30-05-2013 - Gharial
This project seeks to assess the status of gharial populations and threats facing them in the Betwa, Ken, Tons and Son rivers (India). In the first phase, we conducted field surveys along Betwa, Ken and Son between February-May 2013, and interview surveys along the Tons in July 2013. The second phase commenced in December 2013, with field surveys and interviews along Ken and Son.

29-05-2013 - Kingiodendron pinnatum
Kingiodendron pinnatum (DC.) Harms (Family: Caesalpiniaceae), an endangered species and population is under threat due to habitat degradation and unscientific overexploitation of the oleo-resin and timber. The present study is aimed at survey and documentation of population size, structure and dynamics of species in Western Ghats, Karnataka and awareness programme on its importance and problem associated with the species and conservation aspects

29-05-2013 - Freshwater crab
The study centres on ecological questions (distribution, habitats, feeding, population size, growth, sex ratio and nutritional properties), threats and conservation status of freshwater crab, Isolapotamon bausense which is endemic to Borneo and categorized as Vulnerable by the IUCN Red List. The information is needed for effective conservation of the species include proposing the crab to be listed in the Wildlife Protection Ordinance of Sarawak.

29-05-2013 - Gorgan Salamander
This project works on informing local people engaged with Cave Salamander (Paradactylodon gorganensis) which is an endemic species to Iran (family Hynobiidae) . This species is listed as a Critically Endangered species in IUCN red list. Another aspect of this project is training professions of the Department of Environment(DOE), university professors and students and teachers to help us in teaching local people in near future.

23-12-2012 - Cao Vit Gibbon or Eastern Black Crested Gibbon
The Critically Endangered Cao Vit gibbon has long been extinct in most of its former range in north-eastern Vietnam, largely due to hunting. The population is currently estimated at 100-110 individuals. FFI and its partners will work to enhance the capacity of conservation authorities and community teams to perform effective monitoring, and to increase public awareness of the plight of the species and its habitat.

23-12-2012 - Anamalai's frog
It is now established that the chytrid fungus (Batrachochytrium dendrobatidis) is present in a population of an Indian night frog (Nyctibatrachus sp.) in the Western Ghats. It is imperative to randomly test populations of freshwater frogs across the Western Ghats and develop conservation strategies to ensure survival of populations and species of endemic and threatened amphibians of the Western Ghats.

23-12-2012 - Arabian staghorn
Corals in the Arabian Gulf have been able to withstand very high water temperatures. However, extreme thermal events in the late 90's and again in 2010 and 2011, have lead to extensive bleaching. It is essential that a better understanding of the biology of this species be established to support management and conservation of populations in the Gulf.

23-12-2012 - Bornean Orangutan
Orang-utans are increasingly found outside of protected areas, in forests and agriculture lands that are exploited by people. By better understanding how and to which extent the species can adapt to man-made landscapes, we will be in a position to design better conservation strategies for the species.
