Red-tailed sportive lemurs are creatures of the night. They keep their travels short, covering only between 330 feet and 0.6 miles each night. As temperatures drop, so do their nightly excursions. During the day, catch them cozying up in tree holes or basking in the sun at the entrance.

Who to call if a bunch of trees are being cut down?

In my area I know there are bats that are protected. I know there is only a certain time of year you cat cut trees down if the bats are around. I believe they can't cut them down starting April 1st. It seems like they are trying to get it done before then, but I just want them to stop. They are destroying over 200 acres. What can I do to make this stop. I know this is a I probably won't win, but I would like to put a wrench in it.

The Big-headed Turtle (Platysternon megacephalum)

One of the most endangered turtles in the world, these poor guys get poached and traded frequently for the pet industry. (Illustration done by myself)One of my main subjects is bringing awareness to threatened and endangered species.

May have discovered new species in my state

Hey guys my name is Sully Brock and I live in Tennessee and I believe I may have discovered a new species. I was fishing and I looked over in a tiny puddle way above me and I discovered a bunch of little bugs moving around and when I took a little closer look I realized they're a type of crustacean called clam shrimp. There's no records of clam shrimp being native to Tennessee so I believe I may have just made a very major ecological discovery. Does anybody know who I could contact or tell this to? Any help is wanted. Once I get some samples of the organisms I will give them to a science professor at my sister's High School. Until then can anybody help me narrow down the categories I believe they could be in the genus Cyzicidae.

Endangered animals for thesis

I'm working on a thesis about endangered animals in the Philippines, and I'm looking for pictures of the following:

Philippine Eagle

Visayan dotted deer

Philippine Fresh water crocodile

Tamaraw

Philippine Tarsier

If you have any photos of these animals, I would be grateful if you could send them to me. I will, of course, give credit to the photographers in my thesis.

Thanks in advance for your help!

Excited to see the rare beautiful and energetic Rhinos. Despite their weight, they can move up to 40 miles per hour.

Red Ruffed Lemurs are major fruit lovers, with fruit making up a whopping 75-95% of their diet! They also play a vital role as pollinators, carrying pollen from plant to plant on their furry snouts.
