Conservation calls, the podcast

Raising youth awareness on in situ conservation is key for nurturing future environmental stewards. Teaching them about protecting species in their natural habitats empowers them to grasp the link between ecosystems, biodiversity, and human welfare.

This realisation sparked a collaborative journey with Repton school Dubai to create a unique podcast with one aim; to let the youth narrate our conservation stories in their language, filled with passion and emotion aimed at inspiring their peers.

Welcome to our podcast journey! Your feedback matters, so tune in, share your thoughts, and let’s inspire the next generation of conservation champions together!



We are pleased to share that the Mohamed bin Zayed Species Conservation Fund has made the project “Conservation of the globally endangered Centaurea mouterdei Wagenitz in Chouf District, Mount Lebanon” possible. In the first phase, which began in spring 2023, we conducted surveys to better understand the distribution and ecological dynamics of this endemic plant species within its range. We also identified major threats to the species and documented its ecology. A short film about Centaurea mouterdei was created to raise awareness.
 
In the second phase, we aim to increase community awareness by creating educational posters about the species and producing a detailed map of Batloun Valley. This map will highlight trails where the species can be observed, fostering a deeper connection between the community and this unique plant. Thank you for your ongoing support as we work to protect this rare species.

This project aims to uncover the population status of the Critically Endangered Pentaphlebia gamblesi, an endemic and mysterious damselfly, by conducting extensive surveys across potential habitats and locating adult specimens. Additionally, the study seeks to raise awareness locally and nationally about the precarious state of habitats for this and other threatened damselfly species in Nigeria’s Obudu Plateau, laying the groundwork for future conservation efforts.
 
“The invaluable support of the Mohammed bin Zayed Species Conservation Fund in funding essential equipment, fieldwork expenses, and supplies for awareness campaigns, has been crucial for the project’s success.” Abiodun Adedapo, Ecophilic Scientific Research and Innovations Ltd., Nigeria
