Great article! They tried everything - and they all seemed to work!

Against all odds, wildlife experts have helped New Jersey's bald eagles rebound from a single pair to a thriving population.

Opinion: There's a good reason to track golden eagles. This editorial has a few factual mistakes, but the writer makes his point.

How bats recognize their own 'bat signals'. Very interesting and comprehensive research. They used tiny microphones!

'Wildlife criminal' goes to jail for smuggling falcon eggs

http://www.theguardian.com/environment/2010/aug/19/wildlife-criminal-jail-smuggling-eggs

Quote:  Judge Christopher Hodson said: "I quote the words of a lord justice of appeal (Lord Justice Sedley) when he says, 'environmental crime, if established, strikes not only at a locality and its population but in some measure to the planet and its future'. I adopt these words to express the gravity of what you did. A substantial term of imprisonment needs to be imposed to punish you and deter others."
