Researchers from the State University of New York have released a new study that elaborated a new method to use sunlight to distill drinking water.
Tens of millions of bison once flourished across Canada and Mexico. Today, just a handful of bison live in Yellowstone National Park with population swelling to roughly 4,900.
Hippos are primarily herbivores but it turns out that they actually eat meat, too. But carnivorousness puts them at increased risk of contracting the life-threatening soil-borne disease known as anthrax.
Recently, a small herd of bison were released in Colorado. This suggests there is hope for the large buffalo that have been struggling to revive themselves ever since populations plummeted in the 1800s.
A seal riding atop a humpback whale – like this photo from Eden, New South Wales, shows illustrates an extremely rare occurence but other animals routinely help each other out.
Bison once freely roamed vast swaths of Canada and south-central Alaska, rarely, if ever, seeing a human hunter. However, by the late 1900s the animals were listed as endangered in Canada, and had disappeared entirely from Alaskan lands. Now a state-side initiative is bringing the bison back after a decades-long hiatus in an effort to repopulate the wild with these noble beasts.
