This shy Caribbean lizard is now a coveted pet—and critically endangered. How did this happen? Poachers have used scientific reports as maps to track down and catch the lizard. It’s not the only one.

A little black bear cub named Dudley is the newest resident at a Manitoba bear rescue that launched last year.

Dudley was three months old and weighed roughly six pounds when he came to Black Bear Rescue Manitoba in April, said Julie Woodyer, spokesperson for the rescue and campaign director at Zoocheck, a wildlife protection group.

Since then, the young bear has been thriving, she said.

"He's doing extremely well at our centre," Woodyer said. "He's up already to 16 pounds, and just behaving like a perfectly healthy little black bear cub."

He's also working on getting to know a playmate: Woodyer said the team is slowly introducing Dudley to Casper, another orphaned bear who came to the rescue earlier this year. The going is slow, because the interactions can be stressful to Casper, she said.

Thailand cave rescue to be turned into Netflix series

Thailand cave rescue to be turned into Netflix series The story of the dramatic rescue of 12 young football players and their coach from a cave in Thailand is due to be turned into a TV series, Netflix has said. The streaming service says it has secured the rights to make a mini-series about the mission, which made headlines around the world last summer. "The story combines so many unique local and universal themes which connected people from all walks of life, from all around the world," said Erika North, Netflix's director of international originals.

A Manitoba wildlife group has taken in an abandoned bear cub , marking its first rescue of 2019 — a rare event this early in the year . Black Bear Rescue Manitoba shared a video of the approximately three-week-old cub on Facebook Friday. The yet-to-be-named male bear had to be rescued after the

Casper was only three weeks old when he entered the rescue's care in February. At the time, Woodyer said the rescue was unusually early in the season.

"His eyes were still closed and his ear flaps still hadn't even opened," Woodyer said Wednesday. "He was 3½ pounds at that time, and he's now up to 24 pounds and doing extremely well."

The rescue plans to release both bears into the wild in the fall. By then, they'll likely weigh around 80 pounds, Woodyer said.

The centre released three bears into the wild last year, with tracking collars to monitor their progress.

One of the collars is malfunctioning, Woodyer said. But the other two show normal behaviour for healthy bears, and early data from the broken collar was also encouraging.

"They're staying generally in the area where they were [released], which is good. That means we picked a really good area, with good food sources and so on," she said.

"But they're up and moving around, so they certainly have survived the winter and are already enjoying their wild life."
