Did you spot it?! 🐊

The Philippine crocodile, found only in the Philippines, is the rarest crocodile in the world. This amazing drone footage, courtesy of @mabuwayafoundation, is allowing us to see one of only about 100 individuals still left in the wild!

In 2002, 2003 and 2005, CLP supported a team of conservationists in The Philippines focused on
conserving the wild Philippine crocodile population in San Mariano. By conducting an outreach programme among local communities, and arranging the protection of crocodile nests by local law-enforcers, Philippine crocodiles were no longer being killed deliberately by 2005.

And due to the team's efforts, over the course of the three CLP projects, numbers increased from 16 to 46 non-hatchling crocodiles!! 🎉

Buoyed by this huge success, the team at @mabuwayafoundation in collaboration with @isabelastateuniversity continue their outreach work to instil new forms of respect for crocodiles.

In a recent publication in @currentconservation, Executive Director of @mabuwayafoundation @merlijnvanweerd writes: "The crocodile population has grown ... to nearly 100 individuals in 2023 and the distribution of the crocodiles increased from three to eight distinct wetland areas. In 2023, six community-protected nests in four different sites successfully hatched. Livestock predation by crocodiles has greatly diminished as a result of rehabilitated riparian buffer zones and livestock protection measures... there is no large-scale ecotourism program here that provides a financial incentive to communities that protect their crocodiles. Pride and respect are the main reasons why farmers now accept the crocodiles in their midst."

Incredible and inspirational work 👏

A CLP project team has recently published new research on gharials in @oryxthejournal 🐊

The study confirms a "hotspot" of these critically endangered crocodilians in an unprotected area of northern India.

In a survey conducted last year (as part of their 2022 CLP-funded project), the team spotted a total of 84 gharials along a 100-kilometre stretch of the unprotected Ghaghara River. 

It was previously thought that gharials had disappeared from this area after the construction of a nearby dam almost 50 years ago.

By combining this number with data from a previous survey here, the team calculated a total population of 258 gharials. This is almost four times higher than the number found in a protected area upstream, in Katerniaghat Wildlife Sanctuary.

Team leader @vashistha_gaurav explains: "It appears that juvenile gharials are dispersing downstream when the dam gates are opened during monsoon floods. This would explain why we have such low juvenile recruitment in the Katerniaghat population upstream."

The team are concerned that these gharials are at risk from unmanaged threats such as damming and agriculture. They suggest a new conservation initiative involving government agencies and local communities.

Since 2010, the Conservation Leadership Programme (CLP) has supported two projects focused on the conservation of Critically Endangered brown spider monkeys in Colombia, led by Dr Gabriela de Luna of @proyectoprimatescolombia.

Leala Rosen, previously CLP Program Officer at @thewcs, recently visited the team at the project site to learn first-hand about their long-running conservation efforts, including:

🌱 establishing multiple native tree nurseries to restore brown spider monkey habitat, including wildlife corridors
🫶work with local communities, including environmental education programs and developing sustainable livelihoods and economic practices
🤝 collaborating with landowners to create private reserves for brown spider monkeys
✍️ helping to create the National Action Plan for the Conservation of the Brown Spider Monkey in Colombia to establish protection for the species

Leala said: “The team's CLP Follow-Up Award in 2022 highlights the scalability of CLP project work, particularly in helping to foster long-standing ties with the local community to help enact long-term, tangible positive change – which is a key part of CLP’s overall mission. I’ve really enjoyed learning about what they’ve achieved and the exciting plans they have for the future."

This is very important workshop. I got an opportunity to participate in such training in 2014 in Ethiopia, a five-day workshop on Project Planning and Fundraising, almost one decade ago. Really the workshop organized by CLP, which was offered by #Stuart Paterson, #Marion Petit and #MAAIKE MANTEN, naked named ''Money machine''. I hope this fundraising workshop for conservationist in the Caribbean Region will significantly support the early career conservationist in this region and beyond. This capacity building should be scaled up to all regions. As the results of 2014 fundraising workshop, I am able to get small grants from various organization. Moreover, I established new network, which is also important in conservation planning and management. I am proud of # Conservation Leadership Programme !

I would very much like to participate in this workshop, but I am from Peru. A fraternal greeting.

Great awareness programme how can I join?

How pity that I am not from this region 😊 My best wishes from Georgia 🇬🇪

"Years may pass, but the impact of the Conservation Management & Leadership workshop remains etched in my memory. Grateful for the wonderful connections made and the valuable lessons learned. Today, I wake up with a heart full of CLP workshop nostalgia. @clpawards #LifeChangingMoments"

Reposted with permission from @cedrickfogwan 🙏💚

Cedrick Fogwan won a CLP Future Conservationist Award in 2022 to support his efforts to save the world's largest frog, the goliath frog, in Cameroon, where it is being threatened by hunting for food and the pet trade.

As part of his award, Cedrick took part in CLP's Conservation Management & Leadership workshop, which runs each year to bring our latest award-winning cohort together from across the world. Here, we give talented and dedicated conservationists the opportunity to build their skills, forge connections, share lessons, and make memories that last a lifetime.

Cedrick and his team work with local communities to recruit local hunters as citizen scientists (to record sightings of the frog and rescue them from poachers) and set up alternative food sources like snail farming.

Not only has Cedrick's project directly rescued over 20 of these magnificent amphibians from poachers (and probably many more indirectly) but it has also made local people aware of the need to protect this frog, as it feeds on the insect pests that would otherwise damage their crops.

A CLP project team has recently published new research on gharials in Oryx—The International Journal of Conservation 🐊

The study confirms a "hotspot" of these critically endangered crocodilians in an unprotected area of northern India.

In a survey conducted last year (as part of their 2022 CLP-funded project), the team spotted a total of 84 gharials along a 100-kilometre stretch of the unprotected Ghaghara River.

It was previously thought that gharials had disappeared from this area after the construction of a nearby dam almost 50 years ago.

By combining this number with data from a previous survey here, the team calculated a total population of 258 gharials. This is almost four times higher than the number found in a protected area upstream, in Katerniaghat Wildlife Sanctuary.

Team leader Gaurav Vashistha explains: "It appears that juvenile gharials are dispersing downstream when the dam gates are opened during monsoon floods. This would explain why we have such low juvenile recruitment in the Katerniaghat population upstream."

The team are concerned that these gharials are at risk from unmanaged threats such as damming and agriculture. They suggest a new conservation initiative involving government agencies and local communities.

🔍What will we find in the second of our CLP "Project Spotlight" series?

🦋 Ludlow's Bhutan swallowtail is one of the most beautiful butterflies in the world. Found only in Bhutan and a small corner of north-east India, very little is known about the species and it is categorised as Data Deficient by #iucn.

💡A CLP project team is working to change this. They are uncovering information about the butterfly and its preferred habitats so they can work out how to protect it. They are also speaking with local people to ask for their support to conserve it.

📢 By working with CLP partner @faunafloraint the team has gained media attention in @geographical_magazine in the hope of spreading the word about this little known insect far and wide.

Leala Rosen, previously CLP Program Officer, recently visited the team at the project site to learn first-hand about their long-running conservation efforts, including:

🌱 establishing multiple native tree nurseries to restore brown spider monkey habitat, including wildlife corridors
🫶work with local communities, including environmental education programs and developing sustainable livelihoods and economic practices

Merry Christmas and happy New Year!

In a recent interview with CLP alumna Moeumu "Moe" Uili, we hear about a decade of work dedicated to saving the 'Samoan dodo' or Manumea as it is locally known.

With only 150 individuals thought to be left in the wild, Moe has been working with the Samoa Conservation Society and other organisations, including CLP partner BirdLife International, to save the species.

Highlights from her 2013 CLP project:

🐣 The discovery of a single juvenile - the first successful breeding record in over ten years

📢 Survey data led to IUCN upgrading the species from Endangered to Critically Endangered

🌱Survey data helped in the creation of the Samoan Government's ten year Manumea Recovery Plan launched in 2020

Read the interview to find out more about Moe's proudest moments, her career journey, and what she thinks is the key to successful conservation.
