20-10-2009 - Spinner dolphins
Dolphin watching tourism at Lovina, Bali developed from the late 1980s when local artisanal fishers formed self-regulating cooperatives. Up to 180 dedicated small fishing vessels carry passengers to watch dolphins that are predictably found close to shore. The operation largely caters for Western tourists, mostly tertiary-educated. This research examined the sustainability status of dolphin watching in Lovina from ecological, social, economic and ...

15-10-2009 - Snow leopard
The endangered snow leopard (Panthera uncia) is among the least known big cat. Using refined non-invasive genetic techniques, we conducted surveys in areas lacking information on population size or structure, and assessed genetic variation across large sections of leopard range in Central Asia. We trained range-country biologists and helped build the capacity of wildlife genetics laboratories in Nepal and Bhutan.

The overarching goal of the proposed project is to advance the effort to save the critically endangered Sumatran rhino from extinction. Our objective within the scope of this grant is to increase the number of Sumatran rhinos contributing genetically to the captive breeding program which serves as an insurance population for the rapidly dwindling wild population.

14-10-2009 - Striped hyena
To adapt a new, non-invasive and cost-effective footprint identification technique (FIT) for monitoring the elusive and endangered striped hyena in Turkey. This beautiful animal is widely persecuted and there are no comprehensive population monitoring strategies. FIT is a species-specific monitoring tool developed by WildTrack (www.wildtrack.org)and can give high accuracy in identifying at the species, individual, age-class and sex levels.

The King Cobra Telemetry Project was started in March 2008 at the Agumbe Rainforest Research Station in Karnataka, India. The main objectives of the project are to study the ranging patterns, habitat use and behavior of wild king cobras. Emphasis is also given on training young field biologists, creating awareness and educating people about the conservation significance of this apex predator.

05-07-2009 - Amur Tiger
Amur tigers and people must find a way to co-exist in the RFE. GPS collar technology enables researchers to gain insights into predator-prey dynamics and help resolve some of these conflicts in a scientific manner. Our research intends to apply this technology to assess kill rates on ungulate species throughout the year, contributing to conservation of one of the world’s most threatened and iconic species.
