Mohamed bin Zayed Species Conservation (Project No. 13257918) - Javan rhinoceros - Awarded $15,000 on December 23, 2013
23-12-2013 - Javan rhinoceros

The critically endangered Javan Rhino may be the world's rarest large terrestrial mammal, with only about 60 individuals surviving in Indonesia's Ujung Kulon National Park (UKNP). The Javan Rhino Study and Conservation Area team at UKNP, with significant local community support, cleared 15 hectares of invasive Arenga palm to encourage growth of rhino food plants and create additional suitable Javan rhino habitat.

Mohamed bin Zayed Species Conservation (Project No. 13257839) - Himalayan musk deer - Awarded $10,500 on December 23, 2013
23-12-2013 - Himalayan musk deer

Musk deer (genus Moschus) is an endangered mammal, found in sub-alpine and alpine region of Nepal. This study aims to identify musk deer species through fecel genetic analysis, assess the habitat overlap of musk deer with other ungulates and domestic livestock and assess the anthropogenic effects on the habitat of musk deer.

Mohamed bin Zayed Species Conservation (Project No. 13257508) - Darien Black spider monkey - Awarded $6,000 on December 23, 2013
23-12-2013 - Darien Black spider monkey

We are Monitoring primates species that are Critically Endangered. We are running the first long term study in Panama using a new method to set camera traps at 10 m elevation, the Orion Camera System (OCS), which will be published soon in an international scientific journal. The project is the first studying the arboreal mammals for long period in Panama with12% of our fauna.

Mohamed bin Zayed Species Conservation (Project No. 13057746) - Fishing cat - Awarded $5,000 on December 23, 2013
23-12-2013 - Fishing cat

Fishing cats (IUCN: Endangered) occur in fragmented populations throughout their range. We are working on investigating the occurrence and distribution of fishing cats in the coastal wetlands of northeastern Andhra Pradesh, India. With the use of wildlife cameras and local awareness, we are creating a fishing cat conservation initiative that will help protect fishing cats and their habitat.

Mohamed bin Zayed Species Conservation (Project No. 13257694) - Andean Cat - Awarded $6,500 on December 23, 2013
23-12-2013 - Andean Cat

The Andean cat (Leopardus jacobita) is an endangered small wildcat inhabiting the high Andean plateau of Argentina, Bolivia, Chile and Peru. This project will establish a long-term camera trap monitoring network for Andean Cat populations in the altiplano of the Northern Macrozone in Chile. Systematic monitoring will allow assessing ecologically important data, population trends and threats, and identifying priority areas for conservation.

Mohamed bin Zayed Species Conservation (Project No. 13056548) - Asiatic Water Buffalo - Awarded $5,000 on December 23, 2013
23-12-2013 - Asiatic Water Buffalo

The Royal Manas National Park is home to many endangered species including Asian Water Buffalo. While the conservation interventions and habitat quality are maintained with adequate protection, the assessment of species population and their distribution are poor. This make it very difficult to ascertain exact status of the population. The project will assess population, abundance and population status of Bubalus arnee in RMNP.

Mohamed bin Zayed Species Conservation (Project No. 13256615) - Tonkin snub-nosed monkey - Awarded $12,000 on October 01, 2013
01-10-2013 - Tonkin snub-nosed monkey

Tonkin snub-nosed monkey is critically endangered and endemic to northeastern Vietnam. Extrinsic threats include hunting and habitat loss. Their long-term viability is further threatened by intrinsic factors such as inbreeding due to low population numbers. Current population numbers, distribution, and genetic variability will be examined in Khau Ca forest, where there are 100 individuals (2010 estimate), the largest population of this species.
