"lion conservation based around Hwange National Park in Zimbabwe. It’s arguably one of the biggest conservation projects ever undertaken on lions. We have been following the births, deaths and marriages of more than 500 individual lions and satellite tracking more than 200 of them to piece together science that, we hope, can underpin conservation policy, working closely with Zimbabwe’s National Parks and Wildlife Management Authority."
Wildlife conservationist David Macdonald studied Cecil the lion, whose killing made headlines around the world.

The gray catbird is so common in US backyards as to escape notice. But this bird is full of surprises. The amazing science of a long-distance backyard migrant.

Peer-reviewed Papers  - 
 
"Scientists took blubber samples from elephant seals before and after a 7-month foraging trip, and satellite-tracked some of them as they hunted across the northern Pacific at great depths... Not surprisingly, seals that stayed closer to populated areas showed higher levels of DDT compounds and PBDEs (the types of chemicals used in flame retardants), as well as PCBs, industrial chemicals..."
Study is one of first to track where in the ocean predators pick up different chemicals

Already the late Konrad Lorenz, father of ethology, used this characteristic of some birds, considering the first creature they see in the first hour or so after clutching as their mother.

More than 4,600 US students are fully enrolled at Germany universities, an increase of 20% over three years. At the same time, the total student debt in the US has reached $1.3 trillion (£850 billion).
Each semester, Hunter pays a fee of €111 ($120) to the Technical University of Munich (TUM), one of the most highly regarded universities in Europe, to get his degree in physics.
Included in that fee is a public transportation ticket that enables Hunter to travel freely around Munich.
Health insurance for students in Germany is €80 ($87) a month, much less than what Amy would have had to pay in the US to add him to her plan.
While the cost of college education in the US has reached record highs, Germany has abandoned tuition fees altogether for both German and international students. An increasing number of US students are taking advantage.

The Candid Howl Project, an international collaboration of biologists, behaviorists, sound experts, and others, is encouraging people to analyze thousands of recordings of dogs, dingoes, coyotes, and wolves in the safety of their own homes. The nonprofit International Wolf Center recently asked its nearly 70,000 Facebook followers to volunteer.
Scientists are asking citizens to analyze barks, howls, and yelps for clues to behavior that could save endangered species.

The results of the study will be very interesting, sure!

Migration  - 
 
 
In 1822, a stork with an arrow through its neck taught us that birds migrate.

While the bird was found in Germany, the arrow originated in central Africa, providing the first evidence of seasonal migration in birds. The German word "pfeilstorch" ("arrow stork") describes storks injured by arrows during their seasonal journeys between Europe and Africa—twenty-five pfeilstorch have been found to date.

Introduction
I study how habitat fragmentation impacts extinction.

"In the end we will conserve only what we love. We will love only what we understand. We will understand only what we are taught."
 - Baba Dioum

"I once had a sparrow alight upon my shoulder for a moment... and I felt that I was more distinguished by that circumstance than I should have been by any epaulet I could have worn."
 - Henry David Thoreau

"Living wild species are like a library of books still unread. Our heedless destruction of them is akin to burning the library without ever having read its books."
 - John Dingell
