Mary River turtle

In order to increase the population of the endangered Mary River turtle (Elusor macrurus)Tiaro Landcare Group are monitoring key nesting banks in the Mary River, Queensland, Australia. Individual clutches are identified and protected. This will greatly reduce the impact of predators. Our group is working with a PhD candidate from the University of Queensland who is researching the nesting biology of this species.

Atlantic Humpback Dolphin

The Atlantic humpback dolphin is among the planet’s most rare and threatened marine mammals. Endemic to West Africa, the species has declined precipitously in recent years. This project aims to assess essential life history parameters (population size, preferred habitats, threats) for the species in Gabon and Congo, and to raise awareness of the species amongst local resource managers, resource users, and the NGO community.

Western black crested gibbon

One of the project’s goals is to identify priority actions with local stakeholders to protect the Western black crested gibbon at Nam Kan National Protected Area. In addition, Fauna & Flora International supported preparation of a national gibbon conservation action plan for Lao PDR with the western black crested gibbon as one of the priority species for the country.
