Educational Series: We Are In The Middle Of An Amphibian Crisis

By Nick Engelfried Often overlooked and misunderstood, amphibians are perhaps the single most endangered group of animals on the planet. The plight of frogs, toads, salamanders, and their relatives may not receive as much attention as more charismatic animals–but fully 40% of the world’s approximately 8,000 amphibian species are threatened […]

Educational Series: Countless Animals Are In Danger From Climate Change

By Nick Engelfried There’s no denying it (though some politicians and corporations try): human-caused climate change is here and it’s changing our world in fundamental ways. The major consequences for people are well known and include rising sea levels inundating coastal cities, more intense hurricanes threatening our coasts, droughts and […]

Educational Series: Animal Homes Are Burning In The Amazon

By Nick Engelfried The Amazon Rainforest is the world’s largest tropical forest, a global stronghold of biodiversity, and one of our best defences against runaway climate change. From huge jaguars, to pygmy marmosets small enough to perch on your hand, the Amazon is home to some of the planet’s most […]

Educational Series: Madagascar’s Unique, Endangered Animals Need Help

By Nick Engelfried Located off the east coast of Africa, the island of Madagascar has been separated from the mainland for approximately 160 million years–since well before the dinosaurs went extinct. During this vast span of time one of the world’s most diverse communities of plants and animals has evolved […]

Educational Series: Gentle Giraffes Are Being Driven Toward Extinction

By Nick Engelfried At up to almost nineteen feet tall and sometimes weighing well over 2,000 pounds, giraffes are among the most impressive and charismatic of African wildlife species. These immense animals share Africa’s savannas, woodlands, and even some desert areas with elephants, rhinoceroses, lions, and other equally famous animals. […]

Educational Series: Imperiled, Amazing Reptiles Deserve Our Help

By Nick Engelfried With their scaly skin, penetrating gaze, and some species’ sharp claws or venomous fangs, reptiles may not be the world’s most cute or cuddly creatures. However, despite being radically different from the dogs, cats, and other mammals most of us are used to interacting with, reptiles include […]

Educational Series: Help Stop Wild Animal Tragedies This Summer

By Nick Engelfried It’s the time of year when families across the nation get ready to participate in one of our country’s best summertime traditions: the summer vacation. Over the next few months thousands of people will take to the road to visit national and state parks, national forests, and […]

Educational Series: Animal Welfare Act Saves Creatures in Need

By Nick Engelfried On a summer evening in 1965, a Dalmatian named Pepper disappeared from the farm where she lived with her loving human family, the Lakavages. She was never to be seen again by the Lackavages, who had adopted her from a nearby kennel. Pepper had thrived in her […]

Educational Series: Apes: Our Intelligent, Endangered Relative

They’re our closest living relatives of the animal world, some sharing almost 99% of our DNA. They are far more intelligent than scientists once realized, with elaborate social structures and family networks. They make sophisticated use of tools. And they are among the most endangered mammals on the planet. These […]

Educational Series: Help Wildlife Survive in Your Yard

No matter where you live, you can help animals without travelling any farther than your own backyard, balcony, or windowsill. Making small changes to the ways we care for our homes and gardens can have a real effect on animals who live nearby–and this holds true whether you have a […]

Educational Series: Animals of the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge Are Threatened by Oil Drills

At 19.3 million acres, the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge in Alaska is one of the last truly huge, intact ecosystems in North America.

Educational Series: Wild, Majestic Rhinos Are Being Driven Toward Extinction

With their huge size and impressive one-to-two horns protruding from their snouts, rhinos are among the most majestic and charismatic creatures in the world.

Educational Series: Abused Animals Are Counting On Your Vote

In laboratories all over the U.S. animals including cats, dogs, rodents, and primates are injected with toxic chemicals, force-fed poisons, and kept in cramped, barren cages as part of routine tests done to prepare new cosmetics for the market. Most of these animals are eventually killed–either during tests or after […]

Educational Series: Bees – Nature’s Heroic Pollinators are Under Attack

On almost any warm, sunny day from spring through early fall, in any outdoor location with flowers and a landscape free of chemical pesticides, you can hear bees buzzing as they fly from blossom to blossom.

Educational Series: Saving Vanishing Wildlife From Oblivion

A bald eagle soaring over a wild river; a mother grizzly bear and her cubs roaming through one of the last great tracts of unbroken forest; a sea otter frolicking through a coastal kelp forest; all of these awe-inspiring sights were at some point in imminent danger of vanishing forever. […]

Educational Series: Animal Trafficking is Driving Species to Extinction

When authorities in Madagascar recently responded to a complaint about an overwhelming odor coming from an abandoned house, they discovered nearly 10,000 critically endangered radiated tortoises crawling in their own feces and slowly succumbing to dehydration. The surviving tortoises were taken to a rescue facility managed by the Turtle Survival […]

Educational Series: Wildlife is Drowning in Plastic Pollution

It’s used to wrap food at the supermarket, bag store merchandise, and package items for the mail: plastic seems to be everywhere and much of it is completely unnecessary. Have you ever opened a box from Amazon or other online retailers to find most of the space inside taken up […]

Killing Wildlife on Public Lands

For more than a century, public lands in the United States have been a refuge for some of our nation’s most iconic and majestic wildlife species. When Yellowstone National Park was first established in 1872, it protected species like bison that were on the verge of extinction. Yellowstone and other […]

Educational Series: Oceanic Noise Pollution

70 years ago, on July 26, 1946, the United States military set off a nuclear bomb underwater to test the effectiveness of their submarines to this kind of attack. The test went horribly wrong. The blast began as a giant hot bubble of gas that blew a 30 foot deep […]

Educational Series: Stopping the Dolphin Slaughter

It has been 8 years since the release of the documentary ‘The Cove’ that highlighted the dolphin slaughter in Taiji, Japan. We dove in to see what has changed since the spotlight was put on this horrific annual event. The changes we found were not what we had hoped. The […]
