Kapany Lemurs Project

This project aims to determine the taxonomic status of the Kapany lemurs, which present an intermediate morphology beetwen Eulemur macaco (the black lemur) and Eulemur flavifrons (the black blue-eyed lemur). This will help to enable the red-listing of this potentially threatened lemur taxon by the IUCN.

Bonobo Conservation and Habitat Protection via the Power of Wildlife Media

The aim of the project is to promote the urgently needed protection of a critically important forest area by producing a training film to increase capacity to monitor bonobos (Pan paniscus) and other endangered species. The other aim is to prepare the making of a bespoke conservation film which will be widely disseminated.

Conservation of Isolated Populations of Lion-Tailed Macaque in Anamalai Hills of Western Ghats, India

The project aims to interlink the isolated populations of Lion-tailed macaque living in the forest fragments in Anamalai hills by identifying the potential wildlife corridors between the forest fragments and adjacent protected area. A matrix of variables from ecology, economics, sociology and politics will be considered while delineating the corridors.
