Bristol Zoological Society is leading a vital project to save the Critically Endangered Negros bleeding-heart dove (Gallicolumba keayi), a species endemic to Negros and Panay island in the Philippines. Habitat loss and poaching are responsible for the decline of this elusive species. The population survey and threats mapping of the area will be critical to create a Conservation Action Plan and implement evidence-based conservation actions.

Mohamed bin Zayed Species Conservation (Project No. 190520889) - Indian pangolin  - Awarded $4,700 on April 28, 2019
28-04-2019 - Indian pangolin

There is scant information on Indian pangolins in Bardia district of Nepal. We established baseline on the presence/absence of Indian pangolins and characterized environmental variables associated with their habitat (burrows) in selected community forests in the buffer zone of Bardia National Park. Importantly, we also built and strengthen the capacity of local communities in pangolin conservation by conducting trainings and outreach programs.
