The Last Butterfly

The Eastern monarch is in trouble, and this is the time to help (no science degree needed). NASHVILLE — A monarch butterfly’s chrysalis is one of the most beautiful things in nature. Bright emerald green and flecked with gold, it is an exquisite jewel that contains within it an even more exquisite promise. The day before a monarch emerges, its chrysalis turns dark, almost black, but if you hold a light up to it, you can see the shape of vivid orange wings inside. The wings are lined with black veins like stained-glass windows in a cathedral. They are still tightly folded, but they hold,...

Can a controversial in-vitro fertilization process save the northern white rhino?

Can a controversial in-vitro fertilization process save the northern white rhino? On March 19, 2018, wildlife conservationists mourned the death of a 45-year-old northern white rhinoceros named Sudan, one of the last three remaining northern white rhinos on earth, and the only surviving male. Keepers at the Ol Pejeta Conservancy in Kenya, where Sudan lived, euthanized the ailing rhino to end his age-related suffering. With Sudan's passing, there are only two remaining northern white rhinos left in the world — both female and part of Sudan's bloodline — daughter Najin and granddaughter...

Dispelling notions of traditional safaris, a stay here—within a dense forest thick with acacia and juniper trees, grazed by elephants, giraffes, and dik-diks—is just as much about access to wildlife and nature as it is about the indigenous Samburu culture. The Samburu are a group of seminomadic pastoralists related to the Maasai, who’ve thrived in the desert foothills of Mount Kenya for centuries. Though their territory...

‘People need stake in rhino’s survival’

'People need stake in rhino's survival' Independent Online Full coverage Picture: Karen Sandison/African News Agency (ANA) The large number of anti-poaching, conservation and management measures that have been implemented to protect rhinos are bound to fail because they don’t involve the most important “change agents” in conservation - people who live in or near game reserves. This is the main finding of a new report, Ending Wildlife Trafficking, Local Communities as Change Agents, published by the Global Initiative Against Transnational Organised Crime. The international...
