Cecilia Kierulff quickly traversed a path through a dense Brazilian rain forest. Rounding a turn in the path, she spotted a wiremesh cage ahead, one of several she had placed in the forest earlier that day. Inside the cage, four golden heads turned anxiously as Kierulff approached.

HMW 1 - Family text: Ursidae (Bears)
Class Mammalia Order Carnivora Suborder Caniformia Family URSIDAE (BEARS)
  • Large mammals with big head and thick neck, small eyes, rounded ears, no facial vibrissae; muscular bodies with stout legs, large paws, and short tail. 100-280 cm. Holarctic, Neotropical, and Oriental regions. Forested environments (boreal, temperate, and tropical) to tundra and semi-desert; one species in Arctic. 5 genera, 8 species, at least 44 extant taxa. 1 species Endangered, 5 Vulnerable; 2 subspecies Extinct since 1600.
Systematics The bear family consists of only eight extant species. Of these, six are sometimes grouped together in the subfamily Ursinae, and some systematists consider all the ursine species within a single genus, Ursus . This is quite a change from just a few decades ago, when each species of bear was classified in its own genus, with only the Brown Bear classified as Ursus . The closely related Polar Bear was in the genus Thalarctos , the American Black Bear in Euarctos , and the Asiatic Black Bear in Selenarctos . Sun Bears ( Helarctos ) and Sloth Bears ( Melursus ) are still considered distinct, single-species genera by many; others use these generic names as subgenera. As there are no clear rules for what constitutes a genus, this classification changes with general consensus, based on newly-discovered morphological, ecological, zoogeographical, and molecular attributes.

Here is a list of animal collections and zoos in Africa. Eventually it will have history and maps as well as guidebooks. ALGERIA Jardin Zoologique du Centre National de Recherche sur les Zones Arides Parc Zoologique et des Loisirs d'Alger BOTSWANA Khama Rhino Sanctuary Trust In 1989 a group of Serowe residents conceived the idea of a wildlife reserve near Serowe. Serwe Pan, then a cattle post, had been a traditional hunting area teeming with wildlife and the residents wished to re-establish it to its earlier splendour. In 1993 the Ngwato Land Board allocated the land around Serwe Pan to the Khama Rhino Sanctuary Trust. The site was chosen due to its excellent habitat for rhinoceros, central location and proximity to a Botswana Defence Force (BDF) base, which provides the Sanctuary with 24hr protection. Covering approximately 4,300 hectares of Kalahari sandveld, the Sanctuary is centred around Serwe Pan - a large grass-covered depression with several natural water holes. Serwe Pan provides prime habitat for white rhinoceros and other grazing animals, whilst the denser vegetation in the southern area of the Sanctuary is favoured by browsing animals such as giraffe.

EDITORIAL FEATURE ARTICLES Leaving the Ark Breeding Greater Flamingos at Budapest Zoo Notes on the Buildings of Amsterdam Zoo Immigrants Find Work Polish Ponies in a Conservation Grazing Project Conservation Annual Reports International Zoo News Recent Articles
EDITORIAL Much comment, in the zoological press and elsewhere, was sparked by an article a couple of years ago in Conservation Biology (J.F. Oates et al. , Vol. 14, No. 5, 15261532) stating that Miss Waldron's red colobus monkey ( Procolobus badius waldroni ) was probably extinct. Most reports in the media chose to ignore the word `probably', and categorically described this colobus as the first primate taxon to disappear in modern times. (Did others besides myself, I wonder, find the sadness of this news tempered by a mild astonishment that, among the many primates teetering on the brink, only one, apparently, had so far actually fallen over?) Now a report in the latest issue of Oryx , the journal of Fauna and Flora International (Vol. 36, No. 3, p. 223), suggests that the obituary notices may indeed have been premature. W. Scott McGraw and John F. Oates, two of the authors of the original article, describe how McGraw and a colleague last year met a hunter in Ivory Coast who had a skin from an adult Miss Waldron's red colobus which they estimated had been killed no more than three months earlier. P. b. waldroni

14. FONT Feature - THE MANED WOLF In Brazil
Maned Wolves are only occasionally hunted for sport, but are frequently captured for sale to South American zoos. In the wild, the animal is shy and usually avoids man.
http://www.focusonnature.com/BRManedWolfFeature.htm
THE MANED WOLF, or the "Guara" In Brazil, the cry of the Maned Wolf at night is believed to portend changes in the weather. Its gaze is said to be able to fell a chicken. These are two of the myths that shroud South America's largest and most distinctive canid. Although considered endangered throughout its range, it remains one of the least studied of the wild dogs. The Maned Wolf is so named for the patch of long black erectile hairs across the shoulders and for its wolf-like size. But it is not a true wolf, and mostly resembles in general form and coloring a long-legged Red Fox. The tail is relatively short, the ears are erect, and the coat is softer in texture than that of many canids and lacks underfur. It has been suggested that its long legs are an adaptation for fast running. In fact, Maned Wolves, which have a characteristic loping gait, are not particularly swift runners, and their long legs are most likely an adaptation to tall grassland habitats. Maned Wolves are opportunists, taking small vertebrate prey up to the size of pacas, which weigh about 18 pounds. Rabbits, small rodents, armadillos, and birds are the most common prey, with occasional fish, insects and reptiles. Seasonally available fruits make up abut half the diet, the most frequent being Solanum lycarpum, known as the "fruit of the lobo" - the "wolf's fruit", which may have therapeutic properties agains the Giant Kidney Worm (dioctophyma renale), common in the Maned Wolf. Foraging is usually done at night, some sometimes occurs in the day in areas less disturbed by man. The animals hunt alone and may cover 20 miles (32 kilometers) in the course of a night. They catch small vertebrates by using a slow stalk followed by a stiff-legged pounce similar to that of Red Foxes.
