Mohamed bin Zayed Species Conservation (Project No. 10251120) - Delacour's langur - Awarded $20,500 on September 30, 2010
30-09-2010 - Delacour's langur

The Delacour’s langur (Trachypithecus delacouri) a Critically Endangered and Vietnamese endemic primate counts only 200 individuals in 9 isolated subpopulations. Captive bred individuals from the Endangered Primate Rescue Center were released into Van Long Nature Reserve to stabilize the only viable population and to increase the genetic diversity. The project receives active support from surrounding communes of the reserve.

Mohamed bin Zayed Species Conservation (Project No. 0925431) - Vancouver Island marmot - Awarded $10,000 on September 30, 2010
30-09-2010 - Vancouver Island marmot

The Vancouver Island marmot is a critically endangered ground squirrel endemic to British Columbia, Canada. By 1998, the species consisted of fewer than 100 individuals. Between 2003 and 2010, captive-bred marmots were released to the wild and their locations and survival rates monitored. My research examines release sites to identify characteristics that increased the likelihood of these marmots surviving their first year in the wild.

Mohamed bin Zayed Species Conservation (Project No. 0925793) - Southern-central black rhino - Awarded $15,000 on September 30, 2010
30-09-2010 - Southern-central black rhino

This project was to purchase a new 4WD vehicle for the North Luangwa Conservation Programme in Zambia, a joint project of the Zambia Wildlife Authority and the Frankfurt Zoological Society. Black rhinos have been reintroduced to North Luangwa National Park in four phases from 2003-2010, and the ongoing task is to monitor and protect this population. Vehicle support for patrols is essential.

Mohamed bin Zayed Species Conservation (Project No. 0925660) - Red-capped Mangabey - Awarded $15,000 on September 30, 2010
30-09-2010 - Red-capped Mangabey

The Red-capped mangabey is a strikingly attractive primate found from Nigeria to Gabon. It is Vulnerable, and under most threat in Nigeria where the vast human population is placing increasing pressure through demand for bushmeat and timber. CERCOPAN's operation is reducing both hunting and logging in community forests in SE Nigeria, with plans for reintroduction of the species into protected forest.

Mohamed bin Zayed Species Conservation (Project No. 0905724) - Black rhino - Awarded $10,000 on September 30, 2010
30-09-2010 - Black rhino

Yearly percentage of females calving is the best fitting function of Plant Available Nutrient (PAN) and Moisture (PAM) in predicting black rhino population performance. Low PAN, high PAM areas yield maximum reproductive returns while high PAN, high PAM areas yield the converse for black rhino. This study contributes to selection criteria for areas that yield maximum reproductive returns for black rhinos insitu.

Mohamed bin Zayed Species Conservation (Project No. 10251371) - Barbary Macaque - Awarded $10,000 on July 15, 2010
15-07-2010 - Barbary Macaque

This cross-disciplinary conservation project focuses on the Barbary macaque (Macaca sylvanus) as a flagship species for the threatened flora, fauna and fungi of the unique and diverse ecosystems of northern Morocco. The project works with local people to gather scientific data and raise their awareness so they can work to safeguard the species, its habitats, and their own livelihoods.

Mohamed bin Zayed Species Conservation (Project No. 0925516) - Commerson´s dolphin  - Awarded $20,000 on July 13, 2010
13-07-2010 - Commerson´s dolphin

We identified the boundaries for management units for four key species in the Argentine Sea affected by human activities (mortality in fisheries, unregulated tourism and oil and gas exploration at sea): Commerson´s dolphin, dusky dolphin, South American fur seal and South American sea lion. The Southwestern Atlantic has been one of the most impacted marine environments in the last two decades by fisheries.

Mohamed bin Zayed Species Conservation (Project No. 0905407) - Okapi - Awarded $25,000 on July 13, 2010
13-07-2010 - Okapi

The Okapi Conservation Project in Epulu, DR Congo conserves the wildlife and flora of the Ituri Forest. Focusing on program areas of agro-forestry, wildlife protection and conservation education, we encourage Congolese people to participate in forest stewardship which is home to important populations of chimpanzees, forest elephants and the endemeic okapi. Current threats to the Ituri Forest include illegal hunting, mining and timber ...

Mohamed bin Zayed Species Conservation (Project No. 0905276) - Strong-tailed Oldfield Mouse - Awarded $5,000 on July 13, 2010
13-07-2010 - Strong-tailed Oldfield Mouse

The diversity and richness along the altitudinal gradient change depending of the heterogeneity of the habitat. I research the relation of the environmental factors and distribution of the species in seven localities along the gradient of Pampa Hermosa River, Junín, Peru. I report 34 species, the redicovery of Marmosops juninensis and the range extended of Monodelphis gardneri. Also, I found corelation with their habitat.

Mohamed bin Zayed Species Conservation (Project No. 10051330) - Javan slow loris - Awarded $4,050 on July 06, 2010
06-07-2010 - Javan slow loris

The result obtained by the population survey in the 7 sites estimated occurance in range of the 10-15 individuals. The survey results recommended two potential sites which have good habitat and carrying capacity for the release of Javan slow loris and Calobak, Tapos. Awareness public activities to find solutions to prevent the decline in current population of Java slow loris with law enforcement activities.
