Mohamed bin Zayed Species Conservation (Project No. 13257518) - Curryfish - Awarded $6,000 on December 23, 2013
23-12-2013 - Curryfish

Tropical sea cucumbers are harvested for the "bêche-de-mer" product (dried body wall). Due to the severe lack of knowledge on the biology and ecology of many sea cucumbers, they are in a perilous state of conservation. Populations are rapidly declining worldwide, with over 70% of tropical sea cucumber fisheries deemed exploited and depleted. We wish to better understand their population dynamics and ecosystem function.

Mohamed bin Zayed Species Conservation (Project No. 13256662) - Trapdoor spider - Awarded $5,000 on September 30, 2013
30-09-2013 - Trapdoor spider

Cantuaria are ancient trapdoor spiders that live only in New Zealand. Their small, dense populations are found in undisturbed patches of grassland and forest. As spiderlings, each builds a burrow and remains inside for its entire life. The patchy distribution of Cantuaria, and their inability to travel far, may make them unable to recover from habitat loss and fragmentation due to human activity.
