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. 11252015) - Mediterranean monk seal - Awarded $9,000 on June 27, 2011
27-06-2011 - Mediterranean monk seal

The Mediterranean monk seal, one of the most endangered marine mammals in the world, numbers fewer than 600 individuals. The largest population approximately 250 - 350 individuals, survives in the eastern Mediterranean Sea, mainly at remote locations in the Aegean Sea in Greece. MOm/The Hellenic Society for the Study and Protection of the Monk Seal, operates the Rescue and Information Network (RINT).

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.

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.
