Siamese Crocodile

The study was conducted at Kaeng Krachan National Park , protected area along the Thai-Myanmar border from 2009-2011. Our objectives were to assess the conservation status of C. siamensis populations within the park, determine if reproduction is occurring, and develop conservation recommendations based on these findings.We recommend implementing multiple strategies to augment the existing population of C. siamensis in the park.

Spinner dolphins

Dolphin watching tourism at Lovina, Bali developed from the late 1980s when local artisanal fishers formed self-regulating cooperatives. Up to 180 dedicated small fishing vessels carry passengers to watch dolphins that are predictably found close to shore. The operation largely caters for Western tourists, mostly tertiary-educated. This research examined the sustainability status of dolphin watching in Lovina from ecological, social, economic and ...

Fiji Petrel

The Fiji Petrel is one of the world’s rarest seabirds whose continued existence was only confirmed in 1984 with the first ever at-sea photographs taken in 2009. Currently NatureFiji-MareqetiViti is building the conservation management capacity of a cadre of local community members by focusing on the Collared Petrel as a surrogate species until such time as it can be applied to Fiji Petrel.

Caecilian

On the Osa Peninsula there are two poorly known amphibian species, the caecilian Oscaecilia osae, endemic species of the area and the frog Craugastor taurus, only known from the southeast part of Costa Rican and southwest Panama. Our project was focused on search for these secretive amphibian species. Neither of the target species was detected, however valuable information of leaf litter amphibian community was produce.

Snow leopard

The endangered snow leopard (Panthera uncia) is among the least known big cat. Using refined non-invasive genetic techniques, we conducted surveys in areas lacking information on population size or structure, and assessed genetic variation across large sections of leopard range in Central Asia. We trained range-country biologists and helped build the capacity of wildlife genetics laboratories in Nepal and Bhutan.

Sumatran rhino

The overarching goal of the proposed project is to advance the effort to save the critically endangered Sumatran rhino from extinction. Our objective within the scope of this grant is to increase the number of Sumatran rhinos contributing genetically to the captive breeding program which serves as an insurance population for the rapidly dwindling wild population.

Heaviside's Dolphin

The Namibian Dolphin Project aims to collect baseline information on dolphins and whales in the coastal waters of Namibia, in southwest Africa. We collect information on Heaviside's dolphins and bottlenose dolphins, to help us protect and manage these populations. We also work closely with local people to teach them more about the value of conserving their local marine biodiversity. Find out more at www.namibiandolphinproject.com.

Javan gibbon

Javan gibbon (Hylobates molloch) which is endemic to Java,Indonesia. This species is heading to extinction due to forest degradation and land conversion for agriculture.A survey of Javan gibbon (Hylobates moloch) was conducted in the Dieng mountains and Mt.Slamet, Central Java, to assess current population status and its distribution, including factors threatening the species.
