  Louisiana gators thrive, so farmers' return quota may drop NEW ORLEANS (AP) — Once-endangered alligators are thriving in the wild, so Louisiana authorities are proposing a deep cut in the percentage that farmers must return to marshes where their eggs were laid. “Over the past 50 years, alligator nest surveys have increased from an estimate of less than 10,000 in the 1970s and 1980s to well over 60,000 nests in recent years," the Louisiana Wildlife and Fisheries Commission said in a notice published Wednesday. "This increase in nesting has produced a population that can now be sustained with a much lower farm return rate.” The commission is taking comments until Jan. 4 on a proposal to cut that rate from 10% to 5%.

The young tiger was an Amur tiger, the largest cat species in the world.

Whilst on the scene they noticed signs that a mother tiger had been around the site, but she did not approach the rescue team as they worked to release her cub.

Sergey Aramilev, general director of the Amur Tiger Center, which took part in the rescue, told The Siberian Times: "We knew that the mother tigress stayed close all the time, so we acted as fast and as carefully as we possibly could [to not] provoke an attack."

Once the tiger's paw was released, the team decided to leave her in the wild since her injuries were deemed minor. "We are certain that the cub has already joined its mother, and that it will be more cautious in the future," Aramilev said. "We received the information just in time to be able to save its life."

Poachers are the worst, except for the people that buy the clothing, purses, and jewelry from the poachers and keep them in business. Fuck those guys/girls, but probably girls. I've spoken with members of special forces from multiple different countries who say they have at one time or another been stationed in National Parks in Africa and Asia to track and kill poachers .

The Amur Tiger Center has been studying the Amur tiger population since 2013. The species is listed as endangered under the IUCN Red List.

Other organizations involved in the tiger's release included the Ministry of Forestry and Wildlife Protection of the Primorsky Territory, the Directorate for the Protection of Wildlife and Specially Protected Natural Areas, and "employees of a special group" the Amur Tiger Center said in a statement. Photos show how staff worked to rescue the sedated cub.

Amur tigers, formerly known as Siberian tigers, may be largest cats in existence but their numbers are low. It is thought that there are only between 500 and 550 individuals in the Russian far east, with some ranging into China and possibly North Korea, according to the Wildcats Conservation Alliance.

Despite the low numbers today, conservation efforts by Russia have helped the species away from the brink of extinction.

Biden administration moves to undo two Trump-era Endangered Species Act rollbacks

  Biden administration moves to undo two Trump-era Endangered Species Act rollbacks The Biden administration will move to rescind two Trump-era rollbacks of protections for endangered species, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (FWS) announced Tuesday.The first of the two rules, announced in December 2020, would have curtailed the definition of "habitat" to pertain to areas that can currently support a species. Environmentalists pushed back on the move at the time, noting that it would exclude areas that could potentially support species in the future.The second rule, finalized days later, would have barred FWS from granting critical habit protections to an area if an analysis determined it was of greater benefit not to provide them.

The Amur leopard is the rarest big cat on earth, with only about 60 of the solitary animals left in the wild. While the IUCN has classified them as critically endangered , they still face far too many threats, as illustrated by the case of the Russian cub . Poachers commonly leave these snares to capture cats and turn their stunning fur into clothing, furniture, art and other goods. The Russian outpost of the World Wildlife Fund, along with other local groups, rushed in to help the animal, who immediately went into emergency surgery.

Three critically endangered Sumatran tigers , including two cubs , were found dead in a conservation area of Sumatra Island in Indonesia.

The Wildcats Conservation Alliance says Russia became the first country to ban tiger hunting shortly after World War II. That same decade there were less than 50 of the tigers remaining.

Males weigh on average up to 190 kilograms while females tend to weigh on average up to 130 kilograms. They can run at speeds of up to 50 miles per hour and jump up to 16 feet high.

Their coats are a lighter shade of orange than other tigers and, due to the colder climate in that part of the world, thicker.
