WILDLIFE SURVIVAL PROGRAM

Investing in threatened species before it’s too late

PROJECTS IN AFRICA

 



Madagascar Fauna & Flora

Location: Toamasina, Madagascar

Project Since: 2018

Mission:
The Madagascar Fauna and Flora Group protects the rich biodiversity of Eastern Madagascar through conservation, research, education and capacity building.  

Highlights:
Unable to carry out missions in 2020 due to Covid, in 2021 a number of missions led to seven diademed sifakas captured and collared. Data collected shows that there have been more births and a higher survival rate than expected. A sifaka translocation agreement was verbally agreed upon by the government for 2022.



Colobus Conservation Ltd.

Location: Diani, Kenya

Project Since: 2014

Mission:
To promote, in close cooperation with other organizations and local communities, the conservation, preservation and protection of primates, in particular the Angolan colobus monkey and its associated coastal forest habitat in Kenya.

Highlights:
Most primate mortalities experienced in the region are due to traffic collisions in their attempt to cross the busy Diani Beach road. To combat this, Colobus Conservation has erected 30 aerial canopy bridges along this main road. The program observed an increase in the use of these bridges by three species of monkeys (colobus, Sykes, vervets), and there are now approximately 250,000 crossings annually on these canopy bridges.
