Bengal Florican

The Bengal Florican Houbaropsis bengalensis is a Critically Endangered bird reliant on remnant alluvial grasslands in Cambodia, northeast India and Nepal. >60% of the world population are found in Cambodia where WCS are supporting traditional agricultural practices that maintain suitable grassland habitat for the florican. Through forming and training community management committees threats to grassland habitat in Bengal Florican Conservation ...

Praying mantis

This project aimed to confirm the presence of some rare mediterranean mantids and divulgate conservation problems regarding invertebrates. In 2011 living populations of Apteromantis bolivari and Tenodera rungsi were encountered and recorded in North Morocco. Data collected confirmed old records and gave important information on conservation and priorities about these insects leading to scientific publications and a divulgative documentary is also ...

Mantequero

Magnolia cubensis subsp. acunae species and Podocarpus angustifolius are scattered in the montane rainforests of the Guamuhaya range. Nowadays, most of their habitats are devoted to coffee plantations. These rainforests have a major role capturing the rain and the humidity from the clouds, and controlling soil erosion, runoff and flooding. The rainforest restoration is also essential for the economic welfare in the region.

Arabian leopard

This project was designed to establish the existence of previously unknown, but suspected leopard populations in Yemen and corridors between them and the population that we have already documented in the Hawf Protected Area. Due to serious security issues in Yemen, we have instead been continually monitoring the exceptional biodiversity in Hawf Forest and made numerous important discoveries with regional and global conservation significance.

Pelahlar

The giant tree Dipterocarpus littoralis is restricted only to Nusakambangan Island in Central Java. It has been categorized as critically endangered by IUCN since 1997 and included nationally on list of priority species for 2008-2018 Indonesia conservation action. This project aims to measure the distribution, population size and structure as well as environmental conditions that influence the presence and density of D. littoralis.

Humphead Wrasse

Reef fish spawning aggregations are predictable in space and time and therefore provide an opportunity for local fishers to easily catch large numbers of reproductively active fish, endangering the future sustainability of coral reef fisheries. This work aims conduct artisanal fishery assessments and promote long-term sustainability of local marine resources using the Humphead Wrasse as flagship species on Kia Island, Fiji.

African Elephant

Babile Elephant Sanctuary is one of the protected areas in the country established to protect the only viable elephant population in the Horn of Africa. Despite the establishment of the Sanctuary in 1970, their range of distribution has shrunk considerably. As a result of mass influx of a large number of farmers and their livestock from the east and north, the home range of elephants of Babile has shrunk by about 65.5 percent since 1976. ...

Lauan Ground Skink

Nothing has been learned about the Ono-I-Lau Skink (Leiolopisma alazon)since its discovery in 1982. It was known from one very small islet in a very distant part of Fiji. Whether the species is extinct is not even known. This project will determine the current status of this species and determine conservation priorities for the species if found to still exist in the wild.
