Mohamed bin Zayed Species Conservation (Project No. 14259589) - Ziyuan Fir - Awarded $13,000 on September 16, 2014
16-09-2014 - Ziyuan Fir

FFI is working to conserve the Ziyuan fir tree in Southern China by partnering with local communities to improve management of the Yinzhulaoshan PNR, thereby protecting the remaining 600 trees and promoting its natural regeneration. To achieve this goal, FFI aims to implement regulations for co-management of the reserve, reduce incidences of habitat disturbance, and foster positive attitudes towards conservation in local communities.

Mohamed bin Zayed Species Conservation (Project No. 13257818) - Pokemeboy  - Awarded $10,000 on December 23, 2013
23-12-2013 - Pokemeboy

Acacia anegadensis is a Critically Endangered plant species, endemic to the British Virgin Islands. Although locally abundant on the island of Anegada, the future of this species is not guaranteed. Its main habitat is under extreme pressure for residential and tourism development. This project will investigate the distribution and genetic diversity of A. anegadensis, which is vital knowledge to inform conservation actions.

Mohamed bin Zayed Species Conservation (Project No. 13257800) - Strydom's yam - Awarded $7,500 on December 23, 2013
23-12-2013 - Strydom's yam

Dioscorea strydomiana is only known from one location and there are fewer than 250 extant mature individuals. The extremely restricted range and small population size, combined with a very long reproductive cycle, weak recruitment, a major threat from harvesting for medicinal purposes, all make this yam extremely threatened - the most highly threatened yam in the world.

Mohamed bin Zayed Species Conservation (Project No. 13254964) - Chilenito - Awarded $15,000 on September 30, 2013
30-09-2013 - Chilenito

The present study aims to explore the demographic tendencies of Eriosyce chilensis, a species distributed in an extremely narrow coastal strip in the Mediterranean zone at central Chile. To infer the demographic tendencies of E. chilensis we will conduct detailed mapping of the species distribution, filogeographic analyses and reproductive experiments. spatial, genetic and experimental tools.

29-05-2013 - Sakoambanditse

This project is about to support and empowered local communities surrounding Analavelona sacred forest to conserve its natural ecosystems through sustainable use of natural resources. So farmers keep use grassland surrounding the forest as pasture but find a strategy to prevent the fire use to renew pasture to spread and destroy forest boundary.
