and no IUCN assessment exists. Based on existing data, it could be classified as critically endangered and more data are needed.
