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.

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.

Saiga antelope

This project’s goal is to reduce the drivers for and control illegal hunting of saiga antelope across the Ustyurt Plateau in Uzbekistan and Kazakhstan. FFI aims to better understand migration routes and breeding grounds; raise awareness and engage local communities in saiga conservation; provide technical and resource support to state and local ranger groups to develop and implement an anti-poaching strategy; and foster transboundary ...

Central American River Turtle

This project’s goal is to create a framework for preventing the extinction of the Hicatee Turtle in Belize. FFI aims to determine the population status of the Hicatee Turtle, including its distribution, density, habitat requirements and principal threats in Belize; develop a National Conservation Strategy and Action Plan for the Hicatee Turtle; and establish and strengthen a consortium for the conservation of the Hicatee Turtle.
