Shoes for penguins PDF Print E-mail
Written by Mirjam Goudswaard   
Friday, 17 November 2006
18 "second chance" little penguins living at the International Antarctic Centre in Christchurch, New Zealand wear litte blue shoes. The penguins, also called blue or fairy penguins, were adopted from Marineland in Napier, New Zealand, which rescues sick or injured marine animals and sends some of those that can't return to the wild to live at regional animal centers. After arrival some of the penguins got infected feet, which led to the solution of wearing shoes.

A breed of giant, ravenous snails that first appeared in Barbados five years ago has thrived on the tropical island, destroying crops and prompting calls for the government to eliminate the slimy pests.

Sucking up to win the support of the boss dates back to our furry ancestors. The motivation, for monkeys, is life and death. Rather than grabbing coffee for the CEO, monkeys have for eons picked dead skin and bugs from the fur of higher-ranking monkeys. They do it in exchange for backing in fights.

Fin whales are on a Red List of endangered species. "The Icelandic economy is overwhelmingly dependent on the utilisation of living marine resources in the ocean around the country," the Fisheries Ministry of the North Atlantic island of about 300,000 people said in a statement.

How do birds navigate PDF Print E-mail
Written by Mirjam Goudswaard   
Wednesday, 11 October 2006
Each fall, billions of birds undertake a migratory odyssey that can span the globe or carry them only a few states away. Despite the regularity of these journeys, scientists know surprisingly little about bird migration. Now, scientists have new tools that many believe will revolutionize bird migration research. Tracking technologies like satellite transmitters and GPS units -- formerly too bulky to be placed on any but the largest birds -- now fit on duck-sized birds without hindering their flight.
