Learning to respect wild animals again

That bear or kangaroo might look cute, but it’s a wild animal, not a pet. Wildlife veterinarian Dr Jan Schmidt-Burbach spoke to DW about the need for humans to learn to respect that most basic rule of nature.

In the 1969 movie Kes, a young English teenager called Billy Casper learns the craft of falconry so he can train a wild kestrel. In one scene, he explains why he hates people asking him if his "pet hawk" is tame.

"Is it heck tame! Hawks can't be tamed," he says in exasperation. "It's wild and it's fierce and it's not bothered about anybody."

Young Billy would surely despair at reports this week from Australia of wild kangaroos being fed junk food by tourists. In recent years, there have been regular reports of inappropriate feeding and other ill-advised behavior by tourists around wild animals in various parts of the world.

Dr Jan Schmidt-Burbach is a wildlife veterinarian who has worked for the international non-profit animal welfare organization World Animal Protection for more than 10 years. He spoke to Global Ideas about his concerns with the way in which humans interact with wild animals in the smartphone age.

New Facial Recognition Software Tracks and Protects Endangered Primates
Kristin Houser, 25-May-2018

Facial recognition tech doesn’t have to be creepy or dystopian. We can actually use it for good.

Case in point: Researchers at Michigan State University (MSU) developed a facial recognition software program that could help save the lives of endangered primates. They published their research via arXiv (PDF!).

Tracking is an essential part of wildlife conservation efforts. Traditionally, conservationists capture and tag animals with tracking devices in order to keep tabs on them. This approach can be costly — devices range in price from $400 to $4,000, according to the MSU researchers. They say it can also harm the animals, causing stress, physical injuries, or even death.

The MSU team’s software, which they call PrimNet, avoids these drawbacks of traditional tracking.

To create PrimNet, the researchers started by generating an image dataset for three species of primate — golden monkeys, lemurs, and chimpanzees — taking thousands of photos of the animals in the wild. Next, they used this dataset to train a neural network to recognize the individual animals.

The researchers built a corresponding app, PrimID, to make their PrimNet system easy to use. Wildlife researchers or conservationists simply snap a photo of an animal and drop it into the app. Then, the system either produces a match — which the MSU team claim is 90 percent accurate — or, if it can’t find an exact match, it narrows the field down to five likely candidates.

The MSU team is already looking toward the future of PrimNet. “Moving forward, we plan to enlarge our primate datasets, develop a primate face detector, and share our efforts through open-source websites,” Anil Jain, senior author on the study, said in a press release.

With more than 60 percent of endangered primates on the brink of extinction, we don’t have time to waste if we want to save these animals. Not only could PrimNet help prevent future losses, it does so with the added bonus of being non-invasive. Nothing creepy or dystopian about that.

Hero pup saves owner from rattlesnake bite in Arizona

Facebook/Paula Godwin

A puppy named Todd took loyalty to new heights after he prevented his owner from being bitten by a rattlesnake during a walk in Arizona’s Anthem desert last Friday.

His owner Paula Godwin said that as they were walking, Todd jumped in front of her leg to prevent the snake from biting her.

The pup was bitten on his face by the snake instead.

In a Facebook post, Godwin hailed Todd “a hero” alongside images of the puppy with a swollen face as a result of the snake’s venom.

"I didn't see the snake by my foot," Godwin told Euronews. "As I was walking, Todd bolted by my leg and that's when he was hit by the rattlesnake."

"He for sure saved me from being bit."

Godwin took him to the hospital 10 minutes after he was bitten. He was in the hospital for about 12 hours and is going to recover well, said the pup's owner.

La reserva Shamwari por dentro, el parque conservacionista más fascinante de Sudáfrica

Infobae estuvo allí y recorrió su inmensidad: las 25 mil hectáreas que conforman esta reserva conservacionista en el corazón oriental de Sudáfrica. Qué especies salvajes, aves y flora se pueden encontrar. Y qué animales en peligro de extinción se reintrodujeron en la tierra habitada por los "cinco grandes", el elefante, el búfalo, el rinoceronte, el león y el leopardo. Todo para conocer

Por Esteban Cabrera, 30 de junio de 2018

El parque conservacionista Shamwari Game Reserve está situado en el cabo oriental de Sudáfrica, hoy la reserva tiene una extensión de 25 000 hectáreas y cuenta con una gran población de especies diversas, en especial de mamíferos conocidos como los “cinco grandes” : elefantes búfalos, leones, leopardos y rinocerontes.

Veinticinco mil hectáreas de tierras prístinas y salvajes que se entrecruzan sin permiso en el corazón de Sudáfrica en la reserva conservacionista Shamwari Game Reserve provocan una doble experiencia placentera, respeto por la naturaleza y lujo y comodidades para disfrutar desde cerca de la admiración por un grupo de animales nativos, que viven plenamente, sin peligros ni amenazas.

Shamwari Game Reserve es una de las iniciativas privadas de conservación más exitosas y ejemplificadoras en el sur de África, junto con el turismo responsable y emplazado en un paisaje bello, cómodo y salvaje para experimentar una verdadera aventura de safari africano. Todo en un mismo lugar y con un detalle técnico – sanitario que en estos tiempos se vuelve fundamental para alentar el turismo, se trata de un safari libre de malaria.
