Mohamed bin Zayed Species Conservation (Project No. 190520889) - Indian pangolin  - Awarded $4,700 on April 28, 2019
28-04-2019 - Indian pangolin

There is scant information on Indian pangolins in Bardia district of Nepal. We established baseline on the presence/absence of Indian pangolins and characterized environmental variables associated with their habitat (burrows) in selected community forests in the buffer zone of Bardia National Park. Importantly, we also built and strengthen the capacity of local communities in pangolin conservation by conducting trainings and outreach programs.

There is a newly discovered population of the Central American spider monkey (Ateles geoffroyi) in eastern El Salvador. Recent research has demonstrated that the spider monkeys from this region are genetically unique and also critically endangered. Through regular observations of the spider monkeys and by mapping their range, we are creating a foundation for future, long-term conservation efforts.

African golden cats are severely threatened by poaching both as bycatch and direct hunting. We implement community-based initiatives through "pig seed banks" to improve local livelihoods while dissuading poaching and the threat it poses to African golden cats and other wildlife. This is the first-ever community-based conservation initiative on the African golden cat anywhere in the species range.
