GREATER YELLOWSTONE REGION

 

Yellowstone is popular for beautiful scenery and its classic wildlife. Unfortunately, the animals we love in the Greater Yellowstone Region are facing many threats. Human activity and climate change are affecting their crucial habitat and food sources. A less understood threat, that is amplified by these changes, is disease. Understanding exactly what diseases may threaten or decimate a fragile species’ population, such as bison or moose, is critical to ensuring the survival of Yellowstone’s wildlife.

HIMALAYAN REGION

There is an urgent threat in India: There is a serious threat to Bengal tigers; canine distemper. A disease that is transmitted to tigers by domestic dogs and is nearly always fatal to the big cats, yet can be prevented. Elephants throughout Asia are at risk of highly pathogenic diseases such as herpes virus. The herpes virus is attributed to half the deaths of young elephants throughout Asia. VIEW reported that in a three year period, 12% of Chitwan National Park’s rhino population died due to “natural” or unknown causes.This trend is rising and at the current rate, rhinos will go extinct in eight years.
