  1. How the rehabilitation of animals in captivity affects survival rates upon release : focus on a reintroduction project with Amazonas vinacea

    Contributor(s):: Karen Burk

        The topic of rehabilitation is of special importance when concerning animals that are near extinction. Biodiversity is the variety of animals, plants, their habitats and their genes. It is a key part of the functioning of the planet; if it is changed over a large scale then...

  2. Too many hogs? A review of methods to mitigate impact by wild boar and feral hogs

    Contributor(s):: Massei, G., Roy, S., Bunting, R.

  3. Resources and their distribution can influence social behaviour at translocation sites: lessons from a lizard

    Contributor(s):: Ebrahimi, M., Bull, C. M.

    In a translocation programme, social interactions among released individuals can influence the tendency for the individuals to remain at the site where they have been released. Dispersal away from the region of release may reduce the success of a translocation because dispersing individuals may...

  4. Between "Wild" and "Tame": Placing Encounters with Sirocco the Kakapo Parrot in Aotearoa/New Zealand

    Contributor(s):: Chambers, C. N. L., Main, M. E.

    This article explores different dynamics and spatialities of nonhuman animal encounters to illuminate important intersections between place and human-animal relations. The article focuses on Sirocco the Kakapo, an endangered New Zealand parrot, who due to illness as a chick was hand-reared in...

  5. Visual conspecific cues will not help in pygmy bluetongue lizard translocations

    Contributor(s):: Ebrahimi, M., Bull, C. M.

    Where a translocation program is used to reinforce an existing population of an endangered species, the response of the introduced individuals to cues from conspecific residents will have an important impact on the success of the translocation. If those cues induce the translocated individuals to...

  6. Translocation Effects on the Behavior of Black-tailed Prairie Dogs (Cynomys Ludovicianus)

    Contributor(s):: Farrar, John P., Coleman, Karin L., Bekoff, Marc, Stone, Eric

  7. Behavioural and corticosterone responses to capture and confinement of wild blackbirds ( Turdus merula )

    Contributor(s):: Adams, N. J., Farnworth, M. J., Rickett, J., Parker, K. A., Cockrem, J. F.

    Capture and temporary confinement of wild birds are integral parts of wildlife management practice and research used, for example, during translocation or reintroduction initiatives. We report here on the behavioural and stress hormone (corticosterone) responses of wild blackbirds (Turdus merula)...
