White-lipped peccary

The project evaluates how the ecology and movements of the threatened white-lipped peccaries are being affected by fragmentation of habitats in the Pantanal’s plateau and floodplain regions. By comparing high and low cattle-impacted sites, we will identify biodiversity losses, identify ecological corridors between the Pantanal highlands and basin, and promote sustainable cattle ranching practices to prevent further deforestation.

Nigerian Chimpanzee

The aim of the Nigerian Montane Forest Project is to : combine scientific research with education at both tertiary and local community level in order to develop long term sustainable management of Nigeria’s montane forests. We achieve this through the running of an ecological research station which attracts national and international researchers and is run largely through the local community.

Madagascar Pochard

This long-term project will save the Madagascar pochard from the brink of extinction. Just 20 individuals remain in the wild, restricted to one location. A captive-breeding and a research programme have been established. Working with local communities, birds will be released within the species’ former range. The project will also serve to encourage wider conservation of Malagasy wetlands for the benefit of people and wildlife.

Egyptian Vulture

Through expeditions in collaboration with local partners, the project aims to determine the population number and threats for the migrating population of the Egyptian Vultures from the Palearctic in their main wintering areas in East Africa, to create human capacity and ensure proper design of the future conservation activities.

Indian Elephant

Invasive exotic species pose an enormous threat to the world‟s biological diversity. Exotic plant invasions can have negative effects on native flora, which can be in turn detrimental to herbivores that depend on native vegetation. In this project, I examined the association of an exotic invasive weed, Lantana camara with Asian elephants its food resources, habitat use and feeding behaviour in Mudumalai Tiger Reserve, India.

Azuero Howling Monkey

The Fundación Pro-Conservación de los Primates Panameños (FCPP) started in 2001 the first long-term primates population study to obtain ecological information of Ateles geoffroyi azuerensis, Alouatta coibensis coibensis and Alouatta coibensis trabeata. This is the first ever recorded data to calculate their total population and their actual conservation status. Environmental education practices are operating in Azuero Peninsula to help ...
