In order to bolster its fight against illegal poaching, the Kenya Wildlife Service has opened a forensic laboratory. It is expected that information the lab will process should help in the prosecution of suspected poachers, whereas in the past many cases fell apart due to weak evidence. The laboratory will establish a DNA database that will have the ability to link meat and stolen ivory to specific animals.
At a recent conservation summit held in Botswana, experts warned that the African elephant could become extinct in the wild in just a few decades. Conservationists were highlighting the terrible fact that wild elephant numbers have declined due to demand for ivory resulting in an increase in poaching.
Monkeys are an incredibly curious species. In fact monkeys are so curious they are willing to forsake the chance to win a large potential prize just so they can find out whether they picked the winning option during a game of chance. The revelation came from the results of a recent study which showed rhesus macaques displaying a surprising desire to obtain new information, even when there was no apparent benefit from doing so.
Things have begun to change for the Amur tiger which used to be close to extinction. The endangered species is starting to repopulate itself in the wilds of China. Recently a camera trap set up by WWF captured the first known footage of a family of tigers living in China. The amazing footage is evidence that years of conservation efforts that have been focused on re-establishing a breeding population of the species within China is starting to pay off.
The Northern white rhino is on the brink of extinction and experts are hoping that in-vitro fertilisation (IVF) will save the species. Two adult males recently died within the space of a few months at the end of last year leaving just five of the animals on the planet. In a bid to save the species from extinction, conservationists will harvest eggs from the remaining females. The eggs will then be stored in the hopes that it becomes possible for IVF in the future.
