Mohamed bin Zayed Species Conservation Fund helps essential projects at home and abroad.
A Global Commitment
With an impressive backing of $25 million, the Mohamed bin Zayed Species Conservation Fund has spearheaded initiatives that have led to the rediscovery and documentation of 1,678 species and subspecies, setting an unparalleled standard in species preservation efforts.
In the current year alone, the fund has extended support to 183 conservation projects across approximately 65 countries. These projects have focused on safeguarding some of the planet’s most imperiled species, demonstrating a profound commitment to global biodiversity.
A Testament to Hope
One striking success story involves the Emirati leaf-toed gecko, the Asaccus caudivolvulus. Initially presumed to teeter on the brink of extinction, a groundbreaking expedition unearthed 52 of these critically-endangered geckos thriving along the UAE’s east coast, despite significant development in the region.
A Thriving Future
Supported by the fund, this monumental discovery, announced in September, has sparked renewed optimism for the survival of this endangered species. The unwavering dedication of the Mohamed bin Zayed Species Conservation Fund continues to exemplify a beacon of hope for the conservation and thriving existence of threatened species worldwide.
