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.
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.
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.

WCS & Blackfeet Nation Partner To Bring Bison Home | WCS
http://wcs.org Home Again! WCS and Blackfeet Nation have partnered to bring buffalo back to their original homeland. This historic event cannot be overstated in its significance to the Blackfeet people and all tribes and First Nations in their quest to restore bison to native lands and re-establish ties to this cultural icon. WCS, which runs the Bronx Zoo, has been involved in bison conservation for more than a century. The bison calves transferred are descended from those captured on Blackfeet land in 1873 that became the noted “Pablo-Allard” herd. Twenty of the animals will live at the Oakland Zoo this fall as part of the zoo’s ‘California Trail’ expansion.

Ocean Wonders: Sharks! | NY Aquarium
http://www.nyaquarium.com Discover the sea that never sleeps! The Wildlife Conservation (WCS) is thrilled to unveil its stunning new Donald Zucker and Barbara Hrbek Zucker Ocean Wonders: Sharks! exhibit at the New York Aquarium. The three-story, 57,500-square-foot exhibit building, with 9 dynamic galleries, will drive awareness of the importance of sharks to the health of the world’s ocean; educate visitors about the severe threats sharks face; and inspire guests to protect the surprisingly diverse and beautiful marine wildlife here in New York. Each year, hundreds of thousands of visitors, and tens of thousands of students in the aquarium’s education programs will learn to value and protect our ocean. The exhibit includes 18 species of sharks and rays and more than 115 other species of marine life. It is the first exhibit that focuses on the marine life found in the New York Bight from Cape May, NJ, to Montauk, NY. In July 2013 the NYC Public Design Commission recognized Ocean Wonders: Sharks!, with an Award for Design Excellence.

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.

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

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

The Life and Death of Elephants | Narrated by Glenn Close
http:///www.96elephants.org In this short film narrated by Glenn Close, we learn that elephants are an ancient species that have inhabited our planet for 30 million years. Self-aware, playful and highly intelligent, they form strong social and family bonds and cherish and protect their young. Today however, killed at the staggering rate of 35,000 animals per year to feed an insatiable global demand for ivory, elephants need our help. This World Wildlife Day, join us to #StopWildlifeTrafficking and save these majestic animals.
