Mohamed bin Zayed Species Conservation (Project No. 10051326) - Sanje mangabey - Awarded $2,647 on July 06, 2010
06-07-2010 - Sanje mangabey

Our study examines gastrointestinal parasitic infection in a population of endangered Sanje mangabeys in the Udzungwa Scarp Forest Reserve, Tanzania. Through primate censuses and fecal collection, we document infection prevalence in relation to human encroachment and habitat destruction. As there are fewer than 1000 individuals left in this population, assessing the risk of disease infection is a necessary step for effective conservation.

Mohamed bin Zayed Species Conservation (Project No. 10051129) - Grevy's zebra - Awarded $4,595 on July 05, 2010
05-07-2010 - Grevy's zebra

The aims of this project were to (1) understand the factors influencing foal survival in the endangered Grevy's zebra, and (2) investigate how landscape use patterns of lactating female zebra are influenced by differences in forage quality. We discovered that first year foal survival is less than 30% and that lactating females choose areas in which forage contains significantly higher quantities of key nutrients.

Mohamed bin Zayed Species Conservation (Project No. 1025620) - Atlantic Humpback Dolphin - Awarded $15,000 on June 09, 2010
09-06-2010 - Atlantic Humpback Dolphin

The Atlantic humpback dolphin is among the planet’s most rare and threatened marine mammals. Endemic to West Africa, the species has declined precipitously in recent years. This project aims to assess essential life history parameters (population size, preferred habitats, threats) for the species in Gabon and Congo, and to raise awareness of the species amongst local resource managers, resource users, and the NGO community.

Mohamed bin Zayed Species Conservation (Project No. 0925593) - Sumatran rhino - Awarded $25,000 on June 06, 2010
06-06-2010 - Sumatran rhino

The Sumatran rhino is Critically Endangered; less than 200 individuals remain in the wild. The International Rhino Foundation operates Rhino Protection Units, elite four-person anti-poaching teams, in two of the three main habitats left for Sumatran rhinos. These units, called RPUs, patrol national parks, monitoring rhinos, tigers, elephants and other threatened species, removing snares and traps, and apprehending poachers and encroachers.
