King Cobra

The King Cobra Telemetry Project was started in March 2008 at the Agumbe Rainforest Research Station in Karnataka, India. The main objectives of the project are to study the ranging patterns, habitat use and behavior of wild king cobras. Emphasis is also given on training young field biologists, creating awareness and educating people about the conservation significance of this apex predator.

Rainbow Canyon Frog

The study is aimed to unveil aspects of life history traits of some of the most peculiar amphibians of the Isalo Massif. southern-central Madagascar. In particular, the rainbow frog, Scaphiophryne gottlebei, is much underknown in terms of its biology, since it is fossorial for most of its life. The project includes radiotracking and populations studies, also useful for defining conservation strategies.

Amur Tiger

Amur tigers and people must find a way to co-exist in the RFE. GPS collar technology enables researchers to gain insights into predator-prey dynamics and help resolve some of these conflicts in a scientific manner. Our research intends to apply this technology to assess kill rates on ungulate species throughout the year, contributing to conservation of one of the world’s most threatened and iconic species.

Hirola Antelope

Since 2009, we have been investigating the ecological relations between the globally-endangered hirola antelope (Beatragus hunteri), Somali pastoralists, and their livestock in Ijara and Fafi Districts, Kenya. Unlike many globally-endangered species, the range of hirola occurs entirely outside of formally-protected areas; thus, their fate hinges on our ability to educate and instill tolerance in Somali pastoralists whose livestock co-occur and ...
