By unlocking the full potential of rhino ovaries, we hope to produce enough eggs to revive the northern white rhino in the wild.
Several theories have suggested either humans, climate change or both drove megafauna extinctions in Southeast Asia. Our newest work suggests otherwise.
The world missed all 20 targets for stemming the tide of biodiversity loss. But there has been some progress over the last decade.
A conservation scientist interviewed on the programme says Sir David tells it like it is.
The "Tasmanian tiger" was hunted to extinction based on its perceived size as a predator big enough to take sheep. But it seems this was just a tall tale, and the thylacine weighed just 16.7kg.
Twenty of these freshwater fish species have a 50% or greater probability of extinction within the next 20 years.
Recent reports of dramatic declines in insect populations have sparked concern about an 'insect apocalypse.' But a new analysis of data from sites across North America suggests the case isn't proven.
When the dinosaurs went extinct, some species took over the world. Adaptability, not survivability, explains why.
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.
Large numbers, huge ranges, and adaptibility make the human species very difficult to eradicate
What drives people to garden isn't the fear of hunger so much as hunger for physical contact – and a longing to engage in work that is real.
The NSW government is soon expected to grant environmental approval to Snowy 2.0. But that process should be halted.
For decades, the extinction of passenger pigeons has been explained by two theories of human impact. New research shows one of these theories is now more compelling than the other.
Without an emergency cull of feral horses in Kosciuszko National Park, the land cannot recover from the bushfires – and threatened species are at grave risk of being annihilated.
While Hail Mary conservation efforts can pull birds back from the brink, an extinction wave still looms.
The ecological costs of huge, repetitive, high-severity wildfires on ecosystems could be colossal.
In a matter of weeks, the fires have subverted decades of dedicated conservation efforts for many threatened species.
Overhunting of megafauna such as mammoths may have force us to take up farming, ultimately leading to modern society
People tend to pay attention when things get personal, so you need to know how climate change is damaging things in your life.
Understanding why the great auk went extinct could help protect species still living today.
