Fury as mother bear dies after capture in Italian Alps

One of the handful of brown bears in the Italian alps has died after being tranquilised One of the handful of brown bears living in the Italian Alps has died after being tranquilised for capture in an operation ordered after she mauled a mushroom hunter. In an incident that enfuriated animal rights groups, the 19-year-old female, Daniza, was knocked out so that she could be transferred to a more remote part of the Trento region of northern Italy, a spokesman for the provincial government said. Carla Rocchi, the chair of the Italian Association for the Protection of Animals (ENPA), added: "This didn't happen by chance or by accident. Local officials had been trying to capture Daniza since August 15, when she injured Daniele Maturi, a local man who chanced upon her and her two cubs in woods near the small village of Pinzolo, sparking a national debate over the wisdom of efforts to conserve a colony of bears in the Alps.


New curbs on trade in threatened sharks

A hammerhead shark swims in a large tank at the Georgia Aquarium in Atlanta. The 178 members of the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species (CITES) agreed in March 2013 to tighten regulations on the trade of the three types of hammerhead shark, the porbeagle and oceanic whitetip shark, and two types of manta ray. "The listing was a victory for science over politics," Andy Cornish, who heads a shark preservation initiative backed by WWF and wildlife trade monitoring network Traffic, said in a statement. More than 70 million sharks are killed worldwide every year, according to WWF, with high demand for shark fins in Asia the biggest driver of the overfishing. Traffic has estimated the total value of the shark fin trade at more than $480 million per year, with the fish hunted for their meat, leather, liver oil and cartilage.

Endangered Pupfish Could Vanish in 30 Years, Egg by Egg

Endangered Pupfish Could Vanish in 30 Years, Egg by Egg Kept under lock and key, the Devils Hole pupfish (Cyprinodon diabolis) has teetered on the brink of extinction since it made the federal list of endangered species in 1967. In April, biologists announced that Ash Meadows pupfish had laid eggs in captivity for the first time. Even with the initial success at Ash Meadows, wildlife officials continue to collect fish eggs from the original dwellers in Devils Hole cavern. This poses a risk to the shrinking pupfish population, however.

No charges after ship strike killed humpback whale off Alaska

By Steve Quinn JUNEAU Alaska (Reuters) - A ship strike killed a protected humpback whale off Kodiak, Alaska, but an investigation could not conclude whether a state ferry was responsible and no charges will be filed, federal officials said on Wednesday. The whales are protected under the Marine Mammal Protection Act and under the Endangered Species Act. Doug Meecum, deputy regional administrator with the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, said there was no evidence of any violation of laws, regulations or procedures. Kate Wynne, a marine mammal specialist for the University of Alaska Sea Grant Program, led the necropsy in late July.

Florida wildlife regulators clamp down on invasive lionfish

To go with Reuters Life! LIONFISH-CARIBBEAN/INVASION By Zachary Fagenson MIAMI (Reuters) - Florida wildlife regulators on Wednesday banned lionfish breeding as part of a struggle to control the invasive species that devours other fish and threatens coastal ecosystems. The state prohibited the possession of lionfish eggs and larvae as well, after Florida last month became the first state in United States to outlaw importation of the barbed fish. Bringing lionfish into Florida is now punishable by up to a year in prison and a $1,000 fine. "Every change that encourages removal is a step toward successfully limiting the negative impacts lionfish have on native fish and wildlife," said Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission Executive Director Nick Wiley in a statement.

Montana governor issues sage grouse conservation plan

Montana's governor on Tuesday signed an executive order creating a habitat conservation plan for sage grouse in a bid to keep management of the imperiled bird in state hands rather than see it come under strict federal Endangered Species Act protections. The greater sage-grouse, a chicken-sized bird dependant on shrinking sagebrush ecosystems in Montana and 10 other Western states, is at the center of a battle that pits environmentalists against industries such as ranching and energy development. "Montanans recognize that it is in the best interest of our state, its economy and our quality of life to maintain state management of the greater sage-grouse," Governor Steve Bullock, a Democrat, said in a statement. Montana is the latest of core sage-grouse states, including Idaho, Nevada, Utah and Wyoming, to craft a plan aimed at increasing populations of the bird to avoid federal listing.

California blue whales, once nearly extinct, back at historical levels

Blue Whales are seen in this undated handout photo By Dan Whitcomb LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - California blue whales, the largest animals on Earth once driven to near extinction by whaling, have made a remarkable comeback to near historic, 19th-century levels, according to a University of Washington study released on Friday. The recovery makes California blue whales - which study authors say now number about 2,200, or 97 percent of historical levels - the only population of blue whales known to have recovered from whaling. "The recovery of California blue whales from whaling demonstrates the ability of blue whale populations to rebuild under careful management and conservation measures," said Cole Monnahan, a University of Washington doctoral student and lead author of the study. Despite the comeback, the whales - which as adults can reach nearly 100 feet (30 meters) in length and weigh 190 tons (172 tonnes), twice as much as the largest known dinosaur - are still being struck by ships off the California coast at numbers above allowable U.S.
