Three badger baiters from Rotherham have been sent to prison for 12 weeks after DNA forensic evidence was used for the first time. The RSPCA used the skills of the Scottish Government Science and Advice Service for Scottish Agriculture (SASA) to place the men at the scene of the crime. Antonio Migu
Not so long ago the rhinos of Kaziranga National Park had to rely on rangers equipped with little more than a shot gun or wooden staff for protection. It was only a few years ago the rangers were lucky to have boots to wear for patrols. Soon though that will all change as an application has been put
The Scottish wildcat is one of Britain’s most endangered animals. Once found across the UK, wildcats are now confined to north of the Central Belt in Scotland. They are so rare and elusive that population estimates have been as low as 35, making them 70 times rarer than the giant panda.
The Mediterranean is a tourist hotspot, with millions of people visiting every year. It is also a hotspot for marine biodiversity and home to over 17,000 species – 20% of which occur nowhere else. But in recent years, aliens have invaded the Mediterranean, and are disrupting the ecosystem’s delicate balance.
A new study seems to indicate the environmental science is not as effective or advancing as much as it could and it's the scientists themselves that are holding the science back. The study by Michigan State University says that while environmental scientists are happy to share their results in
In total, almost 560,000 butterflies were spotted by participants. There were big winners this year, with some species increasing their numbers compared to last year. The Common Blue had increased by 55%, the Red Admiral increased by 43%, the Speckled Wood was up by 28% and, for the first time, the Peacock butterfly was the most abundant butterfly in the survey.
The escalating international criminal trade in ivory and rhino horn is well documented and, unfortunately, has seldom been out of the headlines in recent years. Significantly less well known is the exploitation and trafficking of another product derived from a critically endangered species, often c

Despite the tragic death of a motorist who collided with a wild boar near Swindon there should be no widespread cull of the animal.

As recently as the 1980s, vulture populations across Asia were abundant. The Oriental white-backed vulture was so common in India it was probably the most abundant bird of prey in the world. But then vultures began dying all across India and in neighbouring Pakistan and Nepal. Three species of South Asian vultures faced extinction, and the Oriental white-backed vulture declined by 99.9% in just 15 years.
Corncrakes - One of Scotland’s most elusive and endangered breeding birds has had its best breeding season for at least 45 years. The corncrake winters in Africa but breeds in Scotland, hidden in tall vegetation where they can safely raise their chicks. They are so well hidden that a recent RSPB survey counted them not by sight, but by their unique “crex crex” call, which also gives them their scientific name.
