The Wildlife Conservation Society (WCS) released a photo today of a single Asiatic wild ass or khulan (Equus hemionus hemionus) crossing a previously impenetrable barrier along the Trans Mongolian Railroad – the first known crossing by this near-threatened species into the eastern steppe in 65 years.
Logging of intact, native forests increases the risk and severity of fire, and likely had a profound effect on the recent, catastrophic Australian bushfires, according to new research published in the journal Nature Ecology and Evolution by a team from the University of Queensland, ANU, Macquarie University, and Wildlife Conservation Society (WCS).
A new study reveals that wild canids (wild dogs, jackals, wolves, foxes) and striped hyenas can serve as flagship species for increasing India’s conservation potential
A disease already known for causing massive die-offs of wildlife in Asia is spreading.
Khulan (Equus hemionus), a species of wild ass living in the Gobi Desert, travel extremely long distances to meet their water needs – a strategy that will require urgent conservation interventions as local human impacts increase, says a team of scientists.
