Mohamed bin Zayed Species Conservation (Project No. 10251055) - chimpanzee - Awarded $19,196 on December 13, 2010
13-12-2010 - chimpanzee

Chimpanzees of the Budongo Forest, Uganda, suffer from a loss of their primary source of sodium, the palm tree Raphia farinifera, due to the over utilization of this species by local tobacco farmers. They now use another source, Cleistopholis patens. We are working to conserve Raphia and re-educate farmers to switch to cotton string.

Mohamed bin Zayed Species Conservation (Project No. 10051138) - Irrawaddy dolphin - Awarded $10,000 on December 09, 2010
09-12-2010 - Irrawaddy dolphin

For sometime only one population of Irrawaddy dolphin (Orcaella brevirostris) was known in the Philippines, i.e. the Malampaya Sound population in Palawan (~70-80 animals). In 2007 a very small population was discovered in the Visayas region raising hopes that there might be other remnant populations that are yet to be found. This project investigates occurrence of Irrawaddy dolphins in the country.

Mohamed bin Zayed Species Conservation (Project No. 0925815) - White-Bellied Spider Monkey - Awarded $15,000 on December 09, 2010
09-12-2010 - White-Bellied Spider Monkey

An recently initiated long-term study on frugivory by Ateles belzebuth will obtain relevant ecological data for the conservation of this endangered species. We intend to get information on food availability and use as well as identify possible predictors of white-bellied spider monkeys abundance. These informations will help to prioritize areas for future management and outline effective conservation strategies to ensure the species' protection.

Mohamed bin Zayed Species Conservation (Project No. 0925833) - Snow leopard - Awarded $15,000 on December 08, 2010
08-12-2010 - Snow leopard

Snow leopard is an iconic flagship species of the mountains of central Asia. Listed endangered in the IUCN Red list and Critically Endangered in Pakistan, snow leopard requires urgent conservation measures. This project was aimed to enhance our understanding of snow leopards and improve the conservation status of snow leopards in northern Pakistan through conservation measures and awareness/ advocacy campaigns, respectively.

Mohamed bin Zayed Species Conservation (Project No. 0925713) - Pangolin / Cape Pangolin / Ground Pangolin / Steppe Pangolin - Awarded $10,000 on December 08, 2010
08-12-2010 - Pangolin / Cape Pangolin / Ground Pangolin / Steppe Pangolin

This study focusses on the Ground Pangolins (Smutsia temminckii) living in the arid Kalahari Desert of South Africa. Although limited previous studies have been done on Ground Pangolins, this is the first arid-environment study. Through this study we are trying to shed some light on the ecology and physiology of this enigmatic rare and threatened species, and formulate a conservation strategy for its continued existence.

12-10-2010 - Lesser long-nosed bat

Creating a long-term conservation strategy for lesser long-nosed bats throughout Mexico and the US requires: increasing our knowledge of lesser long-nosed bat populations and migration; species conservation training biologists, managers and students; monitoring roosts; and incorporating “citizen scientist” observations. We seek a better understanding of population status and trends as well as the dynamics of migratory corridors and factors ...

Mohamed bin Zayed Species Conservation (Project No. 10251570) - Brown howler monkeys - Awarded $5,000 on October 12, 2010
12-10-2010 - Brown howler monkeys

This project is aimed at assessing the current population status and the main threats affecting a small and poorly known population of brown howler monkeys in the Atlantic Forest of Northeastern Argentina, after a yellow fever epidemics occurred in 2008-2009. The information gathered will be used to develop an effective conservation strategy for the species in this region.

Mohamed bin Zayed Species Conservation (Project No. 10251554) - Black-and-white colobus monkey  - Awarded $24,997 on October 03, 2010
03-10-2010 - Black-and-white colobus monkey

A population of black-and-white colobus occurs between the Sassandra and the Bandama Rivers in Côte d’Ivoire, the taxonomic status of which is not yet clear. We conducted an extensive survey within this area and found that only one population has survived in a forest grove. This population has a similar coat pattern like Colobus vellerosus, however vocalization data failed to firmly confirm this affinity.
