Mohamed bin Zayed Species Conservation (Project No. 152511924) - Elkhorn coral - Awarded $12,500 on December 09, 2015
09-12-2015 - Elkhorn coral

The project includes the characterization of “La Laja” coral reef, whose structure and biological composition is not well known. It also comprises the monitoring, gathering and analysis of biological and ecological data of Acropora palmata colonies to recognize and prevent any potential threat. Training and awareness activities with the local communities are also included to enhance the conservation of this threatened stony coral species.

Mohamed bin Zayed Species Conservation (Project No. 152510395) - European Maple Longicorn - Awarded $10,000 on April 22, 2015
22-04-2015 - European Maple Longicorn

The Romanian Longicorn beetle project is the first study in Romania to evaluate the distribution and abundance of saproxylic beetles in traditionally-maintained landscapes, ultimately providing conservation and management guidelines for endangered, threatened, and data deficient beetles. Along with ecological information on longicorn community composition, species richness, and abundance, the information gathered will be used to evaluate current ...

Mohamed bin Zayed Species Conservation (Project No. 142510206) - Crau Plain Grasshopper - Awarded $11,000 on December 28, 2014
28-12-2014 - Crau Plain Grasshopper

The Critically Endangered Crau Plain Grasshopper is endemic to the Crau Steppe in southern France. The species declined dramatically during the last decade even in habitats that appeared to be suitable. Only four sub-populations are left, which are highly fragmented. A strategic conservation plan has been developed in 2014. Our project aims at implementing this plan and save this species from extinction.

Mohamed bin Zayed Species Conservation (Project No. 142510202) - La Palma Stick Grasshopper - Awarded $11,000 on December 28, 2014
28-12-2014 - La Palma Stick Grasshopper

We try to know which are the host plant species for the endangered grasshopper Acrostira euphorbiae in order to know if recent alterations (fires, grazing, cutting off)) in its reduced distribution area have seriously affected the feeding possibilities. We will study trophic preferences by means of microhistology of faeces in the wild and experimental feeding tests in the lab.
