Rescued yearling grizzly cub returns to the wild near Cranbrook via BC pilot pro

Littlefoot, a grizzly yearling, has been released back into the wild near Cranbrook, BC. He was found this spring severely underweight after being orphaned prior to hibernation last fall. After being cared for by the Northern Lights Wildlife Society (NLWS, www.wildlifeshelter.com) since June, Littlefoot has gone from a scrawny 28 pounds to a hearty 98 pounds. He was released yesterday away from human activity near where he was found. Littlefoot has been fitted with a satellite collar and will be monitored for the next 18 months.

Focus sur la Zambie : nouvelle étape de franchie pour Chodoba, l’éléphant orphel

Le mois dernier, nous avons assisté à un événement inédit dans le parc national Kafue, en Zambie.

Chodoba, l’éléphant orphelin de neuf ans que nous avons réhabilité dans le cadre du Projet d’orphelinat pour les éléphants, a été vu en train de tisser des liens avec des éléphants sauvages à proximité d’un point d’eau appelé Chintumba Pool, à deux pas de Camp Phoenix.
