Image by @joelsartore | The Mexican gray wolf once ruled the American Southwest, but as the arrival of humans and livestock increased, they began to be viewed as pests. By 1973, trapping, poison and rifles had completely eliminated the wild Mexican gray wolf populations in the U.S., leaving only a handful alive in captivity.
To save this keystone species, an unprecedented breeding program was put in place and, in 1998, eleven Mexican gray wolves were eventually released back into the wilds of Arizona. Today about 100 survive on their own, a better number for sure, but the wolf still remains one of the rarest land animals on Earth.
So what to do? Allowing the wolves to establish territories in many suitable habitats in remote locations will help prevent inbreeding. Biologists hope to target areas with abundant wild prey and few roads such as the vast forested areas around the Grand Canyon, up into Utah, over to New Mexico and into parts of Colorado. A minimum population of 750 wolves in the wild would help ensure that the species will stay genetically distinct enough to survive well into the future.

Que orgulho! A National Geographic (@NatGeo) escolheu a @uporto para apresentar pela primeira vez na Europa uma "Arca de Noé dos tempos modernos". Um projeto maravilhoso que pretende ser um apelo global à preservação das espécies. Podes ver esta linda exposição na Galeria da Biodiversidade da @uporto! Sabe mais no link da bio: http://bit.ly/photoark-uporto. | So proud! National Geographic (@NatGeo) chose @uporto to present for the first time in Europe a "Noah's Ark of modern times". A wonderful project that aims to be a global call to the preservation of species. You can see this beautiful exhibition in the Biodiversity Gallery from @uporto! #uporto #fbaup #fcup #fcnaup #fadeup #fdup #fep #feup #ffup #flup #fmup #fmdup #fpceup #icbas
Because of their unusually blotchy markings and three stripes along their spine, king cheetahs like this one at @zoomiami were once believed to be a completely separate subspecies. However, it’s now known that these markings are simply the result of a genetic mutation. This rare variety of cheetah has only been spotted in the wild six times.
Cheetahs are known for their incredible speed (60-70 mph/113 kph), but that’s not the only thing that makes them one of Africa’s most formidable hunters. Cheetahs have excellent eyesight and are born with the spotted fur necessary to blend in with the tall, golden grasses of the plains where they hunt. After silently stalking their prey, the cheetah will sprint after it and trip it before delivering a fatal bite to the neck. These chases last less than one minute and are successful about 50% of the time.
Wild cheetahs are steadily inching closer to extinction as humans continue to destroy their natural habitats.
