Blue-eyed black lemur/Sclater's black lemur

The blue-eyed black lemur is currently one of the world’s 25 most endangered primates. It is red-listed as Critically Endangered, with an estimated decline in population numbers of >80% over three generations This study aims to investigate differences in the nutritional and population ecology of the blue-eyed black lemur, in differently degraded forest fragments, with emphasis on what limits the density of the species.

Pasteur’s desert-racer

Project aims to increase the current knowledge about biodiversity of the PN Banc d’Arguin (PNBA), in particular of the reptiles Mesalina pasteuri, Tarentola chazaliae, Lythorhynchus diadema, and Varanus griseus (all not listed in IUCN red list). The aims were to determine the distribution in the PNBA, identify suitable areas for the occurrence of the target species, and characterise selected habitats.

Guinea Baboon

Project aims to update the distribution of Papio papio, Agama boulengeri and Crocodylus niloticus in Mauritanian mountains: 1) identify new areas where the target species may occur; 2) evaluate the conservation status of Agama boulengeri; and 3) identify environmental factors related to Papio papio and Agama boulengeri occurrence, estimate the extent of occurrence, area of occupancy, and the number of subpopulations for these two taxa.

Mascarene Petrel

We begin the active phase of realization of the actions listed in Mascarene Petrel National Conservation Plan which was validated on January 4th, 2012. We pursue the nocturnal field work by testing a protocol of automated recording with the aim of revealing the presence of birds in new areas close to the currently known sites. We end administrative procedures to start the program argos.

Atlantic humpback dolphin

This project aims to find out more about coastal cetaceans (whales and dolphins) : what species are present, where do they live, what threats do they face and how can we best conserve them? We work with local organisations and communities in Senegal, The Gambia and Guinea-Bissau.

Pyramid Maidenhair

Over the past three years, Kevel Lindsay in partnership with the Environmental Awareness Group (EAG) have been studying the native and naturalized ferns of Antigua, Barbuda and Redonda, with a special focus on the West Indian endemics and their habitats. The study has published an IUCN Regional Red List of the islands’ species, a Conservation Perspective, and now an Atlas and Guide.

Mary River turtle

The natural habitat of the endangered Mary River turtle is restricted to the Mary River in south east Queensland, Australia. Tiaro & District Landcare Group are committed to increasing its chances of survival through conservation actions (protect wild nests from predators) and encouraging people to value and care for its habitat, the Mary River.

Boelen's python

Boelen’s python (Morelia boeleni) is endemic to New Guinea found in highlands above 1000 m and below the tree line. Our recent work on the conservation genetics of this species, the first ever genetic survey of this species, shows that all captive and wild M. boeleni are genetically uniform and raise particular concern for the limited genetic diversity of M. boeleni used captive breeding programs.

Saharan rock agama

The project proposes to achieve four main objectives using data collected during a field expedition to Niger: 1) Assess the distribution of Agama tassiliensis; 2) Habitat characterization; 3) Derive a predictive model of occurrence; and 4) Conservation status assessment.

Snapdragon

Snapdragons (Antirrhinum) form an emblematic group of 25 plant species mainly distributed in the western mediterranean region. Antirrhinum martenii and A. valentinum are two rare and threatened species of this genus. Our objectives are: to conduct exhaustive searchs of the two species in their distribution area; to analyze the genetic diversity of A. valentinum populations; to assess the conservation status of the two species
