Bonobo

We have had a three year project to survey the biodiversity of the the region south of Kisangani and between the three rivers :Tshuapa-Lomami-Lualaba in the Democratic Republic of Congo, Africa. Subsequent to our discovery of important populations of bonobo (Pan paniscus) that were being hunted, we have worked to control hunting and create a protected area. This project supports this effort.

Geoffroy's Woolly Monkey

In accordance with IUCN Red List, Lagothrix cana is listed as Endangered, given that at least a 50% of its population has declined in the last 45 years. We intend to determine the conservation status of the species in two conservation units in the Amazon basin, assessing the human impact as its threat and providing conservational education to local population.

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.
