Clean energy and conservation are at odds over wind farm turbine threats to the California Condor. A shadow is falling on the Tehachapi green energy transmission line, cast by the nine-and-a-half-foot wingspan of a Pleistocene-born bird of uncommon intelligence and longevity - the California condor.
In 1985,we first saw Marty McFly zooming Back to the Future to make sure he and his family didnt disappear. Also in 1985, our biologists were capturing California condors in an effort to make sure the species didnt disappear. Between 1983 and 1987, the Service-led California Condor Recovery Program captured 22 California condors -- were only ones left in the wild anywhere on Earth. The goal was to breed the birds in captivity and release them back into the wild.. MORE: Find photos and video interviews. On August 7, 1985, our biologists captured 5-year-old male California condor AC-4 at Bitter Creek National Wildlife Refuge in Kern County, California. AC-4 turned out to be integral to the recovery of the California condor population. He successfully sired 30 chicks that have been released into the wild population -- the third most productive sire in the program. He was also part of the pair that produced the first egg and first chick from wild birds in captivity in 1988.. Fast forward to ...
THS Director, Rick Speare, gave the opening address at the Australian Wildlife Rehabilitation Conference being held in Townsville 16-20 July. The lecture was titled Adventures in wildlife disease research: from benign curiosities to global epidemics. In this talk Rick discussed an eclectic range of conditions in Australian wildlife that he had investigated over 34 years of research: from strange parasites and diseases in macropods and possums to globally significant work on diseases causing epidemics in wild amphibians. He also highlighted the important role wildlife carers can play in unraveling the mysteries of wildlife diseases. This not only improves the outcomes of rehabilitation of individual animals, but can add significantly to conservation of wildlife. Wildlife carers are the eyes of the wildlife disease surveillance system.. For a researcher interested in new diseases wildlife is the last frontier. The vast and varied Australian fauna gives immense possibilities for pathogens to call ...
Call a rehabilitator for answers. Yes, we want that baby to be safe from predators, but give that baby a chance. The worst thing that happens in these situations is an improper diet being fed by the rescuer. This will result in death, if not right away, then in time, due to improper development. Different birds require different diets and different amounts of food at different times. Here is where a wildlife rehabilitators knowledge and experience makes all the difference. Dont try to do this yourself, only to attempt to find a rehabilitator as the baby is dying due to your efforts. When they are at this stage, there is very little that can be done AND it is also illegal to attempt raising wildlife. Only a permitted wildlife rehabilitator can do this legally, for we know how to keep them wild and ready for release as well. Making them pets, besides being illegal is very selfish and is not whats best for the wildlife. They need to be free and have learned how to find the food they will need ...
The California Department of Fish and Game (CDFG) appreciates the many public and private animal control departments, veterinarians, shelters, rescue organizations and volunteers that provide humane care for wild animals. These organizations provide an important service and are often called upon to be "first responders" for wildlife emergencies and to find legal placement for the care of wild birds and animals.. What should I do if I find, or a client brings me, an injured or orphaned wild animal?. The California Code of Regulations, Title 14, Section 679, states that the public has 48 hours to contact the Department of Fish and Game or a licensed rehabilitator to place an injured or orphaned wild animal. Veterinarians must also comply with this regulation if they are not a permitted wildlife rehabilitation facility, or working directly with a licensed rehabilitator. The Department recognizes that there are times when a wild animal may need intensive care for more that 48 hours. In these cases ...
The California Condor is one of the rarest of all North American birds and one of the rarest birds in the world. In fact, during the first half of the century there were only 60 individual condors. Now there is less than 40 despite the conservation efforts that are put forth by biologists and other American authorities. Today the California Condors range is limited to a small region that is north of Los Angeles. Soaring at speeds of 35-40 miles per hour the California Condor cleaned carrion from roads, ranches and beaches. There is absolutely no record of these magnificent birds attacking a living animal, however they were routinely shot, mostly by farmers and ranchers. Also California Condors were being exterminated by lead poisoning. However, zoologists are trying to change the condors upcoming fate. Molloko is the first ever captive condor that was bred in captivity in history, born in April, 1988 at the San Diego Wild Animal Park. Its future lies in the hands of captive breeding and when ...

BACKGROUND: Studies of non-model species are important for understanding the molecular processes underpinning phenotypic variation under natural ecological conditions. The common buzzard (Buteo buteo; Aves: Accipitriformes) is a widespread and common Eurasian raptor with three distinct plumage morphs that differ in several fitness-related traits, including parasite infestation. To provide a genomic resource for plumage polymorphic birds in general and to search for candidate genes relating to fitness, we generated a transcriptome from a single dead buzzard specimen plus easily accessible, minimally invasive samples from live chicks. RESULTS: We not only de novo assembled a near-complete buzzard transcriptome, but also obtained a significant fraction of the transcriptome of its malaria-like parasite, Leucocytozoon buteonis. By identifying melanogenesis-related transcripts that are differentially expressed in light ventral and dark dorsal feathers, but which are also expressed in other regions of ...

The Raptor Rehabilitation Program at Washington State Universitys College of Veterinary Medicine is committed to unmatched care for all raptors including eagles, falcons, hawks, and owls. Each year, WSUs Veterinary Teaching Hospital treats approximately 100 sick and injured raptors that may have been hit by automobiles, burned by power lines, poisoned, or found starving because of loss of prey. The Raptor Rehabilitation Program provides medical care, food, and shelter to sick or injured birds, returning them to the wild whenever possible. The mews in the Stauber Raptor Facility house recovering and resident birds.. Resident birds that are not able to be returned to the wild are cared for at the college and participate in public education programs through the WSU Raptor Club, a non-profit volunteer organization founded in 1981. The raptors and club volunteers visit service organizations, fairs, summer camps, and schools to educate children and adults about raptor conservation and the lives of ...
Regulatory associated protein of mTOR, complex 1 (Raptor) is encoded by the RPTOR gene. It is involved in the control of the mammalian target of rapamycin (mTOR) and is a subunit of mTORC1. Raptor binds to mTOR kinase and functions as a scaffold for recruiting mTORC1 substrates. It also associates with eukaryotic translation initiation factor 4E-binding protein 1 (EIF4BP1) and ribosomal protein S6 kinase (S6K1). Raptor negatively regulates mTOR kinase but positively regulates S6K1. Raptor also interacts with unc-51-like kinase 1 (ULK1) in a nutrient-dependent manner. Raptor is also known as p150 target of rapamycin (TOR)-scaffold protein, KIAA1303, KOG1, and Mip1.. ...
ST. PAUL, Minn. - A rare snowy owl whose plight drew national attention after it was apparently hit by a bus in the nations capital is now in rehab in Minnesota.. The injured owl was found in downtown Washington in late January and taken to the National Zoo before being transferred to a Washington, D.C., wildlife rehabilitation center.. Now its at The Raptor Center at the University of Minnesota, which has expertise in replacing damaged feathers.. The Raptor Center says the owls prognosis for release is good. The bird will get a test flight next week, then begin an exercise program to strengthen its muscles sufficiently so it can be set free.. Snowy owls are native to the Arctic but were seen all along the East Coast this winter, as far south as Florida.. ...
singlepic id=311 w=216 h=290 float=left]Six California Condors, among the most endangered birds in the world, have recently been recovered suffering from lead poisoning. Three of these subsequently died from lead poisoning from ammunition, while three others were treated for lead poisoning, according to The Peregrine Funds Condor Recovery Program in Arizona. This brings the total number of California condors killed by lead in the last 11 years to 19.. This tragic news comes as little surprise for those of us engaged in the lead ammunition issue. We expect more condor, eagle, and other bird deaths as long as lead remains an ingredient in bullets and shot used for hunting," said George Fenwick, President of American Bird Conservancy. "Ammunition manufacturers have introduced superior non-toxic ammunition both for shotguns and for hunting rifles, and hunters report the newer non-toxic bullets outperform traditional ammunition. The cost of non-toxic ammunition is now the same as for premium lead ...
In modern times, a wide variety of causes have contributed to the condors decline. Its low clutch size (one young per nest), combined with a late age of sexual maturity, make the bird vulnerable to artificial population decline. Significant past damage to the condor population has also been attributed to poaching,[48] lead poisoning (from eating animals containing lead shot),[49] DDT poisoning,[50] electric power lines, egg collecting, and habitat destruction. During the California Gold Rush, some condors were even kept as pets.[51] The leading cause of mortality in nestling condors is the ingestion of trash that is fed to them by their parents.[52] In addition to this, cattle ranchers who observed condors feeding on the dead young of their cattle assumed that the birds killed the cattle. This fallacy led to the condors extirpation in some parts of the western United States. This belief was so deeply ingrained that the reintroduction of condors to the Grand Canyon was challenged by some cattle ...
|p| Sorry to disappoint all the dinosaur lovers out there, but these raptors are of the birds of prey variety. The Raptor Center at the University of Minnesota’s College of Veterinary Medicine is a clinic that provides care to sick and injured raptors. In addition to describing the clinic, the website for the Raptor Center also provides nice sections devoted to education, conservation, and miscellaneous raptor-related activities (an owl paper bag puppet, anyone?). The education section contains information about all of the raptors kept at the clinic as education birds, as well a page providing detailed information about 40 different species of raptors. The species-specific information covers identifying characteristics, range, habitat, nesting, and feeding habits of the birds. For younger audiences, the “just for fun” section of the website includes activity books, puppets and masks, and games (such as matching chicks with their adult counterparts).|/p|

Occasionally, you might find seemingly injured animals in the garden, such as stunned birds that have flown into a window or nocturnal creatures like grounded bats or hedgehogs that are out during day time. Before doing anything, inform yourself and make sure the animal really needs help. If it is a baby bird or other young animal, remember that wild creatures do not take care of their offspring as humans do and can leave them alone for a day before they come back. If necessary, you can take the animal somewhere safe and give it only water until it recovers. For serious injuries, please go to the nearest wildlife rehabilitation center ...

Our condor nest boxes are elevated; theyre on the second floor of the condor breeding facility. The nests have one entrance that leads to the roost area. The entrance has an 18-inch barrier at the base to prevent young hatchlings from wandering out of our cameras view. This barrier also provides exercise for the chick when it is big enough to start jumping up onto the barrier. The roost area is open to the flight pen and has a ledge that is about eight feet off of the ground. There is a five-inch-diameter pole leaning from the ground to the ledge; we call this the "pole ladder." The condors can walk up or down this pole ladder to get to or from the nest. They can, of course, fly to the nest as well if they desire.. For a few weeks, Antiki was able to walk down the pole ladder to start exploring the flight pen. She would watch Sisquoc and Shatash eat, sometimes begging for them to feed her, sometimes playing tug-of-war trying to take food from them. She also got to drink from the pool for the ...
American badgers are solitary animals that are classified as a sensitive species in Alberta. While badgers do not truly hibernate, they do conserve energy in the winter by cycling through states of torpor in which their metabolism and physical activity decrease. Breeding occurs in August, but the fetus does not implant until December - February, remaining dormant until then. Young are born in early April, eyes closed and furless. Badgers are threatened due to habitat fragmentation, loss of prey species, and due to being trapped, shot and poisoned by humans. ...
If all goes well, she will be moved outside to a small free-flight mew (large wooden cage) where she will exercise on her own.

Once she has undergone sufficient physical therapy to build up her strength she will be moved to a larger free-flight mew ...
Bitterwater is an unincorporated community in the Bitterwater Valley of San Benito County, California, United States.[1] Bitterwater is located at 36°22′49″N 121°00′10″W / 36.38028°N 121.00278°W / 36.38028; -121.00278. Bitterwater Valley, located at the base of the Diablo Range mountains on a crucial earthquake, San Andreas Fault, was once the primary habitat of the giant California condors. Around 1946, DDT poison was introduced throughout that area to kill coyotes, prairie dogs, mountain lions, and other animals that ate crops or posed a threat to ranch or farm animals. As the condors ate the animals killed by DDT, they too vanished.[citation needed] But as humans decimated the California Condor, they realized this and changed tactics. Now the Bitterwater Valley in California is home to many condors. No prairie dogs exist in Bitterwater but the digger squirrel is very pervasive in the area, as well as coyote, California badger, redtail hawks, and wild turkey. Bitterwater ...
Issuy (ee-SOO-ee): Female, 6 months old, wearing tag Yellow 43 (right wing). California condors that are expected to be released to the wild are called release candidates. We raise all of our condor chicks as if they are release candidates until we hear otherwise from the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service, which oversees the California Condor Recovery Program. We have yet to hear if and/or where any of this years fledglings will be released. Release candidates are isolated from humans. We offer their food through a chute in the wall. The pools are drained and rinsed from the outside of the pen. We dont pick up any of their old food. The only time the birds see us is during a medical procedure: affixing wingtags, pre-shipment examinations, or West Nile Virus inoculations. These generally are not enjoyable experiences for the young condors, and that is what we want them to learn from us before they are shipped to the wild. We dont want them to associate humans with anything beneficial. We are hoping ...

The California condors return from near extinction is threatened by persistent exposure to lead-based bullets, despite intensive efforts to treat and care for poisoned birds each year, scientists say. Lead poisoning in the condors is now of epidemic proportions, said Myra Finkelstein, a research toxicologist at UC Santa Cruz and the principal author of a report on the condor problem in this weeks issue of the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. Captive breeding programs, hatcheries for eggs gathered from abandoned nests in the wild and many other conservation efforts have been hailed as great successes in saving the condor from extinction.

VanVleets big contribution were the five straight points scored early in the fourth when the Raptors expanded their lead to 85-74. Though the Raptors blew that lead, those points were crucial when you consider the margin of victory.. VanVleet though owns an impressive resume of plays in previous wins.. In Boston, he forced a turnover on Jayson Tatum to give Toronto a chance to win. In New Orleans, he contributed defensively against DeMarcus Cousins; and he hit the game-clinching 3-pointer in a win over Washington..

... - The RAPTOR is in its element on difficult whitewater, making it the perfect choice for multi-day expeditions, running steep creeks and competing in extreme races. Due to the stability of the hull, the boat is suited to beginner and intermediate paddlers who are seeking to develop and push their whitewater skills. The Raptor is also the ideal choice for advanced paddlers because it is both very fast and highly manoeuvrable.
A B.C. resident says shes concerned for the safety of her pets after learning that an owl, which was found dead on her property Thursday, was killed after it ate rat poison.. Christine Trozzo, who lives on South Surrey, noticed an abnormally lethargic barred owl perched high in her birch tree on Wednesday.. With a hunch something wasnt quite right with the bird, she called Orphaned Wildlife Rehabilitation Society (OWL), based in Delta.. OWL raptor manager Rob Hope told Trozzo that it was unsafe to retrieve the bird because of how high it was in the tree, but told her to keep an eye on the animal and call him immediately if the bird moved to the ground.. The next day, Trozzo found the birds body in her yard.. Later that day, Hope went to investigate how the bird had died, and said that the juvenile owl was in perfect health, but it "just dropped dead.". "Just examining the bird myself, from what I saw and where the bird was found. The fact that the bird is healthy, mouth is pale, and theres a ...

The main goal of Raptor is to deliver a unique menu for KDE, that is easy to use yet also eye-candy and with customisable look and feel The Main goal of Raptor Design (technically) is to abstract the source of the data. The Data Source is implemented as DataSource Class. The DataSource Class itself is implemented directly in LibPlasma. The loading of the Data Source is handled by the Data Engine, which is found as DataEngine Class also in Libplasma... which knows how to handle the Source. Thus it is possible to create and hook in other Plugins as wished, without changing the main Code of Raptor. Raptor will load the Plasma DataEngines through an Interface to gain access to the DataSources. By specifying these interface for Raptor, and a plugin handler, others can write their own plugins with datasources and -engines and add it in Raptors configuration. Raptor then tells the plugins to deliver data via the interface (updateData or sthg) and the plugin sends these data in the form that it fits ...
