Mammal Conservation Case Studies

Mohamed bin Zayed Species Conservation (Project No. 12055182) - Darien Black spider monkey  - Awarded $8,500 on December 20, 2012
20-12-2012 - Darien Black spider monkey

The project will observe behaviour of Ateles fusciceps rufiventris living in connected forest and will compare with Ateles geoffroyi azuerensis's data previously collected in fragmented habitat. We will obtain group structure and population dynamic data by direct observations and camera traps located at canopy. Variables resultants will lead futures plan of management for monkeys living in fragmented forest.

Mohamed bin Zayed Species Conservation (Project No. 12255178) - West African chimpanzee - Awarded $12,000 on December 20, 2012
20-12-2012 - West African chimpanzee

Conservation education is seen as a priority long-term action for the conservation of chimpanzees and wildlife. Nature clubs can play a vital role in changing attitudes towards the intrinsic value of wildlife. The WCF created nature clubs called Club P.A.N. in schools around Tai National Park / Côte d’Ivoire and schools in Boké / Guinea as a long-term conservation approach oriented towards the next generation.

Mohamed bin Zayed Species Conservation (Project No. 12255025) - Persian leopard - Awarded $12,500 on December 20, 2012
20-12-2012 - Persian leopard

This project deals with identification of hotspots of human-leopard conflicts, better understanding of underlying causes and description of conflict patterns in Golestan National Park of north-eastern Iran. Harbouring 23-42 individuals and covering an area of 874 km2, this park has been a major habitat for the globally endangered Persian leopard in the entire Middle East.

Mohamed bin Zayed Species Conservation (Project No. 12251980) - Black bear - Awarded $7,500 on December 20, 2012
20-12-2012 - Black bear

Assessment of conflict between Human and Critically Endangered Asiatic black bear, in its westernmost global extent is the main objective of this project. Extensive field survey, scat analysis, local communities interviewing and workshops holding in high conflict areas, are among planned activities to identify the type and the size of the conflicts and finding local solutions due to reduction of Human-bear conflict.

Mohamed bin Zayed Species Conservation (Project No. 12254904) - Eastern chimpanzee - Awarded $5,000 on December 20, 2012
20-12-2012 - Eastern chimpanzee

Project work focuses on the loss of particular tree species in Budongo Forest Reserve, Uganda, as a result of anthropogenic activities. By identifying those trees which are being steadily lost from the forest but which provide essential nutrients to the chimpanzees and other primates in the forest, we aim to promote their conservation, mainly by increasing awareness in local communities.

Mohamed bin Zayed Species Conservation (Project No. 12054565) - Bald uakari - Awarded $3,350 on December 18, 2012
18-12-2012 - Bald uakari

Until recently, in Peru the bald uakari was only known from the eastern lowlands near the Ucayali River. Recently, Proyecto Mono Tocón discovered a population of uakaris in the mountains of northern San Martin. The discovery of the uakaris in the mountains of San Martin is of great biographic and conservation interest. This project was initiated to collect more data on their distributional range.

Mohamed bin Zayed Species Conservation (Project No. 12054533) - Geoffroy's Spider Monkey  - Awarded $5,000 on September 23, 2012
23-09-2012 - Geoffroy's Spider Monkey

The Geoffroy’s spider monkey (Ateles geoffroyi vellerosus) is listed as Critically Endangered at the IUCN Red List of Threaten Species due to the population decline with over 50% for the last 45 years. There is only a small and fragmented population in El Salvador. A high possibility for inbreeding depression exists due to the small size of the population which can reduced adaptation capacity.
