Javan Hawk Eagle

Locality records of Javan Hawk –Eagle (Spizaetus bartelsi) are not only in conservation area but also recorded in non-conservation area. One of the area is on forested area along Pekalongan Regency. From the survey, the Javan Hawk-Eagle is recorded in four locations are: Jolotigo, Tinalum, Linggoasri and Mendolo. Number populations of JHE in the areas estimated approximately on 9-11 individuals or 3-4 pairs.

The Terrible hairy fly

Of the approximately 150,000 described species of flies, the "terrible hairy fly", Mormotomyia hirsuta, is considered to be the world's rarest, known from a single hill in eastern Kenya. Discovered in 1933 it was last seen in 1948 until rediscovered in late 2010. Our project aims to explore for other potential Mormotomyia sites and to study its biology and molecular genetics.

aspília

The phenological study Aspilia grazielae was instrumental in the establishment of a strategic plan for conservation of the species. Since we now know the reproductive pattern of the species will be possible to implement a program that has as main purpose contributing to the conservation of sites where the species occurs, as well as the relocation of individuals obtained from seeds extracted in preserved areas.

Black-legged Burrowing Scorpion

The southern African burrowing scorpion genus Opistophthalmus includes the world’s most threatened scorpions. Five species endemic to the Western Cape Province of South Africa (Opistophthalmus fuscipes, O. intermedius, O. latro, O. leipoldti and O. capensis) are particularly at risk. This project aims to survey the known distributions of these scorpions, identify remaining wild populations, and collect samples from each for genetic ...

ibiribá-rana

The goal of our project is to determine the conservation status of the 20 native species of the Brazil nut family (Lecythidaceae) in the Atlantic coastal forest of Brazil. Ten of those species are rare and in danger of extinction. We are now analyzing the collection localities of the rare species to determine how near to suitable habitat individuals of the species are located.

Deep water acropora

FFI and partners will conduct review of status, distribution, exploitation and threats of key coral species (IUCN: endangered) within Tejakula sub-district in Bali, Indonesia. We will reaise community awareness in Tejakula of coral conservation particularly among ornamental fishers, with key species as flagships. We will communicate information on key coral species and reef condition to inform Locally Managed Marine Area planning.

Lungless salamander

FFI's ultimate goal is to empower local stakeholders to conserve Ometepe Island's endemic salamander (Bolitoglossa insularis) and its cloud forest habitat. The project goal is to enhance knowledge and capacity to enable immediate conservation action to project this salamander (IUCN: not listed). We will establish essential baseline data to evaluate conservation status, build a participatory monitoring system and share project knowledge gained ...

Radiated tortoise

Surveys in southern Madagascar for Critically Endangered Radiated Tortoises (Astrochelys radiata). We estimate a total of 55 tortoises over 5.19 km2, with a 1.83:1 males-to-female ratio. We emphasise the need for additional tortoise studies, particularly in the unstudied area of Conservation Zone of Ifotaka-North Protected Area, and review tortoise conservation efforts in southern Madagascar

Horvath's toad-headed agama

Two species of lizards Phrynocephalus horvathi and Eremias pleskei listed in IUCN Red List as Critically Endangered and one species of tortoises Testuo graeca listed as Vulnerable inhabit ecosystems of the semi-deserts of Ararat Valley which most threatened due to restricted territory and overpopulation. This project is aimed at getting the first-hand knowledge on distribution and abundance these reptiles.
