Sahona

Two of the most threatened frog species of Madagascar, Boophis williamsii and Mantidactylus pauliani are very localised, with no more than three spots where they have been found. During a survey we noticed that almost all the exotic forest was burned. This could have a serious consequence on the frog subsistence, and could lead the species to extinction.

Scaly-sided Merganser

Saving of endangered Scaly-sided Merganser a fish-eating wood duck, an endemic for far east Russia and NE China is a main goal of the project. Nest box program provided up to 120 ducklings to hatch annually. Surveys on breeding grounds are lasting for 10 years and made a baseline for population trend.

Reptiles

The Red List status of 365 reptile species was assessed during a workshop in Antananarivo, Madagascar (24 to 28 January 2011). It was attended by four IUCN facilitators, four overseas experts, 15 participants based in Madagascar, including three members of the IUCN/SSC Chameleon Specialist Group.

Jamaican iguana

The Jamaican iguana was feared extinct until a remnant population was discovered in 1990. Since that time the Jamaican Iguana Recovery Group has actively pursued a conservation programme geared toward averting short-term extinction and ensuring the long-term persistence of the species. Focused conservation efforts such as our headstart-release and predator control programmes have resulted in a 3-fold increase in the number of nesting female ...

Lesser long-nosed bat

Creating a long-term conservation strategy for lesser long-nosed bats throughout Mexico and the US requires: increasing our knowledge of lesser long-nosed bat populations and migration; species conservation training biologists, managers and students; monitoring roosts; and incorporating “citizen scientist” observations. We seek a better understanding of population status and trends as well as the dynamics of migratory corridors and ...

Brown howler monkeys

This project is aimed at assessing the current population status and the main threats affecting a small and poorly known population of brown howler monkeys in the Atlantic Forest of Northeastern Argentina, after a yellow fever epidemics occurred in 2008-2009. The information gathered will be used to develop an effective conservation strategy for the species in this region.

Saiga antelope

The project builds capacity for saiga conservation throughout its range, through supporting 3 activites: a) Participatory monitoring of saigas by local farmers in the North-West Pre-Caspian Region of Russia; b) Publication of a biannual bulletin, Saiga News, in 6 languages, online and in hard copy; c) a Small Grants programme to support grassroots conservation action by range state nationals.

Scalloped hammerhead shark

The Malpelo Island, declared World Heritage Site, represent for numerous pelagic species a huge aggregation place for cleaning, feeding, mating and resting in their Pacific migration routes. The main objective of the project is to determine movements and migratory patterns of Hammerhead shark, Sphyrna lewini, with acoustic telemetry, a valuable tool to understand the ecology and distribution of sharks.

Clarke's Weaver

Three years back MBZ (2011) kindly funded a research to discover the breeding site of Clarke's Weaver to Nature Kenya, the Birdlife partner in Kenya. The nest had not been found by the time the grant closed. But the systems that were set up as a result of the grant have finally borne fruit, NESTS WERE FOUND. Many thanks indeed for your support.

Siberian Crane

Illegal hunting is the primary cause of the decline of the Critically Endangered Siberian Crane. This project promoted widespread public education to hunters in Central Asian countries to improve understanding and protection of Siberian Cranes and their habitats. Relationships were fostered with hunters, who are inspired by the cranes’ beauty and plight, correctly identify the species, choose to avoid hunting cranes, and report sightings.
