Wildlife endocrinologist and research professor Kathleen Hunt has pioneered new methods of analyzing the hormone levels of Baleen Whales.
Feared that they were already gone extinct, Bactrian deer from Afghanistan made a surprising comeback.
Expensive, illegally traded and endangered--this is the Asian arowana.
Bringing a spark of hope to wildlife conservation groups, is the increasing number of tigers in the wild after 100 years, as reported by WWF.
No, it isn't the End of Days, but we are likely living during what experts will later refer to as one of the largest extinction events in Earth's history - an unexpected addition to prehistory's "Big Five" mass extinctions.
The United States Fish and Wildlife Service (FWS) has decided to put the brakes on a recovery program for one of the most endangered species of canine in all of North America, the red wolf. And while the Service assures us that this does not spell the end for the program entirely, it has done little to quell the ire of conservation groups.
It's official! The chimpanzee is a fully protected species in the United States regardless of whether it is a captive or wild animal. And that's good news for humanity's closest primate relative, as it means that all chimps in US labs will be 'retiring' from the exhausting (and arguably maddening) world of research.
It seems that males may not be necessary for reproduction after all. Scientists have discovered that around three percent of smalltooth sawfish living in a Florida estuary are the product of "virgin births" - the first case ever seen in vertebrates in the wild.
The iconic Great Barrier Reef in Australia avoided being put on the World Heritage Site's "in danger" list, based on a UNESCO draft report, however concerns were still raised about its future in the long term.

Mountain gorillas are currently suffering from a serious inbreeding problem, and while scientists everywhere worry that this will lead them down the path to extinction, one new genetic study says that it might in fact be their salvation.
In light of their falling numbers, the northern spotted owl may soon gain more protections, federal biologists announced Wednesday.
Researchers have recently released a paper that details 15 of the most critically endangered species on Earth - organisms that not only are facing what looks to be inevitable extinctions, but are barely receiving any aid to stop it. Now conservationists are calling for the money and expertise that would be needed to help these creatures - ranging from seabirds to tropical gophers - survive.
