Congregating fireflies

Very little is known about the fireflies in the Kuala Selangor Nature Park (KSNP). The KSNP lake system is undergoing rehabilitation. These changes may have an impact on the fireflies. The firefly study and habitat mapping will aid in the Park management, where the fireflies can be a bio-indicator. A monitoring program and awareness materials will be developed. KSNP is a Congregating Firefly Zone (MBZSCF:0925338).

Mouse-tailed Dormouse, Roach's

The Mouse-tailed Dormouse is one of the rarest and least known mammal species in Europe. This project gathered data on species ranging behavior, activity and habitat use in European Turkey and Southeastern Bulgaria, using radio-tracking methods for fist time on this species. DNA material was collected for population genetics analysis, and project results were disseminated through publications, presentations and media.

Pear sp.

FFI works to conserve threatened tree species in the Childukhtaron region of Tajikistan. A baseline survey supported by MBZ found sporadic, declining presence of critically endangered pear species, Pyrus tadshikistanica and Pyrus korshinskyi, which are threatened by cutting, over-grazing, harvesting and sapling collection for root stock. This project will conduct a survey, threat analysis and workshops to develop a species conservation action ...

Stitchbird / hihi

Forty-four juvenile hihi, Notiomystis cincta, were reintroduced to Bushy Park in March 2013 in an effort to establish a fourth population of this species on mainland New Zealand (three other populations occur on offshore islands). Despite relatively low initial survival among the females, the remaining birds and their offspring have all bred successfully. The population, although still small, is currently thriving.
