Humans and the other primates

Human beings have always felt fascination for other primates. Their physical and behavioral resemblance to our species is undeniable. This project shows a path of lights and shadows where our species is capable of everything to promote the viability of these animals, but also where the pressure we exert on them makes a long-term future impossible

The living fossil Valenciolenda fadaforesta

In 2021, a living fossil insect was described for science: Valenciolenda fadaforesta. It is a cave-dwelling bug whose closest relatives are found thousands of kilometers away from where it was discovered. This enigmatic animal, measuring only about 5 millimeters in size, has been found only in 3 caves along the Mediterranean coast. Scientists say that this discovery provides live evidence of a lineage possibly extinct for millions of years. This story was published in National Geographic Spain

Beyond fear

Science tells us that we have a predisposition to empathize with those creatures that are more like us. Is this why we fear snakes, spiders, beetles, toads, and other commonly vilified animals? This project delves into the complex answer behind the most feared groups of animals on earth

Chimpanzees in danger

Despite being our closest relatives, chimpanzees are severely threatened. Deforestation and poaching are some of the pressing dangers they face. In response, a network of sanctuaries coordinated by the Pan African Sanctuary Alliance works tirelessly to rescue and rehabilitate those individuals affected by human pressure. Their mission is to provide a future for this iconic species

A colourful jewel under threat

In the Balearic Islands, there is a species of lizard whose colors are unrivalled among vertebrates. It is the Balearic lizards Podarcis pityusensis, an endemic species found in Ibiza, Formentera, and the surrounding islets. This animal, which has become a symbol of the islands, is threatened due to the introduction of exotic snakes from the Iberian Peninsula. Story published in National Geographic (Spanish / Printed edition)

Guardians of the river: Understanding crocodile ecology for conservation

Vivid strokes of green and brown adorn the biodiverse jungle around Peru's Tambopata River. Here, researchers from Fauna Forever are conducting a promising project to unveil the life of the iconic but poorly-known crocodile. They measure and tag these reptiles to study their ecology, distribution, movement, and population density. This knowledge is vital for conservation efforts amidst threats like illegal mining, deforestation, and climate change

The hidden world of the Antarctic seafloor

Antarctica is experiencing a rise in temperature, causing structural damage. Scientists warn of the consequences of destabilizing the icy landmass. In 2022, researchers supported by Greenpeace explored the unseen Antarctic ecosystem, leading to the protection of 7 new areas. Project on assignment for National Geographic
