After Thailand's Huai Kha Khaeng Wildlife Sanctuary beefed up patrols for poachers starting in 2005, tiger populations grew substantially. This is an outstanding conservation success, say researchers, but they also warn that continued patrolling is needed to ensure that populations of prey grow to meet the food demands of more tigers.
Footage of the only known wild jaguar in the U.S. was recently released by the Center for Biological Diversity. The big cat can be seen alive and well, lurking through wooded areas and across a mountain creek. However, researchers warn the animal's habitat is threatened by a proposed mining site.
Recent camera trappings in a national park in Ethiopia reveal a hidden population of up to 200 lions. Researchers say this could be promising for the currently vulnerable species.
Using camera traps, researchers have learned a little more about elusive bush dogs and their distribution across Panama. This could ultimately help conservationists protect these "near-threatened" animals.
Serengeti National Park, Tanzania, is one of the most diverse and well-studied ecosystems in the world, and yet there is still much more to learn about the behavior and lifestyle of the species that call it home. Now, thanks to crowdsourcing and the largest-ever scientific camera trapping survey, unique snapshots are revealing the secret life of Serengeti's most elusive animals.
