Mohamed bin Zayed Species Conservation (Project No. 10051631) - African Elephant - Awarded $4,000 on June 27, 2011
27-06-2011 - African Elephant

Babile Elephant Sanctuary is one of the protected areas in the country established to protect the only viable elephant population in the Horn of Africa. Despite the establishment of the Sanctuary in 1970, their range of distribution has shrunk considerably. As a result of mass influx of a large number of farmers and their livestock from the east and north, the home range of elephants of Babile has shrunk by about 65.5 percent since 1976. ...

Mohamed bin Zayed Species Conservation (Project No. 10051421) - African wild dog - Awarded $4,000 on June 27, 2011
27-06-2011 - African wild dog

A previously unknown small, declining and highly genetically differentiated population of the endangered African wild dog is isolated in a tiny patch of dense scrub forest of central Mozambique. This project keeps conservation research ongoing on its demography, ecology and behaviour, and mitigates the most immediate threats scientifically identified so far: road kills, by-catch of traditional snaring and infectious diseases harboured by domestic ...

Mohamed bin Zayed Species Conservation (Project No. 10251290) - Killer whale / Orca - Awarded $25,000 on June 27, 2011
27-06-2011 - Killer whale / Orca

Killer whales at Subantarctic Marion Island, predate on a range of marine vertebrates associated with this island. Their impact on these species is largely unknown due to a lack in knowledge of their local ecology. While abundance and occurence patterns at the island are reasonably well known, their movements, kinship, behaviour and diet remain poorly understood. The population seems insular, increasing their global conservation importance.

Mohamed bin Zayed Species Conservation (Project No. 1125923) - Amur tiger - Awarded $20,000 on January 20, 2011
20-01-2011 - Amur tiger

ZSL’s Amur tiger conservation work is concentrated in and around Lazovsky Nature Reserve; a key habitat for tigers. To ensure that the Amur tiger is not lost to extinction, ZSL is implementing a conservation programme combining population monitoring, anti-poaching measures and public engagement. By detecting trends in the tiger population and taking action in response, we hope to secure the future of these big cats.

Mohamed bin Zayed Species Conservation (Project No. 11251806) - Black colobus - Awarded $10,000 on January 20, 2011
20-01-2011 - Black colobus

The discovery of oil in Equatorial Guinea has resulted in a dramatic economic boom. As wealth has increased, so has demand for bushmeat. The threatened black colobus monkey is a preferred target among hunters and populations have undergone rapid declines. ZSL is conducting research to identify culturally acceptable and economically feasible alternatives to bushmeat to reduce pressures on black colobus and other threatened species.

Mohamed bin Zayed Species Conservation (Project No. 11251503) - Red-shanked douc monkey - Awarded $10,000 on January 19, 2011
19-01-2011 - Red-shanked douc monkey

In 2011-2012, I conducted transect surveys in 10 sites in Nakai Nam Theun National Protected Area (NNT NPA), central eastern Laos. At each site, I walked transects and recorded douc groups sighted, and signs of threats. I used both Distance Sampling and a habitat suitability model to estimate the abundance and distribution of red-shanked doucs (Pygathrix nemaeus) in NNT NPA.
