It's World Giraffe Day! We're LIVE at ZSL London Zoo with the world's tallest mammal and keeper, Amy. Find out all about these incredible animals and the threats they face in the wild. Don't forget to post your questions in the comments!
Grass snakes are commonly found throughout England and Wales, but they could be facing a growing threat from a fungal skin disease which has already contributed to deaths of snakes in North America.
ZSL led on a collaborative study, which has identified the disease in British grass snakes for the first time. Symptoms include skin lesions, scabs and crusty scales.
The disease hasn’t been seen outside of the United States before now, and we’re calling for further research to fully understand the significance to Europe’s wild snake populations.
Is the seahorse the best Dad of the animal kingdom?
Seahorses are one of the only species where the male gives birth to the young! The female can pass as many as 250 eggs into her partner’s pouch where he will fertilise and incubate them before going into labour.
It’s hard to imagine that the beautiful Sumatran tiger is critically endangered in the wild, with a population of only around 300 remaining.
But with your help, we're working to conserve the species and its habitat. Could you streak for tigers? www.zsl.org/streak
Giant tortoises are usually associated with the Galápagos Islands, but fossil evidence has revealed that they were once widespread across the northern Caribbean too.
A ZSL-led study has found that the island of Hispaniola, which is today divided between the Dominican Republic and Haiti, was once home to a species of giant tortoise that is now extinct.
This nocturnal primate is a red slender loris. With huge round eyes, it has excellent night vision to hunt for insects in its forest habitat in Sri Lanka. But populations are declining due to deforestation, and it’s thought that fewer than 2,500 individuals remain in isolated patches.
The ZSL EDGE of Existence Programme highlights and conserves one-of-a-kind species like the red slender loris that are on the verge of extinction.
We’re training aspiring conservationists in developing countries to take the lead in researching their local EDGE species, and the call for 2017 EDGE Fellows closes on Friday 16th June!
