The search is on for the extinct Tasmanian tiger after an extremely detailed sighting in Far North Queensland. The legendary thylacine was declared extinct in 1936 when the last of its species died at Hobart Zoo in Australia.
Tasmanian tigers are thought to have died out decades ago, but sightings in Australia are prompting scientists to search for proof of their possible survival.
With this discovery of an unprecedented variety of dinosaur tracks, scientists are dubbing this coastline as the country’s Jurassic Park.
Rather than coming close to shore only to breed, James Cook University researchers found that female blacktip sharks remain in Cockle Bay, Australia, year-round with their young. This highlights the importance of conservation along coastal areas.
We've all heard about how noise pollution negatively impacts marine environments. But a recent study suggests that motor boats, rather than large cargo ships, easily stresses young damselfish which ultimately gives their predators the upper hand.
Although fish biomass is often used to evaluate the effectiveness of conservation efforts, a new study suggests the metric doesn't provide the whole story. As a result, researchers are calling for the establihsment and maintenance of larger, more permanent "protected areas" for marine life to thrive.
Two species of sea snakes previously thought to be extinct were recently spotted Off the coast Of Western Australia. Scientists from James Cook University suggest that there may still be time to save these species.
Captured damselfish release a chemical distress call that confuses their attackers by calling other predators to the area. The ensuing competition buys them enough time to flee.
Rabbitfish have exceeded researchers expectations in terms of their ability to cooperate. A new study shows that theythey use a cooperative feeding strategy where one stands guard for protection while another is feeding.
Scientists have found a new tool for combating Crown of Thorns Starfish (CoTS) that threaten the Great Barrier Reef: Household vinegar, which has proven to kill the starfish in lab settings and is a cheaper alternative to current drugs.
Certain genes may give secret sauce (and stress-dealing ability) to fish, generation by generation.
Researchers with James Cook University and others have worked out a way to more easily distinguish individual black leopards in Malaysia.
