Mammal Conservation Case Studies

Mohamed bin Zayed Species Conservation (Project No. 11052385) - Red Crested Tree Rat - Awarded $5,000 on January 04, 2012
04-01-2012 - Red Crested Tree Rat

The Santa Marta Toro (Santamartamys rufodorsalis) is a poorly known arboreal mammal with only two known specimens over 100 years old. The species is Critically Endangered due to small distribution and loss of habitat in the Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta. This study aims to determine the distribution, population size, and natural history of the species in light of the 2011 observation at El Dorado.

Mohamed bin Zayed Species Conservation (Project No. 11052671) - Blue-eyed black lemur/Sclater's black lemur  - Awarded $4,000 on October 27, 2011
27-10-2011 - Blue-eyed black lemur/Sclater's black lemur

The blue-eyed black lemur is currently one of the world’s 25 most endangered primates. It is red-listed as Critically Endangered, with an estimated decline in population numbers of >80% over three generations This study aims to investigate differences in the nutritional and population ecology of the blue-eyed black lemur, in differently degraded forest fragments, with emphasis on what limits the density of the species.

Mohamed bin Zayed Species Conservation (Project No. 11052707) - Guinea Baboon - Awarded $5,000 on October 27, 2011
27-10-2011 - Guinea Baboon

Project aims to update the distribution of Papio papio, Agama boulengeri and Crocodylus niloticus in Mauritanian mountains: 1) identify new areas where the target species may occur; 2) evaluate the conservation status of Agama boulengeri; and 3) identify environmental factors related to Papio papio and Agama boulengeri occurrence, estimate the extent of occurrence, area of occupancy, and the number of subpopulations for these two taxa.

26-10-2011 - Atlantic humpback dolphin

This project aims to find out more about coastal cetaceans (whales and dolphins) : what species are present, where do they live, what threats do they face and how can we best conserve them? We work with local organisations and communities in Senegal, The Gambia and Guinea-Bissau.

Mohamed bin Zayed Species Conservation (Project No. 11252544) - Elephant of Savanah (most of them - Awarded $10,000 on July 13, 2011
13-07-2011 - Elephant of Savanah (most of them

SOS elephants aims to save the last remaining elephants of Chad which are mainly living in non protected areas.This is the reason why the NGO is developing with the surrounding communities living nearby the elephants several programs of elephants monitoring, detection of poachers, community education, but also has got its own babies elephants rescue center to save them after the poaching.

Mohamed bin Zayed Species Conservation (Project No. 10251168) - Siberian, or Amur tigr - Awarded $20,000 on June 27, 2011
27-06-2011 - Siberian, or Amur tigr

Amur tigers and people must find a way to co-exist in the RFE. GPS collar technology enables researchers to gain insights into predator-prey dynamics and help resolve some of these conflicts in a scientific manner. Our research applies this technology to assess energetic demands and kill-rates of ungulate species throughout the year, contributing to conservation of one of the world’s most threatened and iconic species.

Mohamed bin Zayed Species Conservation (Project No. 10251313) - Grevy's zebra - Awarded $22,900 on June 27, 2011
27-06-2011 - Grevy's zebra

The Grevy's Zebra Trust was established in January 2007. Our mission is to conserve Grevy's zebra, an endangered species, across its range in collaboration with local communities. Located in Kenya, with extension to Ethiopia, we recognise the critical role played by pastoral people whose livelihoods are inextricably linked to the same landscape.

Mohamed bin Zayed Species Conservation (Project No. 11252088) - Arabian leopard - Awarded $10,000 on June 27, 2011
27-06-2011 - Arabian leopard

This project was designed to establish the existence of previously unknown, but suspected leopard populations in Yemen and corridors between them and the population that we have already documented in the Hawf Protected Area. Due to serious security issues in Yemen, we have instead been continually monitoring the exceptional biodiversity in Hawf Forest and made numerous important discoveries with regional and global conservation significance.
