Mohamed bin Zayed Species Conservation (Project No. 222530255) - Pumpkin toadlet - Awarded $8,619 on December 20, 2022
20-12-2022 - Pumpkin toadlet

Understanding the role of microclime in future distribution and behaviour of the small pumpkin-toadlet Brachycephalus mirissimus. In this project, we will use acoustic monitoring and modelling to study the role of altitudinal and altitudinal gradient in this microendemic species under climate change scenarios to propose conservation actions.

Mohamed bin Zayed Species Conservation (Project No. 222528579) - Vicente's poison frog - Awarded $8,000 on April 29, 2022
29-04-2022 - Vicente's poison frog

The project will estimate for the first time the abundance of O. vicentei and its correlation with environmental variables such as: temperature, humidity, rainfall and forest structure during two seasons. We will use dynamic acoustic surveys along with in situ measurements of environmental covariates through sensor deployment This will provide vital information about the importance of the environment where this species lives.
