Red-shanked douc monkey

In 2011-2012, I conducted transect surveys in 10 sites in Nakai Nam Theun National Protected Area (NNT NPA), central eastern Laos. At each site, I walked transects and recorded douc groups sighted, and signs of threats. I used both Distance Sampling and a habitat suitability model to estimate the abundance and distribution of red-shanked doucs (Pygathrix nemaeus) in NNT NPA.

Sagalla Caecilian

The Sagalla Caecilian Boulengerula niedeni is a Critically Endangered (CR)amphibian caecliid endemic to Sagalla Hill, Taita Hills Kenya.

Afrothismia

The main hypothesis of this study was to understand the species composition, ecology, distribution and diversity of Thismiaceae in Cameroon in different habitats, and to formulate new models on how to study this group of plants in other countries. This study will lead to the revision of Thismiaceae in Africa and the Flora of Thismiaceae of Cameroon.

Philippine bare-backed fruit bat

IUCN “Red Lists” the Philippine bare-backed fruit bat as Critically Endangered. Until rediscovery on Cebu Island this species was thought to be extinct until 2003, when bare-backed fruit bats were (re)discovered living in the Philippines. These bats and the Philippine tropical ecosystem are deeply intertwined through seed dispersal and pollination. ...

chimpanzee

Chimpanzees of the Budongo Forest, Uganda, suffer from a loss of their primary source of sodium, the palm tree Raphia farinifera, due to the over utilization of this species by local tobacco farmers. They now use another source, Cleistopholis patens. We are working to conserve Raphia and re-educate farmers to switch to cotton string.

Irrawaddy dolphin

For sometime only one population of Irrawaddy dolphin (Orcaella brevirostris) was known in the Philippines, i.e. the Malampaya Sound population in Palawan (~70-80 animals). In 2007 a very small population was discovered in the Visayas region raising hopes that there might be other remnant populations that are yet to be found. This project investigates occurrence of Irrawaddy dolphins in the country.

Beluga, European or Great Sturgeon

Of six Danube sturgeon species, five are Critically Endangered, with one species already extinct. Illegal harvest and caviar trade are the greatest direct threat to their survival. A compilation of background information, an under-cover market survey in Romania and Bulgaria - the two most relevant countries - and DNA analysis of caviar samples provide strong evidence to initiate determined counteractions by authorities and decision-makers.
