Turner's Eremomela

We surveyed Turner's Eremomela and other birds on the more disturbed western end of South Nandi forest, Kenya and sampled birds just outside forest to assess how far forest birds disperse towards neighbouring Kakamega forest. Results showed lower T. Eremomela records, lower overall bird diversity and species richness, and lower general habitat quality on this side, but higher higher human-disturbance than on the eastern side of forest. Only large ...

Javan slow loris

The result obtained by the population survey in the 7 sites estimated occurance in range of the 10-15 individuals. The survey results recommended two potential sites which have good habitat and carrying capacity for the release of Javan slow loris and Calobak, Tapos. Awareness public activities to find solutions to prevent the decline in current population of Java slow loris with law enforcement activities.

Catechu

The management of species depends upon the adopted management system for a particular forest and the role of gender or the forest user groups involvement in the proper handling of the adopted management system. Thus, if totally protected management system adopted for any threatened/vulnerable species and its proper regulation by the user groups then definitely results in increase in no.of species.

Sanje mangabey

Our study examines gastrointestinal parasitic infection in a population of endangered Sanje mangabeys in the Udzungwa Scarp Forest Reserve, Tanzania. Through primate censuses and fecal collection, we document infection prevalence in relation to human encroachment and habitat destruction. As there are fewer than 1000 individuals left in this population, assessing the risk of disease infection is a necessary step for effective conservation.

Egyptian vulture

Project aimed for conservation the Imperial Eagle, Egyptian Vulture and Lesser Kestrel in Azerbaijan throughout creation of network of local people for conservation of main sites for these species. Posters and brochure about target species will be distributed during field survey and discussions.Received data will be used for identification most improptant sites for these species and possible creating of new protected areas.

Turks Island Boa

Prior to our studies which began in 2007, almost nothing was known about the ecology or status of the Turks Island Boa (Epicrates c. chrysogaster). We have since initiated a long-term study of these snakes in the Turks and Caicos. We have captured over 350 individuals from 5 islands and published three scientific articles and one book chapter from this work.

Grevy's zebra

The aims of this project were to (1) understand the factors influencing foal survival in the endangered Grevy's zebra, and (2) investigate how landscape use patterns of lactating female zebra are influenced by differences in forage quality. We discovered that first year foal survival is less than 30% and that lactating females choose areas in which forage contains significantly higher quantities of key nutrients.

Anegada Iguana

Program focus is on species ranked Critically Endangered by the IUCN Red List, including the Anegada iguana (Cyclura pinguis). The geographic range of C. pinguis is the tiny island of Anegada (39 km2) in the British Virgin Islands (BVI). Unfortunately, the tropical dry forest habitat of Anegada is one of the most threatened forest types in the world.
