Moose die-offs in the animal's southern range are prompting researchers to conduct population counts over the next three years in New York's Adirondack Mountains.
Iberian orcas' search for tuna, their main food source, is leaving them trapped in certain waters off of Spain, causing researchers to worry over this already vulnerable species, a new study says.
Salamanders are tricky to spot and certainly even harder to keep track of. That's why salamander populations have largely been left up to speculation. However, new research suggests that they are actually very prevalent, and play a significant role in the food chain of whole-forest ecosystems.
In an attempt to explain southern right whale die-offs, scientists behind a new study are using satellite tags to remotely track the massive mammals in Argentina and record their every movement.
It may sound a bit backwards, but researchers found that a moderate amount of death in an animal population may actually help boost overall populations, helping experts better understand how to manage threatened fish and wildlife stocks.
A remarkably rare and threatened North American songbird appears to have found a new home in an unlikely place: the sprawling "biological deserts" of commercial pine farms. Conservationists had been concerned that the Swainson's warbler would ever boast a stable and unthreatened population. Now, with this new discovery, things are looking positive for the first time in decades.
Grizzly bears are making a comeback in Yellowstone National Park, according to a recent assessment of the threatened beasts. And this recovery has a lot to do with the fact that fewer grizzlies are dying in and around the park. Now officials are even considering lifting protections for the hardy animal.
Indian veterinarians and livestock farmers seem to be complying with the ban of a drug that has nearly eliminated local vulture populations. Now experts are saying that these vultures are no longer on the decline, giving conservationists hope for a steady recovery.
You may be familiar with the idea that the young are the legacy and backbone of any community, leaving the old to grow fat and retire without a care in the world. It would be nice to think that this romantic concept applies to animal populations too. However, researchers are arguing that this is just not the case. Fisheries are extremely dependent on their old, slow, but still fertile females to keep populations up.
Mexican officials from the World Wildlife Fund are expressing their optimism that the monarch butterfly population may soon rebound, as the deforestation of their wintering habitats is showing signs of having significantly slowed.
A record number of crocodile hatchlings have been discovered in the Everglades National Park this summer, showing that efforts to restore crocodile habitats in the region are working well.
The number of California sea otters, a species on a painfully slow recovery path after facing near extinction, is currently holding steady, but according to new research, great white sharks are partly to blame for their recovery stall.
Researchers have concluded that the planet can support a lot more plant life than experts once thought, even in its current state, according to a recent study.
Workers bees only build nest cells for male honeybees until their colony becomes popular - about 4,000 workers in all, according to a recent study.
