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.

Spinner dolphins

Dolphin watching tourism at Lovina, Bali developed from the late 1980s when local artisanal fishers formed self-regulating cooperatives. Up to 180 dedicated small fishing vessels carry passengers to watch dolphins that are predictably found close to shore. The operation largely caters for Western tourists, mostly tertiary-educated. This research examined the sustainability status of dolphin watching in Lovina from ecological, social, economic and ...

Fiji Petrel

The Fiji Petrel is one of the world’s rarest seabirds whose continued existence was only confirmed in 1984 with the first ever at-sea photographs taken in 2009. Currently NatureFiji-MareqetiViti is building the conservation management capacity of a cadre of local community members by focusing on the Collared Petrel as a surrogate species until such time as it can be applied to Fiji Petrel.

Caecilian

On the Osa Peninsula there are two poorly known amphibian species, the caecilian Oscaecilia osae, endemic species of the area and the frog Craugastor taurus, only known from the southeast part of Costa Rican and southwest Panama. Our project was focused on search for these secretive amphibian species. Neither of the target species was detected, however valuable information of leaf litter amphibian community was produce.

Snow leopard

The endangered snow leopard (Panthera uncia) is among the least known big cat. Using refined non-invasive genetic techniques, we conducted surveys in areas lacking information on population size or structure, and assessed genetic variation across large sections of leopard range in Central Asia. We trained range-country biologists and helped build the capacity of wildlife genetics laboratories in Nepal and Bhutan.
