Scientists predict 56% of ‘data deficient’ species are probably at risk.
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.
The findings are staggering in their representation of loss and environmental degradation across Australia. While I am disappointed, I am unfortunately not surprised.
Greater gliders are fluffy, cat-sized possums with large ears. State governments have failed them at every turn, and continue to raze their habitat.
Seabirds seem to be particularly at risk.
Hundreds of threatened mammal species don’t have a single protected area large enough to sustain a viable population.
To conserve wildlife, we must end human supremacy, say researchers.
Somerset Wetlands national nature reserve merges and extends six existing protected sites.
The hardest to save will be five reptiles, four birds, four frogs, two mammals and one fish, for which there are no recent confirmed records of their continued existence.
The birds only live on one island and are all very closely-related.
Let us introduce you to this shy performer and convince you that the Albert’s lyrebird is worthy of as much attention as its limelight-stealing sister species, the superb lyrebird.
Captive breeding of koalas could be done much more cheaply and avoid inbreeding issues if we embrace assisted reproduction.
Growing native grasses as cattle forage is an example of working lands conservation – balancing human use of the land with conservation goals.
Increasing revegetation from 1% to 10% of the landscape doubled the number of woodland bird species. The collective efforts of landowners can make a real difference for native wildlife.
Legal hunting helps rhino conservation for biological and socio-economic reasons.
Every gun and bullet sold in the U.S. generates excise taxes to support conservation. But Americans are buying guns now for different reasons than in the past – and increasingly, not for hunting.
Floods allow aquatic animals to venture into places you wouldn’t expect, from crocs in swimming pools to bull sharks in a golf course.
New research finds 74% of land managers who reported releasing a powerful biocontrol release it during the peak rabbit breeding period. This can lead to rabbit populations actually increasing.
It was the first time a bird has removed a tracking device, and the second time a bird species showed cooperative ‘rescue’ behaviour.
These are poignant cries of a disappearing landscape – the creaking calls of gang-gangs, buzzing bowerbirds and the mournful cry of the far eastern curlew.
