Mohamed bin Zayed Species Conservation (Project No. 12255538) - Little spotted cat - Awarded $10,650 on June 17, 2013
17-06-2013 - Little spotted cat

Despite the wide distribution on brazilian territory, the little-spotted-cat (Leopardus tigrinus) has never been very well studied. The goals of this Project are estimate density population and home range size of this endangered species on Serra do Tabuleiro State Park, one of the largest protected areas in southern Brazil. The results will be important for conservation action to neotropical small wildcats in Brazil.

Mohamed bin Zayed Species Conservation (Project No. 12255066) - Sumatran orangutan - Awarded $12,500 on December 20, 2012
20-12-2012 - Sumatran orangutan

Human-orangutan conflict is a serious and growing threat to this critically endangered species. As farmlands encroach into forest areas, orangutans become trapped and isolated, often resorting to crop-raiding for survival. This project evacuates orangutans in danger, returning them to safe forests, works with farmers to reduce and avoid the causes of conflict, and supports law enforcement for the protection of orangutans and their forests.
