Ecology and Conservation of Pampas’ Grassland BirdsThe specific objectives are: 1) to determine grassland bird community composition in altered and undisturbed grassland habitats; 2) to identify species-habitat associations for grassland birds; and 3) to determine differences in nesting success among habitats for species that occur in different altered and undisturbed grasslands types. Research activities will be coupled with a educational campaign aimed to increase public awareness in the study areas.
Pampas Meadowlark: Using a Flagship Species to Promote Conservation in the South American GrasslandsThe project aims are to determine the Pampas Meadowlark’s precise area of occupancy and population size, start a study of the population dynamics of this species, and to promote grassland conservation among local communities through a comprehensive public awareness campaign.
Pampas Meadowlark: Using a Flagship Species to Promote Conservation in the South American GrasslandsThis project focuses on the Pampas Meadowlark, a globally threatened bird. Proposed activities will combine research (population monitoring, colour banding, habitat management) and outreach work to strengthen conservation outputs derived from previous phases of the project.

Pilot Programme for Ecosystemic Monitoring in Cerro Verde (Uruguay): Benthic Invertebrates as a Tool for ConservationIn the first step of the project, we gather abundant quantitative data on species abundance, distribution, and temporal variation at the intertidal and subtidal rocky platforms.
The Blue Mussel Fishery in Punta del Este – Exploring Co-Management Practices and Strategies for the Control of Invasive SpeciesThe project aims to the conservation of mussel beds and associtaed biodiversity, via the control of and invasive species and the exploration of new avenues for the managemnet of the artisanal fishery.
Pilot Programme for Ecosystemic Monitoring in Cerro Verde (Uruguay): Benthic Invertebrates as a Tool for Conservation - Phase IIIn the first step of the project, we gather abundant quantitative data on species abundance, distribution, and temporal variation at the intertidal and subtidal rocky platforms.
Arachnids of Uruguay: From Fear to Knowledge and ConservationThe ai of the project is to implement an educational program to create consciousness on the importance of preserving arachnids and their natural ecosystems in Uruguay.
Incidental Capture of Franciscana Dolphins in Artisanal and Trawling Fisheries in UruguayThis proposal consists of making a survey of the artisanal fisheries of the Uruguayan coast with the aim of determining those with greater interaction and direct the efforts of systematic monitoring to them.
Fisheries Interaction and Contribution to Stock Determination of Franciscana in Uruguayan WatersThe main aim of this project is to determine areas of importance for franciscana dolphin along Uruguayan coastal waters by assessing the impact of fishery interaction with the species, involving fishermen and related actors actively as well as by obtaining information on genetic population structure and feeding ecology.
Ethnobotany to the Conservation in the Protected Area "Quebradas del Norte-Regional ParkWe propose to describe and systematize the ethnobotanical knowledge of communities living in and nearby the protected area “Quebradas del Norte-Regional Park”, Rivera, Uruguay.
Assessment of the E-Trade Scale on Capuchin Monkeys and Other Primates, in Latin AmericaThe aim of the project is to assess the scale of the primate internet trade in these countries, to alert the authorities, media and public, for them to deal and combat this illegal trade on native primates in Latin America.
Threatened Birds Conservation in Grassland HabitatThe main objective of this project is to provide long-term, effective conservation of one important grassland area in Paysandú, through the involvement of the local community.
Yellow Cardinal (Gubernatix cristata) and other Threatened Grassland Birds Conservation in UruguayThe Yellow Cardinal is a endangered bird, the most significant threat is cagebird and the afforestation, is necessary research and environmental education for your conservation.
Conservation and Research in a High-Priority Feeding Area of Juveniles Green Turtle in the South Western AtlanticThis project aims to assess the nutritional dependent of juvenile green turtles and characterize the benthic macroalgae community in two marine protected areas of Uruguay. In addition, collaborated with MPAs workers and promote the sustainable ecotourism in these areas.
Biodiversity Conservation and Land Use Management in the Pampas GrasslandsThe project aims to evaluate the trade-offs between conservation and agricultural production in different land uses in the Pampas grasslands.
Species Richness and Conservation Status of Medium and Large Mammal Populations in the Protected Area Quebrada de los Cuervos, UruguayThis project aims to estimate the species richness of medium and large mammals and run an environmental education program in the educational department of the city of Treinta y Tres and in the visitor's center located in the protected area itself.
Study of the Impacts Generated by National Routes in the Mammal Populations in UruguayThis project aims to assess the impact of roads on mammal populations in eastern Uruguay and generate a monitoring network with schools
The Effect of Habitat and Landscape Characteristics on Mammal Species Richness, Composition and Distribution in a Fragmented LandscapeThis study describes how mammals respond to different local and landscape characteristics in a human-managed landscape in northeastern Uruguay.
Assessment of the Conservation Status of Montevideo Red Belly Toads (Melanophryniscus montevidensis) in UruguayThe goal of this project is to determine the conservation status of the Montevideo red belly toads in Uruguay in order to contribute to the development of an effective management plan for the conservation of this endemic species and its natural habitat.
Ecology and Conservation of Avian Communities in Native Habitats and Afforested Environments in the Northern Campos Grasslands of UruguayDetermine avian community parameters including species diversity, abundance and composition in native habitat types and timber plantations from different ages and management regimes at study site; quantify vegetation structure at bird sample points and determine bird-habitat relationships in native habitat types and managed forests; and provide management recommendations for conservation of avian biodiversity in afforested landscapes.
Developing a Baseline for Amphibian Monitoring through Acoustic Surveys in Uruguay, South AmericaThe aim of the project is to conduct acoustic surveys throughout Uruguay to fill in gaps in information about anuran diversity, which will then be transferred to the community, promoting its involvement in conservation.
Research and Involvement of Local Communities to Ensure Threats Reduction to Sea Turtles at the Foraging Ground of Cerro Verde MPAThis project aims to establish the main causes of sea turtles mortality and raise awareness within the MPA´s key actors in order to involve them in conservation efforts.
Swans of Uruguay, Contributing to the Conservation of the Protected Area ‘ Laguna de Rocha’This project will allow us to identify the most important feeding areas of the Laguna De Rocha and explain how the feeding habitats affect the distribution of Black-necked Swan and the Coscoroba Swan.
Multi-Scale Analysis to Predict Local Mammal Species Richness and Composition in a Human Dominated Landscape in Rivera UruguayTo determine land-use changes in Rivera, Uruguay, where the most important land-use change has been exotic tree plantations establishment. Determine mammal species richness and composition in native forest, grassland and exotic tree plantation and determine which habitat and landscape variables are the best predictors of local species richness.
