Shorebirds, pangolin among species protected by new Seacology projects

March 5, 2014

In February we launched six new projects on islands around the world, including our first ever in Argentina where we’re helping protect the habitat of shorebirds (like the Red Knot, pictured) who migrate all the way from the Arctic each year.

Meanwhile, our new project in Bali, Indonesia protects habitat for pangolins and leaf-eating monkeys. In Zanzabar (Tanzania), a village water pump project involves conserving a forest home to the Pemba blue duiker, a 15-inch tall species of antelope, as well as the Red colobus monkey.
