Mohamed bin Zayed Species Conservation (Project No. 162514688) - Barbour's vlei rat - Awarded $5,000 on December 19, 2016
19-12-2016 - Barbour's vlei rat

The Otomys barbouri is classified as endangered on the IUCN list of threatened species owing to habitat destruction. With increasing tourist activities, vegetation is predisposed to further degradation which may make the habitat unsuitable for the species. This project is therefore aimed at determining the influence of tourist activities on the population and distribution of Otomys barbouri in the Afro-alpine grasslands of Mt Elgon.

22-09-2016 - Fishing Cat

Fishing Cat records in Cambodia are scarce. In 2015 our team discovered Fishing Cats at two sites with no previous records in southwest Cambodia: Peam Krosaop (PKWS) and Ream (RNP). Shortly after, we were informed of the killing of a Fishing Cat in retaliation for raiding nets at PKWS. Our project aims to describe the PKWS population and implement conservation actions to ensure its survival.
