U.S. Journalist Found Alive in Congo; 5 Others Are Killed

KINSHASA, Congo — Five Congo park rangers have been found dead and an American journalist has been found in good condition in the Okapi Wildlife Reserve after going missing during a militia attack, a local official said Sunday.”The American journalist is safe and healthy. She hid in the forest during an attack,” Mambasa territory administrator Alfred Bongwalanga told The Associated Press. “On the other hand, five park guards have been killed.”Bongwalanga said the army found the American overnight Saturday, and called in her rescue. He did not have her name, saying other details would follow. The identity of the assailants is not known, he said.At least 10 people had gone missing after attacks near a security station Friday outside the town of Mambasa in Congo’s northeast Okapi Wildlife Reserve, but six of them, all Congolese rangers, were later found alive, he said.Continue reading the main story […]

Grizzly Bears Belong In Washington’s North Cascades

The famous conservationist, Aldo Leopold, once observed that “relegating grizzlies to Alaska is about like relegating happiness to heaven; one may never get there.” With a newly released plan to restore grizzly bears in Washington’s North Cascades, heaven may have just gotten a little closer for all of us in the Pacific Northwest. Today, grizzlies occupy less than 5 percent of their original range in the contiguous United States. But the National Park Service and U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service are considering what would be a watershed moment for the species: returning the grizzly to its former prominence in Washington’s North Cascades National Park and surrounding public lands, and you have the opportunity to support this proposal. The North Cascades is one of the largest truly wild areas in the lower 48 states, providing the perfect terrain for grizzlies to thrive. The region encompasses more than 2 million acres of federally designated wilderness and is one of six primary grizzly recovery areas identified by the Fish and Wildlife Service. Grizzlies have long made the snow-capped mountains and deep green valleys of the North Cascades their home, and still do – but their numbers are dismal with fewer than 10 bears estimated to occupy the vast area […]

It’s Time To Stop Shortchanging Endangered Species

Endangered species recovery efforts are being dangerously shortchanged, and with a Trump administration and Republican-controlled Congress holding the reins, many of the most imperiled creatures could be pushed to the edge of extinction – or over it. My colleagues and I at the Center for Biological Diversity recently released a first-of-its-kind analysis that found the amount of money the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service receives to recover endangered species – from birds and fish to plants and mammals – is just 3.5 percent of what is needed. That number is frighteningly low, and it is unacceptable. Indeed, roughly one out of every four endangered species received less than $10,000 in 2014, the last year that data is available, and 43 species received less than $1,000 […]
