Boelen's python

Boelen’s python (Morelia boeleni) is endemic to New Guinea found in highlands above 1000 m and below the tree line. Our recent work on the conservation genetics of this species, the first ever genetic survey of this species, shows that all captive and wild M. boeleni are genetically uniform and raise particular concern for the limited genetic diversity of M. boeleni used captive breeding programs.

Snapdragon

Snapdragons (Antirrhinum) form an emblematic group of 25 plant species mainly distributed in the western mediterranean region. Antirrhinum martenii and A. valentinum are two rare and threatened species of this genus. Our objectives are: to conduct exhaustive searchs of the two species in their distribution area; to analyze the genetic diversity of A. valentinum populations; to assess the conservation status of the two species

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.
