Endangered red wolf can make it in the wild, but not without ‘significant’ help, study says

The endangered red wolf can survive in the wild, but only with “significant additional management intervention,” according to a long- awaited population viability analysis released on Sept. 29.
The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service also released an updated recovery plan Friday for “Canis rufus” — the only wolf species unique to the United States. It calls for spending nearly $328 million over the next 50 years to get the red wolf off the endangered species list.

One of those crazy diehard duck hunters hoping that “this weather system” will bring a migration of ducks from up north is 71-year-old Greg Drees of Arnolds Park, Iowa.
“Duck hunting is in my blood — introduced to me by my father,” said Drees, who grew up in Carroll.

New research in Illinois utilizing listening devices aims to understand how fish interact in Chicago River

How far do largemouth bass swim? How do bluegills respond to poor water quality? And where do common carp, sunfish, and crappies go in the winter months?
One might be able to answer these questions simply by listening to “sound fish make.” At least that’s how researchers from Shedd Aquarium are approaching a new study of the Chicago River, where 80 fish were outfitted with tags that bounce off of 32 receivers – or listening devices – that continuously listen for unique sound signals from those tags, which emit a unique frequency linked to each individual fish.
