  • How Tire Shredding Protects Wildlife

    One of the most revolutionary inventions in the history of mankind was the wheel, and the best upgrade to that invention was the rubber tire, which overcame the limitations of wooden or metal wheels and made it possible to have smooth rides at fast speeds. However, there is a significant drawback to using rubber tires: eventually, they get too worn out to be useful as tires anymore and have to ...

  • Bird Control in New Construction Sites

    When excavating a construction site you’re bound to come across numerous obstacles. While each one has its own level of difficulty to overcome, arguably the hardest to conquer is relocating wildlife from the site. Today we’re featuring a guest article from Emily Matlovich, writer for CADdetails’ blog  ...

  • Bringing aeroconservation down to Earth

    From migrating birds to pollinating bees to seed-dispersing plants, thousands of species depend on the quality of the aerosphere­ — the layer of air that surrounds our planet. Despite this, aircraft, wind farms, drones, telecommunication towers and other anthropogenic infrastructure increasingly crowd this critical habitat. Current species conservation efforts are generally focused on ...

  • The Curious Divide between Conservation Science and IA

    Since returning to academia, I have been struck by a particular disjuncture between the biodiversity sciences and IA practice in my country, Namibia. Having worked across Africa, my suspicion is that it probably applies to the entire continent, perhaps even broader. Allow me to expand. I had my wildlife scientist hat on a few weeks ago at a southern African symposium on wildlife tracking and ...

  • The surprising link between the tapirs of Costa Rica and climate change

    New studies suggest that protecting tapirs and other large seed-eating mammals is key to preserving carbon storage in rain forests. Esteban Brenes-Mora has been obsessed with tapirs — large, pig-like jungle dwellers — for as long as he can remember. It started with a sticker book his grandfather gave him as a child, and continued through zoo visits and into his ...

A distinctively American species, the coyote has lived in North America for more than a million years. But despite widespread attempts at eradication since the early 19th-century, coyotes have adapted and are now well-established in 49 states, including most major metropolitan ...

  • If lead ammunition is bad for people and the environment, why do we still use it?

    Concerns about regulation, skepticism about the science and misperceptions about costs are slowing the transition to nontoxic alternatives. Andrea Goodnight knows firsthand what lead poisoning looks like. A veterinarian at the Oakland Zoo, Goodnight treats endangered California condors when testing shows dangerous levels of the toxic metal in their blood. If ...

  • Are we going about chemical risk assessment for the aquatic environment the wrong way?

    The goal of protecting the aquatic environment through testing thousands of chemicals against hundreds of aquatic species with thousands of endpoints while also considering mixtures is impossible given the present resources. Much of the impetus for studies on micropollutants, such as pharmaceuticals, came from the topic of endocrine disruption in wild fish. But despite concern over reductions ...

  • An in vitro method for determining the bioaccessibility of pharmaceuticals in wildlife

    Wildlife can be exposed to human pharmaceuticals via prey that have accumulated the compounds from wastewater, surface water, sediment and soil. One factor affecting internal absorption of pharmaceuticals is bioaccessibility, the proportion of the compound that enters solution in the gastrointestinal tract. Currently, the bioaccessibility of most pharmaceuticals in prey remains unknown for ...

  • Can wetlands save Saint-Louis from drowning?

    Tackling the biggest coastal resilience challenge in West Africa The Senegal River is the second largest river in West Africa and forms the natural border between Senegal and Mauritania for much of its course as it flows west towards the Atlantic Ocean. At the coastal delta it flows past the low river banks of the city of Saint-Louis. From there it turns south, running alongside a ...

  • Contaminants of emerging concern in reverse osmosis brine concentrate from indirect/direct water reuse applications

    Water shortage is becoming more common due to droughts and global population increases resulting in the increasing popularity of water reuse to create new water sources. Reverse osmosis (RO) membrane systems are popular in these applications since they can produce drinking water quality effluent. Unfortunately, RO systems have the drawback of generating concentrate streams that contain ...

  • How to protect sharks and humans at the same time

    In case you somehow missed it, Shark Week has once again descended upon us. The annual summer tradition created by the Discovery Channel in 1988 to raise awareness of sharks through its programming has in recent years seen its hashtag, #SharkWeek, explode across social media. Although some of the fictional content ...

  • Evaluating the role of coastal habitats and sea‐level rise in hurricane risk mitigation: An ecological economic assessment method and application to a business decision

    Businesses may be missing opportunities to account for ecosystem services in their decisions because they do not have methods to quantify and value ecosystem services. We developed a method to quantify and value coastal protection and other ecosystem services in the context of a cost‐benefit analysis of hurricane risk mitigation options for a business. We first analyze linked biophysical and ...

  • Linking mechanistic toxicology to population models in forecasting recovery from chemical stress: A case study from Jackfish Bay, Ontario, Canada

    Recovery of fish and wildlife populations after stressor mitigation serves as a basis for evaluating remediation success. Unfortunately, effectively monitoring population status on a routine basis can be difficult and costly. In the present study, the authors describe a framework that can be applied in conjunction with field monitoring efforts (e.g., through effects‐based monitoring programs) ...

  • Towards Ecosystem Based Sediment Quality Guidelines for PCB

    To investigate whether Sediment Quality Guidelines (SQG) for PCBs in Canada and British Columbia achieve their objective of protecting ecosystems, we measured and compiled concentrations of PCB congeners in sediments, bivalves, crustaceans, fish and marine mammals from three areas off the pacific coast of British Columbia, Canada. The concentration data showed that while PCB concentrations in ...

  • Wilderness protection and the art of compromise

    Wilderness legislation in the U.S. increasingly requires broad support from a variety of constituents who may or may not see eye to eye On Sept. 3, 1964, U.S. President Lyndon B. Johnson signed the Wilderness Act into law, officially setting aside 9.1 million acres of federal land “where the earth and its community of life are untrammeled by man, where man himself is a visitor ...
