Mohamed bin Zayed Species Conservation (Project No. 182519121) - Masaduera Rayadito - Awarded $5,650 on September 30, 2018
30-09-2018 - Masaduera Rayadito

The Masafuera Rayadito, globally listed as Critically Endangered, is endemic to a single island, Isla Alejandro Selkirk, Chile. The loss of critical breeding habitat and predation by invasive cats and rodents are responsible for the alarming decline of this species. To address these threats, we developed and improved our programs of artificial nesting boxes and invasive plant control with local community support.
