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.

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.

Wedge-tailed eagle

Data from this study suggests that eagles may breed irregularly or may frequently move about within territories occupying various nests. This study also suggests that although the duration of breeding phases may be similar between years, the timing of breeding in the Tasmanian wedge-tailed eagle may vary considerably between years. If these trends continue, they will have implications for future eagle habitat management

Okapi

The Okapi Conservation Project in Epulu, DR Congo conserves the wildlife and flora of the Ituri Forest. Focusing on program areas of agro-forestry, wildlife protection and conservation education, we encourage Congolese people to participate in forest stewardship which is home to important populations of chimpanzees, forest elephants and the endemeic okapi. Current threats to the Ituri Forest include illegal hunting, mining and timber ...

Strong-tailed Oldfield Mouse

The diversity and richness along the altitudinal gradient change depending of the heterogeneity of the habitat. I research the relation of the environmental factors and distribution of the species in seven localities along the gradient of Pampa Hermosa River, Junín, Peru. I report 34 species, the redicovery of Marmosops juninensis and the range extended of Monodelphis gardneri. Also, I found corelation with their habitat.

Liverwort

Sauteria spongiosa (Kashyap) S. Hatt.is an endangered liverwort occuring at 2400 m of elevation in Kathmandu Valley. None of its report has been made since 1982. This work is connected basically to investigate the current status of Sauteria spongiosa and document all the exiating diversity of bryophyte species occuring in different potential habitats of Kathmandu Mountains.
