  1. A Cultural Conscience for Conservation

    Contributor(s):: Caroline Good, Dawn Burnham, David W Macdonald

    On 2 July 2015, the killing of a lion nicknamed “Cecil” prompted the largest global reaction in the history of wildlife conservation. In response to this, it is propitious to consider the ways in which this moment can be developed into a financial movement to transform the...

  2. A Hypothetical Engagement: GATT Article XX(a) and Indonesia's FATWA Against Trade in Endangered Species

    Contributor(s):: Lisa M. Meissner

    The greatest recognized threat facing biodiversity conservation today is habitat destruction. Other threats include but are not limited to global climate change, encroachment, illegal wildlife trafficking, and overexploitation through intensive agricultural and commercial uses.

  3. A tryst with reptiles | Yamini Bhaskar | TEDxNTU

    Contributor(s):: Yamini Bhaskar

    Maintaining a high standard of animal welfare is essential in zoos, and methods of animal welfare assessment should aim to evaluate positive as well as negative states. The indicators that are useful in assessing these are discussed as there is huge variability in the available information...

  7. Behavioural testing of dogs in animal shelters to predict problem behaviour

    | Contributor(s):: Borg, J. A. M. van der, Netto, W. J., Planta, D. J. U.

    Although new homes can be found for dogs in animal shelters, many returned. This is due partly to a poor 'match' between dog and new owner. A better prediction of problem behaviour could improve the matching procedure. A set of tests was developed to test four problem-related behavioural...

    | Contributor(s):: Surendra Varma

    Among all the elephant conservation issues the issue of poaching, on a large or small scale will have a severe effect on elephant populations.

Livingstone, Jonnell C. Sanciangco, John D. Stevens, Sarah Valenti, William T. White

    The rapid expansion of human activities threatens ocean-wide biodiversity. Numerous marine animal populations have declined, yet it remains unclear whether these trends are symptomatic of a chronic accumulation of global marine extinction risk. We present the first systematic analysis of threat...

    | Contributor(s):: James Kimo Rogala, Mark Hebblewhite, Jesse Whittington, Cliff A. White, Jenny Coleshill, Marco Musiani

    National parks are important for conservation of species such as wolves (Canis lupus) and elk (Cervus canadensis). However, topography, vegetation conditions, and anthropogenic infrastructure within parks may limit available habitat. Human activity on trails and roads may lead to indirect habitat...
