Mohamed bin Zayed Species Conservation (Project No. 152511325) - Bizarre-nosed Chameleon  - Awarded $9,000 on September 20, 2015
20-09-2015 - Bizarre-nosed Chameleon

The focus of the project is encouraging conservation attention for Bizarre-nosed Chameleon and for its land-living. Identified as a marsh-dependent species, Calumma hafahafa might not a tropical forest interior species. The species concentration areas give the idea to be close to marshes surrounded by a ring of forests. Marshes actually drive changes in Bizarre-nosed Chameleon abundance. It is a result of habitat choice.
