Hunting With Hawks

Goshawk in the grass.

Have you ever wondered how a hawk hunts? How the creatures zero in on prey, how they stalk, and how they kill? If you’ve ever seen a hawk circling its prey in the open sky, you know just how amazing these creatures are and how very little we know about them! From a Hawk’s View It has long been assumed that a hawk spots its prey, and then simply flies down from the sky to attack that prey, but that’s not what a team of researchers has discovered. Researchers recently strapped a camera to the helmet of a Goshawk inRead More

Tracking Jellyfish?

Jellyfish in the ocean.

You can’t really place a GPS tracker on a jellyfish — where would you put it? But, you can track the ocean currents using GPS technology, and that’s exactly what a group of Australian researchers is doing in order to understand how the little sacks of jelly work. Jellyfish do not have brains, a heart, or any bones, but the researchers have discovered they can adapt surprisingly well to the ocean’s currents. As it turns out, jellyfish can automatically detect the various currents of ocean waves, and this allows the fish to swim against the currents. Prior to discovering thisRead More

A Fast Thinking Sheriff Finds a Lost Boy

Lost pitbull dog.

Just a few days ago in Unicoi County, Tennessee, a boy’s dog went missing while the two were out on a hunting trip in the mountains. The boy’s dog was wearing a GPS tracking collar when it disappeared, and this prompted the young hunter to try and find his dog by tracing the GPS signal. After gathering some friends, it was decided that this boy and his friends would meet back at one particular spot after the boy had tracked down his dog. When the boy never returned to the original meeting place, the local Sheriff became worried, and gatheredRead More

A Canadian Wild Boar Problem

Wild boars playing in the mud.

What happens when you introduce a new species into a foreign place? In the case of numerous wild boar in Saskatchewan, you get a species that thrives quite unexpectedly. Fish and Game authorities in Saskatchewan, Canada, introduced a number of wild boar into the environment to help with agricultural diversification. What authorities didn’t account for was that wild boar can survive in harsh climates, and wouldn’t simply die out as they had originally thought. Boars Like Cold Weather Wild boars live naturally in Russia, and Russia is known for its harsh climates. When the boars were brought into Saskatchewan, itRead More

Teaching an Old Bear New Tricks with GPS

A brown bear, maybe a grizzly bear.

From the moment this three-and-a-half year old grizzly bear wakes up to the time she retires for the evening, her movements are being tracked thanks to a GPS tracking device worn in the form of a collar around her neck. Biologists in Banff, located in Canada, collared No. 148 back on June 12, 2014 in an effort to reduce the number of grizzlies killed on highways and railways, a joint project between Canadian Pacific Railway and Parks Canada. The goal of the project is to see how these young bears use the land around them,Read More
