Despite intense criticism of the hunting technique used, a news report says that roughly half of the live dolphins captured in the Japanese coastal town of Taiji were exported to China and other countries. The method is known as the “drive hunt” and has been criticised around the world as cruel. The criticism was so intense that many Japanese zoos and aquariums were forced to pledge to refrain from buying animals captured through the controversial technique.
Only a few hedgehogs remain in a central London park and they have managed to survive because they have learned to avoid busy roads according to the results of a new study. The species used to be extremely common throughout the UK but over the last 60 years their numbers have declined steeply largely as a result of road deaths.
Whilst they won’t be getting suited and booted any time soon, two chimpanzees may finally get their day in court. It is expected that the New York State Supreme Court will he legal arguments regarding whether two research chimps named Leo and Hercules should have the same rights as humans and under the law be set free rather than be considered as property.
A new study indicates that humans befriended dogs well before we began farming and settled in villages over 10,000 years ago. Recently an ancient wolf bone was discovered in Siberia which suggests that dogs and wolves split from a common ancestor as far back as 27,000 years ago. And whilst researchers are quick to point out that separation and domestication are not quite the same thing, it does mean it is possible that domestication occurred much earlier than was previously thought.
According to the results of a new study, the populations of some of the world’s largest herbivores have fallen so much; we are now at risk of an empty landscape. Scientists at Oregon State University say that populations of species such as tapirs, elephants, camels, zebras and rhinos are either falling or threatened by extinction in their natural habitat. This could mean fallow forests, deserts, savannahs and grasslands.
