A trace fossil of an iguana burrow was discovered on San Salvador Island in the Bahamas. Estimated to be 115,000 years old, it is the first known fossil of its kind.
Breeding in captivity is expensive, and means the animal's gene pool will be sorely depleted. Using sperm and egg freezing and IVF techniques can reduce that.
Historical photographs of bison extermination are a window into a history of relationships between humans, bison and the environment.
This newly discovered ancient monk seal is challenging previous theories about how and where monachine seals evolved. It's the biggest breakthrough in seal evolution research in about 70 years.
For the first time in the US, a ballot measure will ask voters whether to restore wolves to a place where they've been eradicated. Coloradans have strong views on both sides.
By unlocking the full potential of rhino ovaries, we hope to produce enough eggs to revive the northern white rhino in the wild.
We found that signal crayfish traps tend to catch larger males, letting the bulk of the population go free.
Can a plan that brings together government and private landowners create enough habitat for monarch butterflies?
Without adequate information, we can’t prioritise efforts and funding to best protect our primate relatives.
A new plan targets areas around the world that can store carbon and protect large numbers of species. It calls for preserving these lands, working with Indigenous peoples and connecting wild areas.
A new study reports that baby Florida sea turtles are consuming large quantities of plastic waste during a critical early life stage at sea.
The Trump administration is opening the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge to oil and gas leasing – a step that's as much about politics as it is about energy.
Western science often focuses on specific parts of complex ecosystems, but Indigenous knowledge systems consider all parts as interconnected and inseparable. This achieves better conservation results.
Moss is part of an elite squad of detection dogs that will locate threatened species in the wild and help endangered species breed in captivity.
Enforcement at protected areas is key way to prevent bushmeat poaching, but it's also important to recognise the contribution bushmeat makes to livelihoods, incomes and food security.
A chemical refined from the blue, copper-based blood of horseshoe crabs helps identify contaminants in medical equipment inserted into humans.
Up to 8,000 spectacled flying-foxes, around 12% of the species' population, will be forced to leave their home in central Cairns.
In the 1800s, Americans hunted many wild species near or into extinction. Then in the early 1900s, the US shifted from uncontrolled consumption of wildlife to conservation. Could Asia follow suit?
Frogs are harvested as food by the millions every year. A new study shows that uncontrolled frog hunting could drive some populations to extinction by midcentury.
Pangolins are illegally traded, linked to the coronavirus pandemic and driven to extinction in some areas. That's why it's vital to reintroduce this threatened species back into the wild.
