The Mohamed bin Zayed Species Conservation Fund has awarded $19,006,574 to 2041 conservation projects for all species types with all IUCN classifications throughout the world. Project managers that have decided to publish their projects, are illustrated on the map below.

Carpita de Morelos

This project assessed the exact distribution of this small Mexican fish species (Carpitade Morelos). It estimated its population size in its current distributional area and evaluated the genetic diversity of the species by means of microsatellite DNA analysis. Finally, a report was authored to assist in the recovery and conservation of the Carpitade Morelos.

Egyptian vulture

Our project aims to protect Aras and Arpacay valleys that host Turkey's 4 species of vultures. We try to understand their breeding, wintering and migration patterns so that we can propose a species action plan for either the protection of the species and their habitats. We use satellite telemetry for tracking Egyptian Vultures which is a globally endangered species.

Andean cat

We contributed to build the Laboratory of Parasitology in the Bolivian Collection of Fauna, by equipping it with laboratory and computer equipment to conduct parasitology analysis, diet estimation and establishing a data base. Our major goal is to establish a Program for studying the trophic and parasitic relationships between high Andean carnivores and their rodent prey, aiming the conservation of the Andean cat and its habitat.

Sumatran rhino

The Sumatran rhino is Critically Endangered; less than 200 individuals remain in the wild. The International Rhino Foundation operates Rhino Protection Units, elite four-person anti-poaching teams, in two of the three main habitats left for Sumatran rhinos. These units, called RPUs, patrol national parks, monitoring rhinos, tigers, elephants and other threatened species, removing snares and traps, and apprehending poachers and encroachers.

Yellow-shouldered parrot

The overall objective of this project is to decrease the extinction risk of the yellow-shouldered parrot by protecting the Margarita Island population in Venezuela. For several years, we have recruited and trained local people to conduct nest monitoring and protection only in one location. With this project we hope to increase the impact of our work by expanding the protection activities to a second site.

Southeastern mountain Taeromys

The goal of this project is to provide all the necessary information for re-evaluating the conservation status of four target mammalian species (Taeromys arcuatus; Taeromys microbullatus Maxomys dollmanni, Rattus salocco) currently listed as Data Deficient by the IUCN and that are believed to inhabit the Eastern part of the Island. https://sites.google.com/site/alessiomortelliti/

White-lipped peccary

The project evaluates how the ecology and movements of the threatened white-lipped peccaries are being affected by fragmentation of habitats in the Pantanal’s plateau and floodplain regions. By comparing high and low cattle-impacted sites, we will identify biodiversity losses, identify ecological corridors between the Pantanal highlands and basin, and promote sustainable cattle ranching practices to prevent further deforestation.

Nigerian Chimpanzee

The aim of the Nigerian Montane Forest Project is to : combine scientific research with education at both tertiary and local community level in order to develop long term sustainable management of Nigeria’s montane forests. We achieve this through the running of an ecological research station which attracts national and international researchers and is run largely through the local community.

Madagascar Pochard

This long-term project will save the Madagascar pochard from the brink of extinction. Just 20 individuals remain in the wild, restricted to one location. A captive-breeding and a research programme have been established. Working with local communities, birds will be released within the species’ former range. The project will also serve to encourage wider conservation of Malagasy wetlands for the benefit of people and wildlife.

Egyptian Vulture

Through expeditions in collaboration with local partners, the project aims to determine the population number and threats for the migrating population of the Egyptian Vultures from the Palearctic in their main wintering areas in East Africa, to create human capacity and ensure proper design of the future conservation activities.
