White-shouldered Ibis

The University of East Anglia is investigating the conservation biology of White-shouldered Ibis (Pseudibis davisoni). In this project we are investigating the role of natural vs human predation at ibis nests, and the most effect means of protecting nests. We are employing nest guards and installing nest cameras at nests in Western Siem Pang IBA, Cambodia.

Jamaican Iguana

The Jamaican iguana, Cyclura collei, is represented by a single population in the wild that had near zero recruitment when it was discovered in 1991. A "headstart" program, where hatchlings are collected in the wild and reared in captivity until they are large enough to fend for themselves, has reversed this trend. However, headstarting may have unforeseen consequences. This study is assessing these concerns.
