Masaduera Rayadito

The Masafuera Rayadito, globally listed as Critically Endangered, is endemic to a single island, Isla Alejandro Selkirk, Chile. The loss of critical breeding habitat and predation by invasive cats and rodents are responsible for the alarming decline of this species. To address these threats, we developed and improved our programs of artificial nesting boxes and invasive plant control with local community support.

Madagascar pochard

The Madagascar Pochard is Critically Endangered – just 25 birds survive at one small site. To ensure its survival in the wild, we are establishing a new population at Lake Sofia, a remote lake in the northern highlands that is central to the lives of 12,000 local villagers. Pilot releases will help prove and refine the novel and innovative methods needed for this challenging site.
