The Mohamed bin Zayed Species Conservation Fund has awarded $20,005,439 to 2152 conservation projects for all species types with all IUCN classifications throughout the world. Project managers that have decided to publish their projects, are illustrated on the map below.

Black-handed Spider Monkey

There is a newly discovered population of the Central American spider monkey (Ateles geoffroyi) in eastern El Salvador. Recent research has demonstrated that the spider monkeys from this region are genetically unique and also critically endangered. Through regular observations of the spider monkeys and by mapping their range, we are creating a foundation for future, long-term conservation efforts.

Oncilla

The oncilla or tigrina is a rare small wild cat listed as vulnerable by the IUCN Red List, and as endangered by the Costa Rican environmental authorities. In this project we will define priority areas for the conservation of oncilla at the time we will also assess the conservation status of this probably unique species endemic to the highlands of Costa Rica and Panama.

Antarctic Toothfish

Antarctic toothfish, the top predator in the deep waters of the Southern Ocean, has gained a tremendous attraction to legal and illegal fishery due to its high commercial value. The project aims at improving the knowledge of the life cycle and population genetic structure of this large, long-lived species to prevent overfishing and foster its conservation within and outside of Antarctic marine protected areas.

Mollinedia stenophylla

Mollinedia stenophylla (Monimiaceae) is a recently rediscovered and critically endangered Angiosperm species endemics from a narrow area of rain forest in Rio de Janeiro state, Brazil. This project aims to perform fieldwork to collect more information about the species and samples to study the population genetics and propose measures to conservation of this species and others associated in the same area.

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.
