A grey crowned crane forages for food on the plains. These elegant birds roam the savannah, nest in wetlands, and roost in trees. With white cheeks, yellow crowns tipped with black, and pale blue-grey eyes, these stunning birds have gained recognition in the political and elite rounds: they are the national bird of Uganda and are trophy pets for the Rwandan elite. Elsewhere, they roam wild, but significant habitat loss has seen populations plummet by 85% in the last 4 decades, to now a mere 30,000. While conservation efforts are underway to protect this highly revered bird, hopefully, things will change fast enough before this endangered species is wiped off the earth forever.

Do you know anyone that wants to be a zoo keeper? Share this:
Captive wildlife can be a notoriously difficult field to get into, and zoo keeping is a highly competitive career within that field. In order to determine what prepares one for a career in zoo keeping and makes them a desirable applicant, I interviewed some keepers from Henry Vilas Zoo in ...

About this community

Saving wildlife is at the core of WWF’s mission. Why? Because animal populations are disappearing at an alarming rate. But even in the face of threats like poaching, habitat loss and overuse of natural resources, WWF is creating a better future for wildlife every day. Protecting these species also contributes to a thriving, healthy planet for people’s health and well-being—from forests that slow climate change and filter water to oceans that provide more than one-sixth of the world’s food. http://worldwildlife.org/species We encourage candid discussions about wildlife and nature on our community, but please be respectful--and don't post spam!

China: Hong Kong Customs seizes four tonnes of suspected pangolin scales

Hong Kong Customs (June 23) detected a sea-bound cargo smuggling case and seized about 4,000kg of suspected pangolin scales from a container at the Kwai Chung Customhouse Cargo Examination Compound.

The total value of the seizure was about $9.8 million. This is the largest quantity of seizure of pangolin scales in five years.

* Armoured against predators – except wildlife criminals http://ht.ly/oWRe301FRdm
----------------------------------------------

Customs officers, through risk assessment, selected a shipment arriving from Cameroon, declared as "1,260 bags of sliced plastics", for inspection. As a result, Customs officers found 201 bags of suspected pangolin scales, with a total weight of about 4,000kg, from the container.
