Black colobus

The discovery of oil in Equatorial Guinea has resulted in a dramatic economic boom. As wealth has increased, so has demand for bushmeat. The threatened black colobus monkey is a preferred target among hunters and populations have undergone rapid declines. ZSL is conducting research to identify culturally acceptable and economically feasible alternatives to bushmeat to reduce pressures on black colobus and other threatened species.

Red-shanked douc monkey

In 2011-2012, I conducted transect surveys in 10 sites in Nakai Nam Theun National Protected Area (NNT NPA), central eastern Laos. At each site, I walked transects and recorded douc groups sighted, and signs of threats. I used both Distance Sampling and a habitat suitability model to estimate the abundance and distribution of red-shanked doucs (Pygathrix nemaeus) in NNT NPA.

Afrothismia

The main hypothesis of this study was to understand the species composition, ecology, distribution and diversity of Thismiaceae in Cameroon in different habitats, and to formulate new models on how to study this group of plants in other countries. This study will lead to the revision of Thismiaceae in Africa and the Flora of Thismiaceae of Cameroon.

chimpanzee

Chimpanzees of the Budongo Forest, Uganda, suffer from a loss of their primary source of sodium, the palm tree Raphia farinifera, due to the over utilization of this species by local tobacco farmers. They now use another source, Cleistopholis patens. We are working to conserve Raphia and re-educate farmers to switch to cotton string.
