Mohamed bin Zayed Species Conservation (Project No. 13056001) - Greater big-footed mouse  - Awarded $4,000 on June 17, 2013
17-06-2013 - Greater big-footed mouse

The greater big-footed mouse is endemic in Madagascar. Its habitats are disturbed by human activities and predation. Studies of its movements and territory occupation have been carried out in Ankarafantsika to adopt appropriate conservation strategy. Surveys of this species have been carried out on October by using capture-mark-recapture. A measurement of few habitat variables has been performed to understand its habitat preference.

Mohamed bin Zayed Species Conservation (Project No. 13256024) - Chinese Pangolin - Awarded $10,000 on June 17, 2013
17-06-2013 - Chinese Pangolin

My research seeks to understand the ecology and biology of pangolin (e.g. habitat requirement, home range, reproduction parameters, mating systems, seasonal predation, and mortality) using radio telemetry, camera trapping, and dietary content techniques.

Mohamed bin Zayed Species Conservation (Project No. 13255626) - Snow leopard - Awarded $7,450 on June 17, 2013
17-06-2013 - Snow leopard

The population of Snow Leopard is declining because of habitat degradation and fragmentation, reduction in natural prey due to illegal hunting as well as competition with livestock, retaliatory killing of snow leopard, lack of awareness and lack of trans-boundary efforts. This project aims to minimize the human-snow leopard conflict through local people's participation in highland of Dolpa region.

Mohamed bin Zayed Species Conservation (Project No. 13055705) - Uganda Mangabey - Awarded $4,940 on June 17, 2013
17-06-2013 - Uganda Mangabey

Uganda mangabeys occur in a few forests in Uganda and are so threatened that they appear to have disappeared even in some of the forests where they were known to occur as recently as three years ago. This project is conducting an inventory of their presence and absence in different sites and is habituating groups in one of the forests with major populations for tourism.

Mohamed bin Zayed Species Conservation (Project No. 13255464) - Tonkin Snub-nosed monkey - Awarded $12,300 on June 17, 2013
17-06-2013 - Tonkin Snub-nosed monkey

Tonkin Snub-nosed Monkey is confined to a few areas in Viet Nam. The species is listed in IUCN Red List as Critically Endangered and it is experiencing a continuing decline. Khau Ca – Du Gia area contains the largest population of the species. This project aims to update the species profile and ranger skill training in Khau Ca - Du Gia area.

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. 12255396) - Cao Vit Gibbon or Eastern Black Crested Gibbon - Awarded $10,000 on December 23, 2012
23-12-2012 - Cao Vit Gibbon or Eastern Black Crested Gibbon

The Critically Endangered Cao Vit gibbon has long been extinct in most of its former range in north-eastern Vietnam, largely due to hunting. The population is currently estimated at 100-110 individuals. FFI and its partners will work to enhance the capacity of conservation authorities and community teams to perform effective monitoring, and to increase public awareness of the plight of the species and its habitat.

Mohamed bin Zayed Species Conservation (Project No. 12255374) - Black and white ruffed lemur - Awarded $12,500 on December 23, 2012
23-12-2012 - Black and white ruffed lemur

This project of conservation of Vohibe forest and all its biodiversity such as Varecia variegate, a Critically Endangered (CR A4cd) according to the IUCN Redlist, involve local community in all aspects to ensure its sustainability. The fact to reinforce the capacity of the community and the use of means of transmission of message adaptable to the reality increase their awareness among biodiversity conservation.

Mohamed bin Zayed Species Conservation (Project No. 12255315) - Bornean Orangutan - Awarded $10,000 on December 23, 2012
23-12-2012 - Bornean Orangutan

Orang-utans are increasingly found outside of protected areas, in forests and agriculture lands that are exploited by people. By better understanding how and to which extent the species can adapt to man-made landscapes, we will be in a position to design better conservation strategies for the species.
