Geoffroy's Woolly Monkey

In accordance with IUCN Red List, Lagothrix cana is listed as Endangered, given that at least a 50% of its population has declined in the last 45 years. We intend to determine the conservation status of the species in two conservation units in the Amazon basin, assessing the human impact as its threat and providing conservational education to local population.

Ludwig's Bustard

Ludwig’s Bustard is a poorly known bird that is under threat from a single source of anthropogenic mortality – collision with overhead power lines. Our project aims to find out more about the impacts of collisions on this long lived species, and investigate ways to mitigate them through censuses, mortality surveys, satellite tracking, line marking experimentation and studying the visual capacity of collision prone species.

Southern Muriqui

This project main objective is to start mapping the distribution and determine the conservation status of the extant wild populations of the endangered southern muriqui (Brachyteles arachnoides), in the Atlantic forest remnants of Sao Paulo State, Brazil. São Paulo State harbors the most significant remnants of the Biome which the subjects study´s species is endemic.

Himalayan Wolf

This was the first project on the wolves in the Himalayan region of India. The main objectives were to gather the information about the status, distribution, conflict with human due to livestock predation and, further, identify the important areas for wolf conservation.

Marbled cat

There is little known about the status or ecology of marbled cats, Asiatic golden cats, or clouded leopards in Sumatra; but extensive habitat degradation is though to be causing significant population declines. We are using camera trapping techniques to assess the current population of the felids in one national park and to identify critical habitat for the implementation of conservation initiatives.
