Remember Socks, the matriarch of a group of painted dogs that our partners at Painted Dog Conservation have been monitoring and tracking? After a long, intense search, the PDC team finally found her by tracking the alpha male Browny (who was successfully collared a few weeks ago). In no time, the team was able to put a protective collar on her, check her vitals, and collect DNA samples. To...

The saiga antelope has evolved to be perfectly adapted to its life in the steppe and semi-arid desert of Central Asia and Russia. It is a relic of Ice Age fauna that included mammoths and saber-tooth cats. The saiga lives in some of the harshest land in the world and migrates long distances between summer and winter lands.

There are more than 30 species of wild cats and they can be found across a variety of habitats, from the Sahara deserts to the Siberian forests. Here’s a look at some of...

There's just one week left of the Titi Post Campaign from our partners at Proyecto Titi! This brilliant project uses recycled plastic to create long lasting fence posts in Colombia. By making the posts this way, trash is repurposed and locals don't have to keep cutting down the trees that the cotton-top tamarins need to live in. Check out the link for more info!

Here's another example of the amazing agility of the Spectacled bear from our partners at Spectacled Bear Conservation Society Peru. While this footage may make your heart skip a beat, the behavior is perfectly natural for the bears. Their long claws make them well equipped for the job and they can often be spotted climbing down steep cliffs to reach snails, a delicious part of their diet!

The highly agile spectacled bear has no trouble making itself comfortable in the tallest trees of their Andean home. A relatively solitary animal, they'll make their retreat to the treetops to avoid other wildlife and humans. Once there, the bears make a platform and can wait days for fruit to ripen, store food, or just rest. Not only that, their jaws and teeth are adapted to rip the park off...

Ethiopian wolves live in cohesive social family packs that communally share and defend an exclusive territory. During breeding season, when pups and nursing females use a den, all pack members guard the den, chase potential predators, and regurgitate or carry rodent prey to feed the pups. Subordinate females may assist the dominant female in suckling the pups. To learn more about this...

Our partners at Niassa Lion Project may have lion in their name but they come across wildlife of all kinds in northern Mozambique. An African civet was spotted in this recent camera trap photo. Civets each have their own unique stripes and spots on their coat, making them easily identifiable like a human finger print.
