Greater Capricorn beetle

The use of conservation detection dogs to survey the critical endangered greater Capricorn beetle. There is only one remaining Swedish population of the species. To save the species a reintroduction programme was developed. Monitoring of the reintroduction to assess the success is crucial in the future management of the species in Sweden. This project will develop an effective monitoring method for the greater Capricorn beetle.

Etruscan chub

The project is aimed at improve the conservation status of two fish species endemic to Italy: the Etruscan chub Squalius lucumonis (Bianco, 1983) and the South European nase Protochondrostoma genei (Bonaparte, 1839). For both species a decreasing population trend is reported (IUCN, 2019). The concrete conservation actions include: alien species eradication, restocking activities to support declining populations, establishment of protected areas ...

Beck's Petrel

Beck's Petrel: finding the first breeding site of a Critically Endangered seabird. "Lost" for over 75 years it's now 12 years since the rediscovery of Beck's Petrel, but it's breeding grounds remain unknown. Facing potential threats from invasive species at its colonies our priority is finding a nest site by working with local communities and researchers in New Ireland, Papua New Guinea.
