WIldlife and Parks’ Emporia office to serve as collection point for investigation into Rusty Crayfish

The Kansas Department of Wildlife and Parks’ Emporia Research and Survey Office will be the collection point for a new investigation effort involving invasive crayfish. Wildlife and Parks recently funded a university project focusing on monitoring both native and invasive crayfish, also known as crawdads. Shortly after beginning the process, Rusty Crayfish were discovered at McPherson State Fishing Lake — the first time this version of crayfish has been found in Kansas.

Cities Aren't the Wildlife 'Deserts' Scientists Once Feared

This story originally appeared on Yale Environment 360 and is part of the Climate Desk collaboration. Last year, as billions of people around the globe were in coronavirus lockdown, students of Queens College ecologist Bobby Habig discovered a bobcat roaming around the Bronx River in New York City, better known for its recent past as an open sewer and repository for automobile tires and rusted chassis than as a habitat for elusive wildcats. In January, a snowy owl, native to Canada’s Arctic tundra, touched down in Central Park for the first time in 130 years and spent more than a month supplementing its usual diet of boreal lemmings with choice urban fare such as mice and rats. For weeks a coyote was spotted in the Ramble, a 37-acre “wilderness” of rocky crags and hilly forest in the heart of Central Park.

Letter: Congress can reduce vehicle-wildlife collisions

Every year, collisions between cars and wildlife on American roads cost us a staggering $8 billion.

Wildlife Commissioners Eye Record Manatee Deaths

Manatee deaths in the Indian River Lagoon will be discussed next month by members of the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission, but no action is expected.
