Two adult gray wolves were found dead within 50 yards of one another Wallowa County, Oregon. Authorities believe poaching was involved. Next month, Oregon's Department of Fish and Wildlife will decide whether to take the gray wolf off the state's endangered species list or not.
The United Nations Environment Program recently recognized the significant impact that the anti-poaching group known as the Black Mambas has had in combating hunting in South Africa's Balule Private Game Reserve.
The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration tagged a female hammerhead shark two months ago. With the use of satellite-tracking tag, the researchers observed the shark swimming unexpectedly far for food.
Barbastelle bats observed in central France have adapted to hunt eared moths more efficiently. Using two different, weak signals, they are able to sneak up on their prey while keeping track of their environment.
Anyone familiar with bats knows that the term "blind as a bad" actually translates to "not blind at all." Not only do these animals have perfectly functioning eyes, but they also have the help of sonar in failing light. Now researchers have found a way to show what bats "see" with that echolocation, and the results have revealed some impressive findings.
The US Fish and Wildlife Service (FWS) recently ruled that the North American gray wolf will remain classified as an endangered species despite its speedy recovery across the continent. Strangely enough, many conservationists looking to compromise with angry farmers and state officials are saying that this is not the good news they were hoping to hear.
The Arizona Game and Fish Department, along with the Attorney General's Office, filed a lawsuit Monday against the federal government for lacking an updated recovery plan for the Mexican gray wolf, an endangered species.
For most, jellyfish have always been those overly alien things that float in aquariums and across our television screens. Some are even mistaken for drifting plants, barely moving as the currents dictate where they head. However, researchers have now identified one group of jellies that actively lure and capture prey - a revelation that soundly disproves assumptions that these creatures lead a mindless existence.
Despite concerns from conservationists, Zambia is preparing to lift a 2013 ban on the hunting of wild lions and leopards in order to raise funds.
For five years now, there has been a notable decline in the number of wolf sightings in Denali National Park and Preserve. Now a new report from the National Park Service (NPS) is suggesting that wolf hunting could be to blame, as there are few limitations on when a wolf can be killed by a hunter in the Alaskan wilderness.
It sounds like something straight out of Planet of the Apes, and could turn a great deal of what experts thought they knew about chimps on its head: chimps are using tools - like tiny spears - to hunt prey, and it's females who are often bearing these weapons of choice.
A bizarre new study shows that Neanderthals used to beat up their deceased brethren, cutting, beating and fracturing their bones as part of some strange ritual.
Lynx and other big cats belonging to the family Felidae are currently threatened with habitat loss and fragmentation, and yet these animals are largely understudied by scientists, hindering any possible conservation efforts, according to a new report.
New research has discovered ancient livestock teeth that are helping to solve the mystery of African herd migrations, a route which has long been debated by researchers.
