Mohamed bin Zayed Species Conservation (Project No. 11252999) - Riverine Rabbit - Awarded $10,000 on January 04, 2012
04-01-2012 - Riverine Rabbit

The Riverine Rabbit Project is run by the Endangered Wildlife Trust's Drylands Conservation Programme and focuses on the conservation of this Critically Endangered species. Our project not only undertakes critical research on this rare and elusive lagomorph but also involves communities in restoration and protection of its special riparian habitat in the Karoo of South Africa.

Mohamed bin Zayed Species Conservation (Project No. 11253049) - Ridley's leaf-nosed bat; Ridley's round-leafed bat - Awarded $10,000 on January 04, 2012
04-01-2012 - Ridley's leaf-nosed bat; Ridley's round-leafed bat

Ridley’s leaf-nosed bat is one of the most threatened bat species in Southeast Asia, reported from a few undisturbed forests on the Malay peninsula, Sumatra and Borneo. Throughout its range this bat is increasingly threatened by habitat loss. Our goal is to determine whether this species, and 45 other forest-dependent bats, can ultimately persist in forests degraded by logging and isolated by oil palm agriculture.

Mohamed bin Zayed Species Conservation (Project No. 11252987) - Pileated gibbon - Awarded $10,000 on January 04, 2012
04-01-2012 - Pileated gibbon

Cambodia's most prevalent species of wild ape, pileated gibbons are increasingly threatened by poaching, deforestation and the wildlife trade. This project enabled Wildlife Alliance to survey prospective gibbon release sites, receive government approval to release gibbons into the forest surrounding Angkor Wat, select a breeding pair and conduct environmental awareness and educational activities with local communities.

Mohamed bin Zayed Species Conservation (Project No. 11052505) - Hispaniolan Hutia - Awarded $4,000 on January 04, 2012
04-01-2012 - Hispaniolan Hutia

This project studies home range, distribution and habitat use of the Hispaniolan hutia using a combination of GPS and radio telemetry. A key aim is to train fieldworkers within the Dominican Republic in order to give them the experience and skills to monitor threatened species and be able to implement conservation measures in the future.

Mohamed bin Zayed Species Conservation (Project No. 11052766) - Phayre's leaf monkey (Phayre's langur) - Awarded $4,000 on January 04, 2012
04-01-2012 - Phayre's leaf monkey (Phayre's langur)

This project is mainly focused on the conservation of Asia endemic primate, Phayre's Leaf Monkey (Trachypithecus phayrei). Global population is decreasing due to combination of habitat degradation and hunting pressures. Main objective is to find out threats affecting the survival of Phayre's Leaf Monkey in Myanmar and to provide the management strategies for conservation work.

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.

Mohamed bin Zayed Species Conservation (Project No. 11252459) - Atlantic humpback dolphin - Awarded $15,000 on October 26, 2011
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.
