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. 172517172) - Pig-nosed turtle - Awarded $8,500 on December 19, 2017
19-12-2017 - Pig-nosed turtle

The pig-nosed turtle (Carettochelys insculpta) is frequently harvested by subsistence communities and trafficked through Asia. This research project is developing genetic wildlife forensic techniques to help combat the illegal trade and providing sustainability and environmental education to remote communities in New Guinea that harvest the turtles.

The Bica Anole (Norops (Anolis) bicaorum) is a poorly studied lizard species endemic to the Island of Utila, off the Caribbean side of Honduras, Central America. Our project aimed to address conservation concerns relating to populations, whilst collecting additional data and information on the distribution, abundance, morphology, behavior and ecology of this species.

Mohamed bin Zayed Species Conservation (Project No. 170515264) - Sancti Spiritus Trope - Awarded $4,000 on May 01, 2017
01-05-2017 - Sancti Spiritus Trope

Cuba is the center of diversification of the colorful dwarf boas’ genus Tropidophis, harboring 60% of all West Indian species. Many have restricted distribution ranges and are subjected to serious threats like habitat loss and intentional killing. The aim of this project is to provide updated baseline information on the ecology, distribution, and conservation status of the dwarf boas inhabiting the Guamuhaya Massif, central Cuba.
