The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration has confirmed that 2014 is looking to be the hottest year in recent history…
Don’t cry, don’t cry, don’t cry… the northern white rhino is dwindling precariously in numbers – we might be a few weeks away from being able to count them on one hand.
It seemed like a logical idea, because barn owls love to eat rats. And what would make barn owls really happy? A rat infestation!
Watching this video is like the Tabard to swimming in the ocean. It makes cage diving seem almost as pleasant as being stuck in space without oxygen. Fun times.
With hundreds of animals/insects/creatures/things on the endangered species list, we can really call it a miracle when one of them comes off, and re-emerges in the wild, without any human intervention…
People can really be silly sometimes. And sometimes we really get a kick (no pun intended) out of doing stupid things. Often we’re caught up in the moment, and can only look back on what we’ve done and shake our heads.
It is a pretty disturbing thing to wake up and discover the river you have been living beside all your life has turned blood-red overnight. It is difficult to say which would be a more disturbing hypothesis: that the river has been turned red due to massive bloodshed or due to massive chemical dumping…
As usual, we as human beings need to wait for a bunch of researchers to confirm things we actually already knew. But now that it has the official stamp of scientific research and evidence, we can say with greater authority and certainty, Fracking is very, very bad!
Meet Kendall Jones, the Texan cheerleader who hunts wild and endangered African animals, and poses with them on social media.
Ivory poachers have killed one of the biggest and most well-known elephants in the world, leaving the death of Satao as a real loss to the wildlife world.
A baby rhino who watched poachers murder his mother for her horn has been traumatised and is unable to sleep by himself since the killing.
We humans are such narcissists sometimes a mass extinction might be what we deserve.
Caught on camera by a Mr. Ricky Forbes, while driving through Kootenay National Park on Saturday afternoon, here we see the incredible rescue of baby bear by mama bear.
Animal cruelty charges have been laid against Elephants of Eden, the Knysna Elephant Park, their directors and management, by The National Council of SPCAs (NSPCA) following the release of a video showing the training methods used to get elephants ready for ‘elephant safaris.’
Elephant poaching is out of control around Africa, but it’s been a decade since one has occurred in the Kruger National Park. The poachers down here have always preferred hacking off rhino horns. Until now.
Elephants experience emotions similar to humans – that’s a fact. But this beautifully tragic moment caught on video is something you couldn’t possibly imagine.
Lesley Rochat is a shark conservationist. You’ll know by now that conservationists are constantly pulling stunts to draw attention to their various causes. You’ll also know by now that sex sells. Lesley also knows this, so she went swimming sans swimming suit with sharks, and recorded it. Best part! It happened in Durban.
Tiger? No. Monkey? No. Elephant? Close. The most trafficked mammal in the world isn’t that well known, and therein lies the problem. This pinecone with legs is disappearing from the face of the earth, while almost no one knows of its existence.
Poaching is a horrible reality threatening South Africa’s endangered species. Some times we are desensitized to the plight of the animals being killed in our national parks. Hopefully this heart wrenching video of an injured rhino will invoke more people into combating poaching.
With only 1500 grey nurse sharks left off the east coast of Australia, marine life veterinarians and divers rushed to the aid of one particular grey nurse shark in distress. A diver spotted the animal tangled in an elastic cord.
Due to its inhospitable habitat and minuscule population, the Snow Leopard rarely gets photographed. National Geographic published the first ever photo taken of the animal in the wild as recently as the 1970s – and only a handful of people have had any luck ever since.
A team of scientists and researchers have discovered a previously-unknown species of dead-leaf toad in the mountains of the Peruvian Andes.
It’s a tricky task, trying to figure out precisely how old a shark is. It has mystified marine biologists for decades – and it was just a matter of time before we developed tech that’s good enough to give us accurate results. That time only happened quite recently.
Believe it or not, conjoined whales are not new to science. They have been seen before in Fin whales, Sei whales and Minke whales – but conjoined gray whales have never been documented before.
You know that “no animals were harmed in the making of this film” thing? Those of us who watched Ang Lee’s Oscar-winning ‘Life of Pi’, will remember the tiger, Richard Parker. Well, apparently he wasn’t “not harmed” in the production of the film after all.
Alright, alright – so we had to post a story about this. One page on social media posts pictures of an American woman sitting next to a dead lion that she killed in South Africa, and the whole internet goes nuts.
With the incredibly high price tag of rhino horn in the east, many aspire to one day get their hands on one, so they can be like this guy, Mr L. Not just for supposed health benefits, but also status.
