It turns out that the enormous rapids of the Congo River are a physical barrier that allow speciation to take place within the cichlid fishes.

This is depressing news, but it is true, unfortunately. And it should be posted and re-posted as much as possible. Dissemination to a large variety of news outlets allow many people to notice this dark message and take action. Because action of evolved minds is needed if we want our world to survive and support our future generations. Make no mistake: our Planet will survive, but the question is will there be human beings left after the next mass extinction?

So, we are starting to confuse animals now with our impacts on ecosystems - Result: species' extinction!

Multiresistent tuberculosis bacteria is a problem in elephant populations in zoos worldwide, and led to the death of Packy, Oregon Zoo's oldest male Asian elephant.

Apparently we have trouble maintaining our natural heritage sites all over the world. Or in other words, we are messing up Planet Earth. It clearly is time to change our attitude. Read about it in the article of Watson, Allan and Maxwell.

SAGA "LES FANTÔMES DE L'HIMALAYA"

Tel un centre de recueil, le nouvel amphithéâtre des charognards va nous permettre d’augmenter la capacité d’accueil de vautours accidentés issus de la nature. Nous y optimiserons la reproduction des oiseaux pour réintroduire encore plus de petits en Europe. L’un des moteurs de notre nouveauté est de marquer notre engagement pour la conservation des vautours. Un engagement fort et de longue durée, puisque nous relâchions notre premier vautour fauve dans les Cévennes en 1983 ! Près de 40 oiseaux ont suivi en France et en Bulgarie !

Amphibians are what canaries were to coal miners in former days - their death is an early warning that something is wrong in the environment (read: ecosystem)
