White-Bellied Spider Monkey

An recently initiated long-term study on frugivory by Ateles belzebuth will obtain relevant ecological data for the conservation of this endangered species. We intend to get information on food availability and use as well as identify possible predictors of white-bellied spider monkeys abundance. These informations will help to prioritize areas for future management and outline effective conservation strategies to ensure the species' protection.

Long-wattled Umbrellabird

The Long-wattled Umbrellabird is endemic of the Choco bioregion and it is classified as vulnerable. In Colombia its populations have declined because of deforestation and habitat loss in the Chocó bioregion. This makes this species prone to extinction. The aim of this project is to provide information about the current population status at the Farallones National Park and to develop conservation and educational actions.

Pangolin / Cape Pangolin / Ground Pangolin / Steppe Pangolin

This study focusses on the Ground Pangolins (Smutsia temminckii) living in the arid Kalahari Desert of South Africa. Although limited previous studies have been done on Ground Pangolins, this is the first arid-environment study. Through this study we are trying to shed some light on the ecology and physiology of this enigmatic rare and threatened species, and formulate a conservation strategy for its continued existence.

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.

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 ...
