Monarch butterfly count rises as conservationists warn of extinction

A monarch butterfly clings to a plant at the Monarch Grove Sanctuary in Pacific Grove A tally of monarch butterflies wintering in Mexico rose to 56. 5 million this year from a record low of 34 million last year but conservationists said on Tuesday the increase was too slight to reduce the threat of extinction facing the insect. The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service said last month the popular orange-and-black butterfly may warrant federal Endangered Species Act protections tied to declines in cross-country migrations because of farm-related habitat loss. Sarina Jepsen, endangered species director for the Xerces Society for Invertebrate Conservation, said scientists had predicted that favorable weather in the butterfly's breeding grounds in the U.S. Midwest and elsewhere would result in more monarchs migrating to Mexico this year than the 56.5 million estimated this week by the Mexican government and that country's chapter of the World Wildlife Fund.

Obama to propose protecting U.S. Arctic wildlife refuge from drilling

U.S. President Barack Obama speaks during a visit to the University of Kansas in Lawrence By Julia Edwards WASHINGTON (Reuters) - President Barack Obama will call on Congress to expand protection of Alaska's Arctic refuge where oil and gas drilling is prohibited to 12 million acres (5 million hectares), an area that includes 1.4 million oil-rich acres along the coast. The proposal, unveiled by the Interior Department on Sunday, ran into instant criticism from Republicans and will likely face an uphill battle in Congress, where Republicans now control both chambers. The wilderness designation, the highest level of federal protection under which oil and gas drilling is banned, would be extended to a total of 19.8 million acres (8 million hectares) under the proposal, the Interior Department said. Republicans kicked off the new Congress earlier this month with a bill to approve the Keystone XL pipeline to help move Canadian tar sands oil to refineries on the U.S. Gulf Coast.


After 44 years, Miami orca may edge closer to freedom

Lolita the Killer Whale is seen between shows at the Miami Seaquarium By Zachary Fagenson MIAMI (Reuters) - Lolita, a killer whale that has lived in a tank at Miami's Seaquarium for 44 years, could move a step closer to freedom this week. After decades of campaigning, animal rights activists hope U.S. officials will include the orca on a list of endangered whales that frequent the waters where she was captured, off Washington state. About 1,000 protesters gathered outside Miami Seaquarium this month to demand the release of Lolita, who performs in shows seven days a week and was the subject of the 2003 video documentary "Lolita: Slave to Entertainment." Officials at Miami Seaquarium, where the orca has lived since 1970, say the release plan is dangerous and Lolita would not survive in the wild after so many years in captivity. "This is a non-releasable animal," said curator Robert Rose.


Ivory mafia: how criminal gangs are killing Africa's elephants

Hundreds of Kenyans join conservationists and activists for a march demanding action to stop soaring rhino and elephant poaching, on October 4, 2014 in Nairobi Shortly before 11 am on the last Saturday in May, a heavily laden white Mitsubishi truck pulled into the Fuji Motors East Africa car dealership in an industrial neighbourhood on the northern edge of Mombasa. When Kenyan police officers raided the car lot five days later, they refused a bribe of five million shillings ($55,000, 49,000 euros), seized the ivory and arrested two men. The bust was one of the biggest in the country's history but the suspected mastermind, Feisal Mohamed Ali, aged 46, had escaped. Ali was "alleged to be the ringleader of an ivory smuggling ring in Kenya" according to Interpol, and in November the international police organisation listed him among the world's nine "most wanted environmental criminals".

Love for Florida manatees should have limits, regulators say

Snorkelers interact with a Florida Manatee inside of the Three Sisters Springs in Crystal River, Florida By Letitia Stein CRYSTAL RIVER, Fla. (Reuters) - On winter days, Florida manatees flock by the hundreds to the balmy waters of Three Sisters Springs, drawing crowds of snorkelers and kayakers to the U.S. sanctuary, where people may swim with the endangered species. "It's kind of a madhouse," said Kimberly Sykes, assistant manager of the Crystal River National Wildlife Refuge, which includes Three Sisters Springs. "People are just bumping into manatees, because they can't see them." Manatees flock to warm water sites when temperatures in other places fall below 68 degrees Fahrenheit (20 degrees Celsius). While they want to preserve an experience that has created countless lovers of the species, they also want to protect the manatees, a beloved state symbol in Florida.

Kentucky investigation clears horse trainer of abuse allegations

(Reuters) - A racing Hall of Fame-nominated horse trainer was cleared by Kentucky gaming officials on Thursday of abuse allegations leveled against him by animal-rights group People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA). The Kentucky Horse Racing Commission said in a report published on its website that PETA's claims that Steve Asmussen, his top assistant, Scott Blasi, and other staff had administered various performance enhancing and pain-masking drugs to horses and used electric shock paddles on them were unfounded. "When first reading the allegations and viewing the video, concern was raised," the report said. "After a thorough and rigorous investigation, no evidence of a rule violation was found." Asmussen's nomination to the Hall of Fame was tabled last March while the Kentucky and New York state racing commissions conducted investigations, after PETA posted a video online that was recorded by an undercover investigator working for Asmussen.

Handout photo of eight foot alligator taken from home by Los Angeles Animal Control Department By Michael Fleeman LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - An 8-foot alligator was found next to the carcasses of two cats in the back yard of a suburban Los Angeles home where the reptile had been living illegally since the 1970s, authorities said on Thursday.

Keeping wild animals without a permit is illegal in Los Angeles.

Groups to sue U.S. to stop killing of Yellowstone-area grizzlies

Wildlife advocates notified the Obama administration on Wednesday that they planned to sue to prevent the deaths of grizzly bears in the Yellowstone area tied to elk hunting and livestock grazing on public lands in northwest Wyoming. The Sierra Club and Western Watersheds Project say the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service violated provisions of the Endangered Species Act by permitting as many as four grizzlies to be killed in Grand Teton National Park in Wyoming because of an elk hunt there and as many as 11 in the Bridger-Teton National Forest, where bears sometimes prey on livestock on grazing allotments.
