American Bird Conservancy (ABC) set out on an expedition to capture Black-capped Petrels, affix radio transmitters, and track the seabirds to new nesting locations that could be monitored and protected. Unfortunately, we were unable to capture any Black-capped Petrels, but did learn a lot about the difficulties of capturing the seabird and conditions necessary to do so.

Mohamed bin Zayed Species Conservation (Project No. 11253113) - Stitchbird / hihi - Awarded $10,000 on January 04, 2012
04-01-2012 - Stitchbird / hihi

Forty-four juvenile hihi, Notiomystis cincta, were reintroduced to Bushy Park in March 2013 in an effort to establish a fourth population of this species on mainland New Zealand (three other populations occur on offshore islands). Despite relatively low initial survival among the females, the remaining birds and their offspring have all bred successfully. The population, although still small, is currently thriving.

White-rumped Vulture population has declined catastrophically across South-Asia, with a decline of over 91% in Nepal, due to widespread use of veterinary diclofenac. Despite ban on veterinary diclofenac in 2006, larger than 3ml vials are still available. The project aims to discourage illegal use of diclofenac (>3ml) vial in veterinary use by limiting these to ≤3ml and sensitizing local communities, veterinary practitioners and government ...
