Radiated tortoise

Surveys in southern Madagascar for Critically Endangered Radiated Tortoises (Astrochelys radiata). We estimate a total of 55 tortoises over 5.19 km2, with a 1.83:1 males-to-female ratio. We emphasise the need for additional tortoise studies, particularly in the unstudied area of Conservation Zone of Ifotaka-North Protected Area, and review tortoise conservation efforts in southern Madagascar

Horvath's toad-headed agama

Two species of lizards Phrynocephalus horvathi and Eremias pleskei listed in IUCN Red List as Critically Endangered and one species of tortoises Testuo graeca listed as Vulnerable inhabit ecosystems of the semi-deserts of Ararat Valley which most threatened due to restricted territory and overpopulation. This project is aimed at getting the first-hand knowledge on distribution and abundance these reptiles.

Gulella taitensis

The current findings indicate that Gulella taitensis, endemic to Taita hills forest is still endangered and requires conservation measures initiated. Thapsia buraensis and Ziingis radiolata endangered and endemic in Taita Hills have become more threatened since neither dead shell or a live snail of these two species was recorded during this study.

Kamakahala

The grant we received from the Fund has allowed staff of the Plant Extinction Prevention Program to visit the four remaining individuals of Labordia lorenciana multiple times. During those visits, we have protected the plants from insect threats, hand pollinated the only remaining female plant, and collected seeds that were then germinated and grown at a cooperating botanical garden.

Giant Ibis

Giant Ibis, Thaumatibis gigantea, and White-shouldered Ibis, Pseudibis davisoni, are Critically Endangered species now almost entirely confined to dry forests of north and east Cambodia. The main reason for the decline of these large water bird species is habitat destruction. Saving the species from extinction require more participation from local communities. In Western Siem Pang of Cambodia, BirdLife International Cambodia Programme ...

Siberian, or Amur tigr

Amur tigers and people must find a way to co-exist in the RFE. GPS collar technology enables researchers to gain insights into predator-prey dynamics and help resolve some of these conflicts in a scientific manner. Our research applies this technology to assess energetic demands and kill-rates of ungulate species throughout the year, contributing to conservation of one of the world’s most threatened and iconic species.

Red-crowned roofed turtle

Turtles are one of the least studied species in Nepal regarding their ecology, habitat, distribution and threats. The conservation of such species largely depends on their occurrence within protected areas or on the importance given at national level. This project aims to assess the status and threats facing Critically Endangered Red-crowned Roofed turtle in an area which connects two protected areas across Nepal and India.
