Mohamed bin Zayed Species Conservation (Project No. 0925412) - Amur Tiger - Awarded $25,000 on July 05, 2009
05-07-2009 - Amur Tiger

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 intends to apply this technology to assess kill rates on ungulate species throughout the year, contributing to conservation of one of the world’s most threatened and iconic species.

01-07-2009 - Hirola Antelope

Since 2009, we have been investigating the ecological relations between the globally-endangered hirola antelope (Beatragus hunteri), Somali pastoralists, and their livestock in Ijara and Fafi Districts, Kenya. Unlike many globally-endangered species, the range of hirola occurs entirely outside of formally-protected areas; thus, their fate hinges on our ability to educate and instill tolerance in Somali pastoralists whose livestock co-occur and ...

The Hirola is Africa’s most endangered antelope occurring predominantly in north-eastern Kenya (around 152 animals remaining), particularly within the 19,000 hectare Ishaqbini Hirola Community Conservancy. By developing and supporting community conservation initiatives such as protecting and monitoring Hirola, as well as community-led grazing management, the Hirola could be prevented from being the first genus to go extinct in modern times.
