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.
Artificial habitats are becoming more advanced, but they’re not a silver bullet.
To many of us trophy hunting is repellent. But here’s a look at why killing wild animals might be pleasurable to some.
Quenda are one of few remaining digging mammals in Australian urban bushlands, and fungi is their favourite food.
Freshwater mussels are one of the most endangered groups of animals on the planet. Their demise will have dramatic consequences for freshwater environments worldwide.
It’s usually good news when a once-scarce species starts to recover – unless it starts getting in humans’ way. An ecologist explains how science can help predict unwelcome encounters.
A barrier built to stop human migrants will instead cut off animals and scientific cooperation.
Northern Australia’s tropical savanna is one of the most fire-prone regions on the planet. We need to change the way we manage fires so we can help native wildlife come back from the brink.
There are so few wild ocelots in the US that the cats are becoming inbred, with a bad prognosis for their ultimate survival. But researchers are perfecting ways to get new genes into the population.
If the local context and priorities of those who most directly rely on natural resources for their survival isn’t considered, conservation efforts will continue to fail.
