LEATHERBACK SEA TURTLE Global Oceans Unknown Once a male leatherback sea turtle struggles from its egg and makes its way to the sea as a 4-inch (10 cm) hatchling, it may never again return to land during its 80-year lifetime. Although they are air-breathing animals born on land, leatherbacks, like all sea turtles, spend their lives in the ocean. Females return to land only to lay their eggs.
Species Description and Range
The leatherback is the largest sea turtle. It can grow up to 6.5 feet (2 m) long and weigh 1,400 pounds (636 kg). The leatherback gets its name from its shell, which is like a thick leathery skin, with the texture of hard rubber. It is a circumglobal species, meaning that it can range throughout almost all the oceans of the world. It nests on tropical beaches in the Atlantic, Indian, and Pacific Oceans. Once abundant throughout the world's oceans, all eight species of sea turtles are now threatened or endangered. Leatherback populations have plummeted in recent years. In the 1980s the worldwide population was estimated at nearly 100,000. Breeding

African Wild Dog Name: African Wild Dog Scientific name: Lycaon pictus Range: South Africa and east of Sahara Habitat: Grasslands, Savannas, and Woodlands of East Africa Status: Endangered Diet in the wild: Warthogs, zebras, water bugs, ostriches, rhinos, Grants Gazelle, elephants Diet in the zoo: Carnivorous diet Location in the zoo: Not currently on exhibit Physical description Wild dogs have a canine body shape like a wolf's, but they have larger, bat like ears and white tipped tails. They have splotches of black, yellow, white, and dark brown, with no two dogs marked exactly the same. General information Wild dogs have a highly developed social structure. They live in packs that vary from 10 to 15 animals, including males, females, and young. Their packs are nomadic, and they roam across a range of 1 to 30 miles a day. Members of the pack cooperate when hunting and raising their young. Normally, only the highest ranking male and female breed. However, other pack members help protect and raise the pups. Wild dogs greet one another through vocalizations, body posture, and licking. They have a ritualized midday greeting ceremony of squeaking and thrusting their muzzles into one anther's faces. Wild dogs are vulnerable to the diseases of domestic dogs from nearby human communities. They are also threatened by ranchers and trophy hunters.

attempt to control wild dogs and conserve for protection under the threatened speciesConservation Act recovery plans under endangered species protection laws
The Colong Foundation for Wilderness Dingo? Friend or Foe? Current wild dogs management in NSW aims to protect Dingoes in their core habitat areas. But, as the Regulatory Review Committee of the NSW Parliament recently noted, “it is however anomalous that the main NSW initiative to conserve existing Dingo populations is being undertaken under an Act that will classify them, statewide, as a pest requiring eradication.” This intended protection program will be through plans developed by Rural Lands Protection Boards that are concerned with stock losses, not Dingo conservation. Aggressive eradication of wild dogs and tokenistic conservation efforts are not going to reverse the extinction of the Dingo, which is primarily caused by interbreeding with feral dogs. Meanwhile, the NSW National Parks and Wildlife Service is conducting lethal experiments on endangered Quolls in the wilderness areas of Kosciuszko to justify its wild dog management to farmer critics and is preparing environmental studies to support its aerial 1080 poison baiting programs in the parks of northern NSW.

The Wildlife Science Center (WSC) is the proud participant in the Species Survival Plan for the red wolf and for the Mexican gray wolf. Both were reduced to near extinction before public and private efforts to restore these predators. The Wildlife Science Center is a proud participant in the Species Survival Plan (SSP) for the red wolf and the Mexican gray wolf. Both were reduced to near extinction before governmental and private efforts to restore them began. Conservation trapping efforts in the 1970's located only 14 reproductively viable red wolves and 7 Mexican gray wolves; these animals formed the base for all future endeavors to keep extinction at bay. In 1980, both animals were effectively considered extirpated from the wild. This meant that their survival would rely completely on captive facilities. Reintroduction projects for both Mexican gray and red wolves depend upon cooperators like the WSC to provide safe housing for education, exhibit, and breeding. WSC is also home to two New Guinea Highland dogs. Preliminary research has revealed that this wild dog is unique. The Center's provision of space is done so with the hopes that someday these wild dogs can be restored to their native land.

Wolves are back! So convincingly, in fact, that federal officials believe the gray wolf is now ready to stand on its own in some parts of the country without the protection of the Endangered Species Act, and to thrive with lesser protection in other regions. It's an extraordinary comeback for an animal that had been virtually exterminated from the 48 states by the 1920s. For nearly two decades, the National Wildlife Federation has played a pivotal role in that comeback, first leading the fight to gain Endangered Species Act protection for wolves and then to restore populations to the Yellowstone region and central Idaho. In recognition of NWF's efforts, Federation President Mark Van Putten represented the only environmental group invited to participate in the recent ceremony in which Interior Secretary Bruce Babbitt and U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service Director Jamie Clark announced plans to reduce federal involvement in wolf management.

SOCIAL BENEFITS Endangered Species
Every day, approximately 100 living species disappear due to hunting, poaching, competition between humans and other animals for scarce resources, and, most of all, loss of habitat. With the advent of cloning, wildlife conservationists have a new tool in their efforts to protect endangered species from extinction. Cloning is the new last line of defense for these animals; after habitat preservation, poaching control, and captive breeding. Although those other methods are more efficient than cloning, they don't always succeed (for more information about this, see "What impact will cloning have on genetic diversity?" in our Ethical FAQs ). In those instances, cloning may be the only way to prevent the loss of a species forever. in vitro fertilization, IVF, and cloning) to organizations that work to repopulate endangered canids, including varieties of wolves, foxes, and wild dogs. The first threatened animal to be cloned was the cattle-like Asian gaur ( Bos frontalis ). Advanced Cell Technology (ACT), a Massachusetts-based company, used its experience in cattle cloning to produce a gaur clone using a cow as a surrogate mother (when cloning a threatened species, researchers perform an "interspecies embryo transfer," which means the cloned embryo is transferred to a surrogate mother of a different, though related, species). Noah, the gaur, was born in January 2001, and died of dysentery two days later.

KEEPING CAPTIVE / EXOTIC WILDLIFE Introduction People who want to acquire various wildlife species frequently contact MassWildlife for information . Some people already have an animal and may be disappointed or frustrated to learn they cannot lawfully keep it in Massachusetts. To avoid such problems and concerns, the public is encouraged to learn the laws pertaining to the possession of wildlife in Massachusetts before they acquire an animal. A summary of these laws is below. This is only a summary and people should refer to the appropriate Massachusetts General Laws (MGL) and the Code of Massachusetts Regulations (CMR) for details. Background: Massachusetts pet stores are inspected and regulated by the Department of Food and Agriculture but the stores must follow MassWildlife laws regarding the animals that they may sell. Purchasers can reasonably assume that an animal for sale in a Massachusetts pet store may be lawfully sold and possessed. Do not assume that animals for sale in other states, including those states adjoining Massachusetts, are lawful in Massachusetts. Similarly, be wary of animals advertised for sale on the Internet or in newspapers. These animals may be lawful at the point of origin, but not in Massachusetts.

SITE MAP WILDLIFE NEWS Wild Net Africa News Archive Future of the endangered African Wild Dogs Looking Brighter after Big Litter. (16 September, 1998) Even with the births, Africa's most threatened predator faces extinction
The number of African wild dogs - a critically endangered species - in Zululand's Hluhluwe-Umfolozi Game Reserve has doubled with the recent birth of a litter of twelve puppies. The arrival of the litter is particularly good news, not just for the Reserve, but also for the species which had reached the shadow of death's door because of human persecution, disease and severe lack of living space. With only 5 000 of these animals left in the world, the wild dog is in big trouble. It is Africa's most endangered predator. The recent births in the Umfolozi section of the Reserve follow the introduction less than a year ago of two adult males and two females from the Kruger National Park and a private reserve in Mpumalanga. Although more than twenty dogs were released in the Reserve in the early 1980's, their numbers had dwindled to just six towards the end of last year. Some had died and others had moved out of the Reserve to establish new packs, while the small pack in Hluhluwe had not bred for nearly four years. However, the Hluhluwe pack produced a litter late last year and now the Umfolozi pack has gone ahead a produced a bumper litter. Michael Somers, head of the Zululand wild dog project, said he was extremely heartened by the latest addition. However, he warned that the population could plummet if the pack came into contact with the domestic dogs infected with rabies.
