Western black crested gibbon

One of the project’s goals is to identify priority actions with local stakeholders to protect the Western black crested gibbon at Nam Kan National Protected Area. In addition, Fauna & Flora International supported preparation of a national gibbon conservation action plan for Lao PDR with the western black crested gibbon as one of the priority species for the country.

Fruit and nut plants

This project’s goal is to conserve threatened tree species of the fruit and nut forests in Childukhtaron, Tajikistan. FFI aims to increase local community knowledge and raise awareness of rare and threatened tree species; build capacity of the local state forest service to recognize and monitor threatened and flagship tree species; and improve the status through propagation in nurseries for later reintroduction into the forest.

Siamese crocodile

This project’s goal is to prevent the extinction of Siamese crocodiles and use this charismatic reptile as a flagship for conserving threatened rivers and wetlands in Cambodia. FFI will gain a better understanding of the status and ecology of key crocodile populations; increase protection of Siamese crocodile sanctuaries; and build awareness to conserve crocodiles and their habitats among NGOs, government agencies and the general public.

Pygmy hippopotamus

The University of Georgia pygmy hippo project aims to assess the conservation biology of this species in the Moa River region of Sierra Leone. We are assessing distribution, abundance, and basic life history using a variety of field techniques. Our team is also undertaking environmental education programs and collaborating with others studying pygmy hippos.

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.
