Attempt to Recover Sumatran Rhino Species

Critter News

Tam, whose species is known for its solitary nature, has been resettled in a wildlife reserve in Malaysia's Sabah state, the last preserve of the Borneo Sumatran rhino _ a subspecies of the bristly, snub-nosed Sumatran rhino. Authorities hope to bring at least five male and female rhinos into the reserve over the next few years so that they can mate and produce offspring, said Junaidi Payne, the senior technical adviser for the World Wildlife Fund's Malaysian Borneo chapter.

Threatened Birds of Nanhui, Shanghai

10,000 Birds

A former World Wildlife reserve in Nanhui was simply turned into agricultural land. By some measures, Shanghai is the most populated city in the world. That does not make it sound like a very promising or important bird habitat. And yet it is.

Week 21: Our last week in Scotland

10,000 Birds

Tomorrow morning we will head on down to England, and the township of Hull, to visit the Spurn Wildlife Reserve. It is Tuesday night, and I am sitting in a historic hotel, just a kilometer or so north of the Scotland/England border. It seemed a fitting way to end our time here in Scotland. We are at the very farthest south in Scotland that we will travel, when just a week ago we were at Dunnet Head, the northern most part of the mainland Scotland.

Little Big Year – Week 34: We visit Colorado and Texas

10,000 Birds

The west end of the lake has been designated as a Watchable Wildlife Reserve, with some nice walking trails and a couple of very nice hides built overlooking some varied waterways. With Wyoming and South Dakota in our rear view mirror, we look toward Colorado, and a hot spot I have been anxious to visit. Trinidad Colorado is located just a few miles north of the Colorado – New Mexico border, and home to the Trinidad Reservoir.

Penguins, Parrots and Wine on Matiu / Somes Island

10,000 Birds

As I have explained before these islands are the best place for a lot of the birding here because they are more easily protected from introduced mammals which wreck such havoc on the wildlife here. Since 1984 it has been planted with native bush and pests were controlled, and is now used as a wildlife reserve. When it comes down to it New Zealand is all about islands.
