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.

Depik

Rasbora tawarensis or locally known as depik are freshwater fishes endemic&threatened in Lake Laut Tawar, Aceh, Indonesia. The fish has been listed in IUCN red list in vulnerable category& updated by CBSG as critically endangered. The fish also the most commercially important by-catch for native fish species in the lake. Based on initial evaluation this species are very important freshwater fishes in Aceh waters.

Scalloped Hammerhead Shark

This project seeks to foster the conservation of hammerhead shark (Sphyrna lewini) in the Pacific of Costa Rica. We will awareness the Tarcoles community about the importance of this shark and their nursery areas. We choose this community because exists a nursery area of S. lewini, an endangered species (IUCN Red List). Nursery areas are critical habitats since bring alimentation and protection for juveniles.

Lake Junin Frog

General concern on amphibian’s present situation is not only based on the decline of its species. It is necessary to know more about the threats they are facing to establish successful conservation programs. Lake of Junin frog lacks of that information. The present study shows the different human’s related factors affecting this frog and come up with recommendations for future SMART strategies for the species

Striped hyena

To adapt a new, non-invasive and cost-effective footprint identification technique (FIT) for monitoring the elusive and endangered striped hyena in Turkey. This beautiful animal is widely persecuted and there are no comprehensive population monitoring strategies. FIT is a species-specific monitoring tool developed by WildTrack (www.wildtrack.org)and can give high accuracy in identifying at the species, individual, age-class and sex levels.

Southern Ground Hornbill

The Project Mission is to reverse the decline of the Southern Ground Hornbill (SGH) (Bucorvus leadbeateri) population in Africa by 2020, and start a population data collection on the Northern Ground Hornbill (NGH) (Bucorvus abyssinicus).

African Lion

Preventing conflicts with lions is possible. APW's Living Walls project is an important example of how people, cattle and lions can all be kept safe. Using a unique combination of chain link fencing and live trees as fence posts, these special enclosures keep cattle safe from lions and lions out of the way of Maasai spears!
