Turquoise Dwarf Gecko or Electric Blue Gecko

Lygodactylus williamsi is an endemic species of gecko found in Kimboza Forest in Tanzania. The species is not in the government quota but is widely traded in the European and American pet markets. The Wildlife Division and law enforcers such as police and customs do not know the species thus TRAFFIC with support from MBZSCF conducted species identification to help them cover this knowledge gap.

Black-and-white colobus monkey

A population of black-and-white colobus occurs between the Sassandra and the Bandama Rivers in Côte d’Ivoire, the taxonomic status of which is not yet clear. We conducted an extensive survey within this area and found that only one population has survived in a forest grove. This population has a similar coat pattern like Colobus vellerosus, however vocalization data failed to firmly confirm this affinity.

Delacour's langur

The Delacour’s langur (Trachypithecus delacouri) a Critically Endangered and Vietnamese endemic primate counts only 200 individuals in 9 isolated subpopulations. Captive bred individuals from the Endangered Primate Rescue Center were released into Van Long Nature Reserve to stabilize the only viable population and to increase the genetic diversity. The project receives active support from surrounding communes of the reserve.

Malherbe's parakeet

The Malherbe's parakeet (Cyanoramphus malherbi) is the rarest parakeet in New Zealand. Since 2005, a number of small island populations have been established via translocation, but little information is available on their population size at these sites. With support from MBZ the first study on their numbers has been completed, an important step towards a more integral management of the species.

Vancouver Island marmot

The Vancouver Island marmot is a critically endangered ground squirrel endemic to British Columbia, Canada. By 1998, the species consisted of fewer than 100 individuals. Between 2003 and 2010, captive-bred marmots were released to the wild and their locations and survival rates monitored. My research examines release sites to identify characteristics that increased the likelihood of these marmots surviving their first year in the wild.

Southern-central black rhino

This project was to purchase a new 4WD vehicle for the North Luangwa Conservation Programme in Zambia, a joint project of the Zambia Wildlife Authority and the Frankfurt Zoological Society. Black rhinos have been reintroduced to North Luangwa National Park in four phases from 2003-2010, and the ongoing task is to monitor and protect this population. Vehicle support for patrols is essential.

Shoebill

Shoebill is one of the rarest wetland specialist birds of sub-Saharan Africa. Its population in Tanzania is in low hundreds, this project study its ecology in western Tanzania. We look at its habitat selection for foraging, nesting and survey its distribution extent in all suspect sites. We are also interested to study the effect of anthropogenic activities such as fire, grazing and fishing.

Basra Reed Warbler

Basra Reed Warbler (Acrocephalus grisseldis), listed as endangered is facing serious conservation problems with developers planning to transform nearly 50,000 acres of its wintering site (Tana River Delta) into sugarcane plantations, rice and biofuel production. The study aims to establish its population status, evaluate the potential threats affecting their population and possible adoption of economically viable land use practices compatible ...
