Wildlife of Burundi[edit]

Rusizi National Park

5x expanded by Nvvchar (talk), Rosiestep (talk). Nominated by Nvvchar (talk) at 18:54, 16 July 2013 (UTC).

Symbol question.svg Article long enough, well sourced, and expanded fivefold within the timeframe. However, the "Environment" section contains very close paraphrasing of this source, and will have to be rewritten. Hook fact is verified (not sure how reliable that source is, but this BBC report backs it up), but doesn't quite make sense – Christmas trees aren't a species of tree that can be harvested. It should simply read "a ban on natural Christmas trees". DoctorKubla (talk) 10:45, 26 July 2013 (UTC)
I've c/e that section of the article. Here is ALT1: ... that Burundi's wildlife protection (protected area pictured) includes a 2005 ban on natural Christmas trees? Also, here is ALT2: ... that the Bururi long-fingered frog, believed to be extinct, was rediscovered in 2011 amidst the wildlife of Burundi? --Rosiestep (talk) 13:35, 26 July 2013 (UTC)
Symbol redirect vote 4.svg Your edits to the article didn't really address the close paraphrasing issue. I've rewritten the section myself, but now it needs to be checked by a new reviewer. DoctorKubla (talk) 18:08, 27 July 2013 (UTC)
Fixed. DoctorKubla (talk) 18:07, 6 August 2013 (UTC)
Confirming all were fixed. — Maile (talk) 00:55, 7 August 2013 (UTC)
  • Symbol redirect vote 4.svg Needs a new reviewer to check the rewritten section and to review the two ALT hooks. BlueMoonset (talk) 01:19, 21 August 2013 (UTC)
    • Comment: I assume the article was written by a non-native speaker on English as it has a lot of strange\awkward phrasing. As such, it could really use a good copyedit. --ThaddeusB (talk) 03:49, 21 August 2013 (UTC)
Thank you for your review. I've given the article a c/e. --Rosiestep (talk) 04:55, 23 August 2013 (UTC)
  • Symbol redirect vote 4.svg Still needs a new reviewer to recheck the rewritten section and the phrasing throughout, and to review the two ALT hooks. Thanks. BlueMoonset (talk) 03:36, 31 August 2013 (UTC)
  • Symbol confirmed.svgReviewed the rewritten Environment section; read phrasing throughout as "passable" though could be smoothed - some sections are heavy due to hectares/acres/metres,etc data; and reviewed the ALT hooks, as per BlueMoonset. Both ALT hooks have in-line citations. It seems ALT 2 offers readers the intrigue of re-discovered species, so that's my choice for hook.--Meghaninmotion (talk) 19:05, 6 September 2013 (UTC)
