Meltwater rivers in the European Alps will change as glaciers melt – threatening animals that are vital for alpine ecosystems with habitat loss.
A new study looks back into history to assess human impacts on the range of Asian elephants and finds sharp decline starting several centuries ago.
The 10-week pilot program Totemic Species in Schools shows how Indigenous science can be woven into the existing curriculum. Students, teachers and parents provided positive feedback.
Australia’s plan to create the world’s first nature repair market is a bold move, but it could be a big part of a zero extinction Australia. So there’s every reason to give biodiversity markets a go.
To give native species their best chance of survival, we have to embrace ecosystem-based conservation – rather than trying to rescue individual species in isolation.
New research shows that if captive breeding stopped tomorrow, orange-bellied parrots would soon become extinct. So we’re locked into breeding programs until we can solve the underlying problems.
Researchers encourage citizen scientists to contribute to datasets on animal deaths caused by infrastructure. This will inform efforts to reduce the human impact on biodiversity.
Research on Denmark’s hedgehogs offers insight into their cause of death – and how to help them.
The first comprehensive population assessment of the raptor affectionately known as The Red reveals a species in trouble. Australia’s rarest bird of prey needs our help.
The Bahama warbler favours large pine trees and palms, fieldwork shows.
The swamp has not yet been drained everywhere.
Most of us have heard of the dangers of deforestation but there are other more subtle ways that human beings can endanger monkeys, apes and lemurs.
When species naturally hybridise, the influx of genes can reduce their risk of extinction as climate change shrinks their habitats.
New research finds nearly 30% of land animals could disappear form their local area by 2100 due to climate change and habitat destruction. This is more than double previous predictions.
Indigenous engineering and care for Country points to a better way to manage the Baaka.
Bats host many viruses dangerous to humans. But it’s only when their habitats are destroyed that we’re at risk.
A study of tweets posted in 2019 found that tweets about elephant conservation didn’t align with the actual greatest threats to the animals, creating the risk that funding could be misdirected.
Honey bees, wild and native bees face threats from parasites, pesticides and habitat loss. Shorter winters, more extreme weather and more habitat destruction won’t help.
The paltry spending means many species severely impacted by the megafires were left in desperate trouble, potentially pushing some closer to extinction.
The iconic monarch butterfly has been added to the Red List of endangered species, but hasn’t received protection in the US yet. That’s not necessarily a bad thing.
