Striped hyena

To adapt a new, non-invasive and cost-effective footprint identification technique (FIT) for monitoring the elusive and endangered striped hyena in Turkey. This beautiful animal is widely persecuted and there are no comprehensive population monitoring strategies. FIT is a species-specific monitoring tool developed by WildTrack (www.wildtrack.org)and can give high accuracy in identifying at the species, individual, age-class and sex levels.

African Lion

Preventing conflicts with lions is possible. APW's Living Walls project is an important example of how people, cattle and lions can all be kept safe. Using a unique combination of chain link fencing and live trees as fence posts, these special enclosures keep cattle safe from lions and lions out of the way of Maasai spears!

Northern Rockhopper Penguin

Nightingale's main Rockhopper Penguin rookery was under threat from habitat loss. Seals were encroaching and subsidence created deep pits in which penguins fell and died. This project has provided a simple fence and the pits in which penguins fell were filled in and made safe. The profile of these endangered penguins has been raised. More penguins are surviving as a direct result of this project.
