23-12-2013 - Himalayan musk deer
Musk deer (genus Moschus) is an endangered mammal, found in sub-alpine and alpine region of Nepal. This study aims to identify musk deer species through fecel genetic analysis, assess the habitat overlap of musk deer with other ungulates and domestic livestock and assess the anthropogenic effects on the habitat of musk deer.

23-12-2013 - Darien Black spider monkey
We are Monitoring primates species that are Critically Endangered. We are running the first long term study in Panama using a new method to set camera traps at 10 m elevation, the Orion Camera System (OCS), which will be published soon in an international scientific journal. The project is the first studying the arboreal mammals for long period in Panama with12% of our fauna.

23-12-2013 - Fishing cat
Fishing cats (IUCN: Endangered) occur in fragmented populations throughout their range. We are working on investigating the occurrence and distribution of fishing cats in the coastal wetlands of northeastern Andhra Pradesh, India. With the use of wildlife cameras and local awareness, we are creating a fishing cat conservation initiative that will help protect fishing cats and their habitat.

23-12-2013 - Andean Cat
The Andean cat (Leopardus jacobita) is an endangered small wildcat inhabiting the high Andean plateau of Argentina, Bolivia, Chile and Peru. This project will establish a long-term camera trap monitoring network for Andean Cat populations in the altiplano of the Northern Macrozone in Chile. Systematic monitoring will allow assessing ecologically important data, population trends and threats, and identifying priority areas for conservation.

23-12-2013 - Asiatic Water Buffalo
The Royal Manas National Park is home to many endangered species including Asian Water Buffalo. While the conservation interventions and habitat quality are maintained with adequate protection, the assessment of species population and their distribution are poor. This make it very difficult to ascertain exact status of the population. The project will assess population, abundance and population status of Bubalus arnee in RMNP.

01-10-2013 - Tonkin snub-nosed monkey
Tonkin snub-nosed monkey is critically endangered and endemic to northeastern Vietnam. Extrinsic threats include hunting and habitat loss. Their long-term viability is further threatened by intrinsic factors such as inbreeding due to low population numbers. Current population numbers, distribution, and genetic variability will be examined in Khau Ca forest, where there are 100 individuals (2010 estimate), the largest population of this species.

30-09-2013 - Greater bamboo lemur
The Aspinall Foundation works with local communities to protect priority areas of the Ankeniheny-Zahamena rainforest corridor in eastern Madagascar containing populations of greater bamboo lemurs, black-and-white ruffed lemurs, indri and diademed sifaka. This is one of the only places in the world where four Critically Endangered primate species can be found living together, and all four are considered amongst the most globally endangered ...

30-09-2013 - Southern woolly lemur
The endangered southern woolly lemur faces threat for its survival due to continuing decline in the area and quality of of habitat within its range. This study will work with local communities to examine the habitat requirements of this relatively unknown species, as well as those of the vulnerable southern lesser bamboo lemur, in the littoral forests of southeast Madagascar.

30-09-2013 - Bornean orangutan
The BOS Foundation has reintroduced 131 orangutans into the Batikap Reserve in Central Borneo, thus establishing a new wild population of this endangered ape. These orangutans were captured as babies or rescued from oil-palm plantations, so BOS undertakes intensive post-release monitoring to ensure they are successfully adapting to independent living, and works with local community stakeholders for long-term protection of the orangutans and their ...

30-09-2013 - Dhole, or Asiatic wild dog
The aim of this project is to determine important ecological aspects of endangered dholes in Cambodia. In particular, research will focus on determining the minimum area and prey requirements needed to conserve viable dhole populations. Results of this project will be used to make recommendations regarding the appropriate reserve size and prey numbers needed to conserve the remaining dhole populations in Southeast Asia.
