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.

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.

Siamese Crocodile

The study was conducted at Kaeng Krachan National Park , protected area along the Thai-Myanmar border from 2009-2011. Our objectives were to assess the conservation status of C. siamensis populations within the park, determine if reproduction is occurring, and develop conservation recommendations based on these findings.We recommend implementing multiple strategies to augment the existing population of C. siamensis in the park.
