19-12-2017 - Cinnamodendron corticosum

Cinnamodendron corticosum (Canellaceae) is a popular wild spice tree endemic to Jamaica, reportedly confined to two administrative parishes, and the IUCN Red List classifies the species as "vulnerable.” Considering the species’ assumed small geographic range, local reports of over-harvesting, and published deforestation rates in Jamaica, a systematic in-depth conservation status reassessment, through species-distribution analysis of herbarium ...

Mohamed bin Zayed Species Conservation (Project No. 172517158) - Lesser Antillean Iguana - Awarded $8,150 on December 19, 2017
19-12-2017 - Lesser Antillean Iguana

Given the continued spread of non-native Green Iguana throughout the Lesser Antilles the regional endemic iguana, Lesser Antillean Iguana, is rapidly declining. With recent hybridization now also present on the island of St. Eustatius we are trying to stop this process, catch all non-native iguanas and prevent future invasions to thereby safeguard this populations' future.

Mohamed bin Zayed Species Conservation (Project No. 172515461) - Elkhorn coral - Awarded $12,500 on May 01, 2017
01-05-2017 - Elkhorn coral

The endangered Elkhorn coral is a critical reef building species that provides habitat for marine life, supports fisheries and shelters coasts. Declines of over 90%, however, have reduced populations below reproductive a threshold, with recovery unlikely without intervention. Our project will boost reproductive success by collecting gametes during spawning, fertilizing them in the lab, and growing out larvae and juvenile corals to repopulate ...
