Red-capped Mangabey

The Red-capped mangabey is a strikingly attractive primate found from Nigeria to Gabon. It is Vulnerable, and under most threat in Nigeria where the vast human population is placing increasing pressure through demand for bushmeat and timber. CERCOPAN's operation is reducing both hunting and logging in community forests in SE Nigeria, with plans for reintroduction of the species into protected forest.

Tiger shark

Within Australian waters, biological and historical catch analysis of tiger sharks (Galeocerdo cuvier) remains data deficient, and there is urgent need of appropriate conservation and management arrangements to be developed for the species. The aim of this research is to examine the life history, ecology and population structure of tiger sharks in east coast Australian and broader South Pacific waters.

Black rhino

Yearly percentage of females calving is the best fitting function of Plant Available Nutrient (PAN) and Moisture (PAM) in predicting black rhino population performance. Low PAN, high PAM areas yield maximum reproductive returns while high PAN, high PAM areas yield the converse for black rhino. This study contributes to selection criteria for areas that yield maximum reproductive returns for black rhinos insitu.

Asian Great Bustard

The Great Bustard (Otis tarda) is a steppe-dwelling bird and the heaviest bird capable of flight. The objectives of our project are to locate remnant populations of Great Bustard, quantify habitat use, trace migratory patterns, and identify sources of mortality, while building local research capacity and engaging local people in the research and conservation of this charismatic species.

William's Lark

This study was to undertake population survey and environmental threat assessment of Williams’ Lark, Mirafra williamsi, in and around Shaba National Reserve IBA. Specific objectives were to investigate the population parameters; size and local density, and environmental conditions in the reserve. The research was conducted at rocky lava plains with scattered grasses in Shaba reserve and its environs.

Grenada Dove

The Grenada Dove is listed as an A1 Globally Critically Endangered Species due to its extremely small and fragmented population which has declined primarily due to habitat loss, estimated at 136 individuals (Rusk 2008). Its habitat is limited to 2 areas on Grenada. This project aims to gather breeding and nesting data to inform conservation and management decisions by the Government of Grenada.

Barbary Macaque

This cross-disciplinary conservation project focuses on the Barbary macaque (Macaca sylvanus) as a flagship species for the threatened flora, fauna and fungi of the unique and diverse ecosystems of northern Morocco. The project works with local people to gather scientific data and raise their awareness so they can work to safeguard the species, its habitats, and their own livelihoods.

Cauca guan

Cauca Guan is a threatened endemic species to Colombia with only four population centers confirmed. This project aims 1) to design and implement participative, sustainable and effective surveillance programs at two localities and 2) to assessed population status at one of the unevaluated localities.

Hawksbill Turtle

This project aims to identify regionally-important turtle populations and threats to their survival and to increase the capacity of coastal communities in the Comoros, Northern Madagascar and Mauritius to protect sea turtles and develop sustainable livelihoods such as sea turtle-based ecotourism.

Commerson´s dolphin

We identified the boundaries for management units for four key species in the Argentine Sea affected by human activities (mortality in fisheries, unregulated tourism and oil and gas exploration at sea): Commerson´s dolphin, dusky dolphin, South American fur seal and South American sea lion. The Southwestern Atlantic has been one of the most impacted marine environments in the last two decades by fisheries.
