Negros bleeding-heart dove

Bristol Zoological Society is leading a vital project to save the Critically Endangered Negros bleeding-heart dove (Gallicolumba keayi), a species endemic to Negros and Panay island in the Philippines. Habitat loss and poaching are responsible for the decline of this elusive species. The population survey and threats mapping of the area will be critical to create a Conservation Action Plan and implement evidence-based conservation actions.

Buchanania barberi

Buchanania barberi (Anacardiaceae) is a Critically Endangered evergreen tree, endemic to the Southern Western Ghats of Kerala, India. The species is on the verge of extinction and remaining with two adult individuals. The project aims to develop baseline data, store seeds, germinate seeds, produce seedlings, their transplant and develop environment education campaign. The information generated will help to develop the conservation action plan.

Parana pine

The Parana Pine (Araucaria angustifolia) is a critically endangered species of conifer that occurs in southern Brazil. Araucaria has a history of use in past and current South American societies, as its seeds were/ are an important source of food and income. This project aims to understand how land use and management affect population dynamics of Araucaria in the highlands of southern Brazil.
