23-09-2012 - Marsh Seedeater
The Endangered Marsh Seedeater is one of the several “Capuchino” seedeaters of southern South America. The species is threatened due to trapping for bird trade and habitat loss. Our project aims at improving the conservation status of the Marsh Seedeater in Uruguay, focusing on a key breeding area in Uruguay: the Bañados del Este. Raising local awareness is the key to success in our project.

20-09-2012 - Taita apalis
The Taita hills are a key biodiversity area, but are threatened by extreme levels of deforestation and human impact. Several endemic species are restricted to a tiny and fragmented range. With this groundbreaking project, we attempt to restore critical habitat by using ecological techniques to reconvert exotic tree plantations into indigenous vegetation, which will provide badly needed new habitat for two Critically Endangered birds.

23-05-2012 - Black-capped Petrel
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.

15-01-2012 - Dusky Starfronlet
Monitoring endangered bird species and establishing the biodiversity value of the Mesenia-Paramillo Nature Reserve by doing an inventory of birds, reptiles, amphibians, mammals and plants. Prevent negative impacts from communities by establishing suitable alternatives sources of income and developing projects strieving for food governance of the surrounding communities.

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.

This year, a new 600 hectare natural area reserve, Nakula, was designated by the State of Hawaii, and is currently being fenced. While no Kiwikiu (Maui Parrotbill) currently exist in this reserve, the goal is to restore the forest and reintroduce Kiwikiu to this part of Maui.

04-01-2012 - White-rumped vulture
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 ...

27-10-2011 - Black-footed Albatross
The Black-footed Albatross is considered "endangered" by IUCN due to estimated rates of incidental mortality in longline fisheries. This project will directly benefit the management of North Pacific albatrosses by identifying potential threats at-sea and those countries and fisheries with conservation responsibilities.

27-10-2011 - Mascarene Petrel
We begin the active phase of realization of the actions listed in Mascarene Petrel National Conservation Plan which was validated on January 4th, 2012.
We pursue the nocturnal field work by testing a protocol of automated recording with the aim of revealing the presence of birds in new areas close to the currently known sites.
We end administrative procedures to start the program argos.
