The Mohamed bin Zayed Species Conservation Fund seeks to empower species conservation efforts and programmes globally, embodying the deep-rooted commitment of both the government and the people of Abu Dhabi to preserve our natural heritage.
To date we have supported over 2600 projects across 160 countries where we rediscovered, reintroduced and protected over 1600 species from extinction.
The Mohamed bin Zayed Species Conservation Fund’s project management portfolio provides guidance for managing any type of conservation project on behalf of a caring Corporate with philanthropic interests.
These large-scale projects are often longer in duration and require a more hands-on approach.
At the Mohamed bin Zayed Species Conservation Fund, we are continuously looking for conservation of threatened species that are usually overlooked - the less charismatic ones. Our latest initiative involves experimenting with funding for soil biota and threatened soil species. This would be for multicellular species and would not include bacteria and viruses.

The present study aims to explore the demographic tendencies of Eriosyce chilensis, a species distributed in an extremely narrow coastal strip in the Mediterranean zone at central Chile. To infer the demographic tendencies of E. chilensis we will conduct detailed mapping of the species distribution, filogeographic analyses and reproductive experiments. spatial, genetic and experimental tools.
