Fracking's impact on animals is still largely unknown, which scientists see as a real problem given that business is booming.
A new 3-D model created by researchers at the University of Cambridge reveals how some of Earth's earliest animals lived and died, a new study describes.
Imagine going to the zoo and not peering through fence slots or windows to see confined wildfire, but instead being immersed in a seemingly untouched and wild habitat. However, this isn't a safari; it's a new kind of zoo dreamed up by people with the Givskud Zoo and a Danish architectural firm.

Over 100 researchers behind a recently published paper defended the practice of collecting plant and animal specimens, contending that it does not lead to species extinction.
Scientists are arguing that the biodiversity of the world's species has not been facing annihilation, it has simply been facing a change in whose on top.
