Mohamed bin Zayed Species Conservation (Project No. 0925644) - White-lipped peccary - Awarded $15,000 on June 06, 2010
06-06-2010 - White-lipped peccary

The project evaluates how the ecology and movements of the threatened white-lipped peccaries are being affected by fragmentation of habitats in the Pantanal’s plateau and floodplain regions. By comparing high and low cattle-impacted sites, we will identify biodiversity losses, identify ecological corridors between the Pantanal highlands and basin, and promote sustainable cattle ranching practices to prevent further deforestation.

Mohamed bin Zayed Species Conservation (Project No. 1025977) - Nigerian Chimpanzee - Awarded $15,000 on March 02, 2010
02-03-2010 - Nigerian Chimpanzee

The aim of the Nigerian Montane Forest Project is to : combine scientific research with education at both tertiary and local community level in order to develop long term sustainable management of Nigeria’s montane forests. We achieve this through the running of an ecological research station which attracts national and international researchers and is run largely through the local community.

Mohamed bin Zayed Species Conservation (Project No. 1025959) - Indian Elephant - Awarded $9,968 on February 24, 2010
24-02-2010 - Indian Elephant

Invasive exotic species pose an enormous threat to the world‟s biological diversity. Exotic plant invasions can have negative effects on native flora, which can be in turn detrimental to herbivores that depend on native vegetation. In this project, I examined the association of an exotic invasive weed, Lantana camara with Asian elephants its food resources, habitat use and feeding behaviour in Mudumalai Tiger Reserve, India.

18-02-2010 - Azuero Howling Monkey

The Fundación Pro-Conservación de los Primates Panameños (FCPP) started in 2001 the first long-term primates population study to obtain ecological information of Ateles geoffroyi azuerensis, Alouatta coibensis coibensis and Alouatta coibensis trabeata. This is the first ever recorded data to calculate their total population and their actual conservation status. Environmental education practices are operating in Azuero Peninsula to help ...

Mohamed bin Zayed Species Conservation (Project No. 1025931) - Asian Elephant - Awarded $24,852 on February 16, 2010
16-02-2010 - Asian Elephant

The Valparai plateau, a 220 km² tea and coffee plantation-forest landscape, is crucial for elephants and people. With support from MBZ, partner organizations such as Elephant Family, and stakeholders, early warning systems were initiated to convey elephant information through TV, bulk SMS, and installation of light indicators in critical localities which resulted in decline in incidence of conflicts over years and helped foster human-elephant ...

Mohamed bin Zayed Species Conservation (Project No. 0925462) - Bonobo - Awarded $15,000 on February 14, 2010
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.
