Abstract

My research focusses on assessing the ability of different monitoring methods to gather conservation-relevant data for the endangered and elusive Philippine pangolin. The Philippine pangolin is arguably the least known of all Asian pangolin species; population declines of >50% are predicted but we have little knowledge on the local or international threats placed upon this species, or even of the effectiveness of different research methods to gather baseline data to inform its conservation. A range of field techniques will therefore be used to investigate population status, trends and drivers of decline. This PhD is funded by NERC and the Zoological Society of London.
