WCS Brand Manifesto: We Stand For Wildlife
http://wcs.org The world is changing. We can no longer do conservation as usual. Today, as we unveil our new strategy to conserve the world's largest wild places in 15 priority regions — home to more than 50% of the world's biodiversity — one important shift for us includes inspiring millions to join us as conservation champions. Our new website and logo will help us engage many more as We Stand for Wildlife. What will remain the same is our biggest strength: The relentless commitment of an extraordinary, dedicated staff to sound science, measurable results, and pragmatic conservation in our zoos and aquarium in NYC and our field programs across the globe. Join us in this effort at wcs.org.
We Stand for Wildlife | WCS
http://wcs.org As human beings, we connect to nature with a force as strong as the pull of gravity. We depend on nature. Zoos, aquariums, botanical gardens, national parks, the conservation movement—indeed, the Wildlife Conservation Society—were all created with a desire to maintain and strengthen that connection. Our human footprint keeps growing. In the time since the Renaissance, the global human population has grown from a half billion to over seven billion. By 2050 that number could reach 10 billion, filling nearly all the lands and scouring nearly all the seas. Our movements and actions are—and will continue to be—the prevailing reality for every other living thing on the planet. More than half of the people on the planet live in cities, where zoos and aquariums provide a window into nature. Our demands for food and water have a global reach; our choices have an impact on the planet. Amidst these exploding pressures on our Earth and its limited resources, we have developed a strategy that we call WCS: 2020. We launched a new website, brand identity, and logo to support it. The "W" stands for wildlife. Saving wildlife is our history and our future. With this strategy, we renew our commitment to the protection of the world's wildlife.

Gharial Conservation at the Bronx Zoo
http://bronxzoo.com BRONX, NEW YORK – April 5, 2017 – The WCS’s (Wildlife Conservation Society) Bronx Zoo recently added eight Indian gharials (Gavialis gangeticus) to the river habitat in JungleWorld, and they made their public debut just in time for Spring Break in New York City. This is the first time the Bronx Zoo has exhibited the species since 1992. JungleWorld opened in 1985 and is one of the marquee exhibits at the Bronx Zoo. It is an award-winning indoor Asian rainforest that features several multi-species habitats that create a total immersion experience for guests. Gharial are a slender-snouted crocodilian native to northern Indian subcontinent. They are classified as Critically Endangered by the International Union for the Conservation of Nature (IUCN). Eighty percent of the remaining world population live in the Chambal River in India – the last stronghold for the species. WCS has been supporting gharial conservation initiatives in India since the 1970s and continues to sponsor the Gharial Telemetry Project through the Gharial Conservation Alliance, which is managed by the Madras Crocodile Bank Trust Center for Herpetology (MCBT). Through protection and study of gharials in the Chambal Sanctuary, scientists now have a better understanding of how these evolutionarily unique crocodilians use their environment and the threats they face. Additionally, the project has identified key feeding, nesting and breeding areas for the species. The eight gharials in JungleWorld were hatched at the MCBT and brought to the Bronx Zoo as part of the ongoing conservation partnership.

Changtang From Above | WCS China
WCS is working on the ground to conserve China's largest wild place - Changtang, a reserve more than 700,000km2 in size that harbors some of the most unique biodiversity in the world. Across the globe, WCS uses science to fill critical knowledge gaps and derive sound conservation plans for flagship species. The footage shows that field studies were implemented to understand the distribution and abundance of snow leopards in this region, as well as the community's attitude and potential threats to this species. The status of mating grounds for Tibetan antelopes was another focus during this survey period. WCS China has a long history in the research and conservation of this beautiful, migratory ungulate that is endemic to the Tibetan plateau. Based on these efforts, we will further implement multiple projects empowering local communities to develop more resilient, wildlife-friendly livelihoods while strengthening the government's capacity regarding the reserve management and wildlife-human conflict mitigation.

Bronx Zoo's Little Penguins
http://bronxzoo.com Named for their small size and characteristic bluish hue, little penguins are also known as blue penguins, little blue penguins, and fairy penguins. Full-grown adults are only about 13 inches tall and weigh 2 to 3 pounds. They are the smallest of the 18 penguin species and native to coastal southern Australia and New Zealand. These are the first little penguins to be on exhibit at the Bronx Zoo and there are only three facilities in the U.S. that currently have them. All of the birds in the colony were hatched at the Taronga Zoo in Sydney, Australia and brought to the Bronx Zoo as part of a breeding program. Approximately 15 penguins a year hatch at Taronga, making it the most successful little penguin breeding program in the world. The Bronx Zoo penguins will help ensure continued genetic diversity in the little penguin populations in the U.S.

96 Elephants: Vintage Horror Show - The True Cost of Ivory
http://96elephants.org/horrorshow Did you know that the popular PBS series, Antiques Roadshow, regularly appraises ivory carvings on air? Owners of the artifacts may be hoping for a big pay day, but we already know what they are worth: dead elephants. With African forest elephants on the brink of extinction, placing a value on ivory sends the wrong message to the American public and especially to poachers: that elephants are worth more dead than alive. Tell the show to stop appraising ivory and help stamp out the black market for ivory in America. Go to 96elephants.org/horrorshow
Shocking Collapse of Grauer's Gorilla Population | WCS
http://wcs.org The Grauer’s gorilla, the world’s largest primate, is now critically endangered. Recent surveys by WCS have revealed a 77% population decline across its range. More than thirteen thousand individuals have been lost in just the last twenty years – with fewer than four thousand remaining in the wild today. This devastating result means that both gorilla species and all four gorilla subspecies are now Critically Endangered. The loss is due primarily to the illegal hunting of the species for bushmeat, particularly around mining concessions that are often deep in the forests. Working with help from the Congolese Institute for the Conservation of Nature and Fauna and Flora International, the biological surveys took place across a large swath of war torn eastern Democratic Republic of Congo. Primary funding for this range-wide analysis provided by Arcus Foundation through the Jane Goodall Institute, KfW, UNESCO, USAID, and US Fish and Wildlife Service. For a full list of donors, go to WCS.org While this video was being finalized, the chief park warden of Kahuzi Biega notified WCS that Oscar Mianziro, one of the rangers who monitored the habituated gorillas, was killed on March 31, 2016, by armed rebels in an ambush on the park. Our deepest condolences go to his family and to his colleagues. Helping these courageous men and women is vital. Please consider supporting them and the challenging work they do.

Wild Haven of Cambodia
http://www.wcs.org http://www.wcscambodia.org http://www.samveasna.org/ Birdwatchers from across Asia and beyond flock to Cambodia's forests for a glimpse of two of the world's rarest birds: the giant ibis and its cousin the white-shouldered ibis. Each year, the birders follow the birds to their nesting grounds at the outskirts of Tmatboey, a rural Cambodian village some 200 miles north of Phnom Penh. Under the protection of the Tmatboey villagers, the ibises breed, nest, and raise their chicks. In return for their contribution to the birds' conservation, WCS worked with the community to develop an eco-tourism project. This partnership has helped bring the village a new perspective on their sacred forest.

96 Elephants: Year One of a Global Movement
http://www.96elephants.org One year ago, WCS launched the 96 Elephants campaign to stop the killing, stop the trafficking, and stop the demand for illegal ivory. Since then, half a million of you have taken action, from signing petitions to contacting state and federal officials, posting on social media or making a donation to support elephant-saving programs. We have 160 partners and supporters in all 50 states and 194 countries. And it is making a real difference for elephants, with more trained park guards on the ground, increased aerial anti-poaching surveillance flights and sniffer dog units, and new and stronger government partnerships. Take a quick look at this short video to celebrate all we’ve accomplished together in this first year alone. As you can see, we've claimed significant victories for elephants but this battle is far from finished. There is so much more for this community to do in the coming year but for now, thank you for joining the herd. Together we will not be remembered as the generation that let elephants go extinct.

Burmese Star Tortoise Makes Meteoric Comeback | WCS Myanmar
https://newsroom.wcs.org/ Star Tortoise Makes Meteoric Comeback Considered ecologically extinct in the wild, the Burmese star tortoise population has grown to more than 14,000 individuals in Myanmar, and is currently growing at 37 percent per year thanks to the efforts of WCS, Turtle Survival Alliance and the Government of Myanmar's Forest Department at several captive breeding centers. Some tortoises already released into protected habitats in Myanmar's central dry zone. WCS’s Bronx Zoo helped design breeding centers and provided husbandry and veterinary expertise to care for tortoises “This is the modern day equivalent of saving the bison from extinction. A team of conservationists spearheaded an aggressive captive breeding effort, and have brought an animal back from the brink to where it now has the potential to be reintroduced into the wild in large numbers.” – Steven Platt, WCS Herpetologist, Myanmar Program
