Citizen scientists across North America have contributed over 1 million observations to this online platform, generating data useful for researchers.
Knowing an animal's normal lifespan is hugely important for conservation efforts, but it's harder to find out than you'd think.
Who wins, who loses and whose natures are being talked about when nature-based solutions are proposed?
Farming and habitat destruction have caused the species to disappear from large areas of Europe.
Wildlife TV producers used to think that focus on environmental issues could only be structured around doom and gloom stories – scaring away large audiences.
Species counts drive conservation science and policy, yet a major component of biodiversity is excluded from the data: non-native species.
An animal's poop may seem like something to avoid, but it's full of information about the creature that left it there.
Instead of boycotting palm oil, source it from pastureland and not recently logged forests.
After the woolly mammoth and other megafauna became extinct, surviving animals mingled less. This has big implications for modern conservation.
It's imperative that we understand what creates and sustains the delta for the future management of the system.
Europe is getting wilder as more people live in cities, but Naya's death shows this trend may have limits.
Scientists have tracked endangered species for years. Now they're figuring out how to highlight animals and plants that have recovered – but what does that mean?

'California is America fast-forward,' writes one scholar. Does that mean that the dystopian infernos that have consumed parts of the state are simply a picture of what awaits the rest of America?
There is a myth that dingoes are extinct and wild dogs are all that remain in Australia. Our results show dingoes in New South Wales persist despite some mixing with domestic dogs.
Aside from their intrinsic value, common bird species might be one of the only ways we connect with nature in our everyday lives. But these opportunities are under threat.
What can we do as individuals to help save the planet? Acting locally is satisfying because we can see the results, but a geographer argues that large-scale solutions often make the most difference.
The New Zealand robin has learnt to hide left-over food for later consumption, and it turns out that male birds with the best spatial memory have the greatest breeding success.
To save what’s left of nature on this increasingly human planet, conservation needs to become a top priority around the world, from the wildest of wildlands to the densest of cities.
Do animals have their own culture? A researcher studying the culture of whales argues that they do. She says understanding that may be one way to save them from extinction.
