14-02-2010 - Tasmanian long-eared bat
This project is studying how forest loss influences micro bat species composition and habitat use in timber production areas on the island of Tasmania, Australia. We are focusing on the Tasmanian long-eared bat, which is endemic to the island but of which little is known.

14-02-2010 - Bonobo
We have had a three year project to survey the biodiversity of the the region south of Kisangani and between the three rivers :Tshuapa-Lomami-Lualaba in the Democratic Republic of Congo, Africa. Subsequent to our discovery of important populations of bonobo (Pan paniscus) that were being hunted, we have worked to control hunting and create a protected area. This project supports this effort.

12-01-2010 - Flare-horned markhor
The goal of this project is to conserve the endangered flare-horned markhor, as well as other threatened wildlife (including Ladakh urial, snow leopard, and Asiatic black bear) in the Diamer and Gilgit Districts of northern Pakistan through surveys, hiring and training of local rangers, establishing community monitoring programs, and building capacity to better manage wildlife and resources in this region.

08-12-2009 - Geoffroy's Woolly Monkey
In accordance with IUCN Red List, Lagothrix cana is listed as Endangered, given that at least a 50% of its population has declined in the last 45 years. We intend to determine the conservation status of the species in two conservation units in the Amazon basin, assessing the human impact as its threat and providing conservational education to local population.

25-11-2009 - Scott's Tree Kangaroo (Tenkile)
The Tenkile Conservation Alliance (TCA) is a conservation NGO establishing in Papua New Guinea. TCA works to save the critically endangered Tenkile (Scott's Tree Kangaroo) and Weimang (Golden-mantled Tree Kangaroo) from extinction. TCA is establishing the Torricelli Mountain Range (where the Tenkile and Weimang are found) as a legally protected Conservation Area. TCA works directly with 39 villages, approximately 10,000 people.

25-11-2009 - Southern Muriqui
This project main objective is to start mapping the distribution and determine the conservation status of the extant wild populations of the endangered southern muriqui (Brachyteles arachnoides), in the Atlantic forest remnants of Sao Paulo State, Brazil. São Paulo State harbors the most significant remnants of the Biome which the subjects study´s species is endemic.

25-11-2009 - Himalayan Wolf
This was the first project on the wolves in the Himalayan region of India. The main objectives were to gather the information about the status, distribution, conflict with human due to livestock predation and, further, identify the important areas for wolf conservation.

25-11-2009 - Marbled cat
There is little known about the status or ecology of marbled cats, Asiatic golden cats, or clouded leopards in Sumatra; but extensive habitat degradation is though to be causing significant population declines. We are using camera trapping techniques to assess the current population of the felids in one national park and to identify critical habitat for the implementation of conservation initiatives.

25-11-2009 - Northern Pudu
To analyse and compare genetically and morphologically the two allopatric populations of Pudu mephistophiles, and the population of Pudu puda.
Verify in the field the separation of both Pudu mehistophiles populations, and the separation with Mazama chunyi.
