Researchers find ‘catastrophic’ coral die-off on Great Barrier Reef 19.4.2018 The Tribune
Sydney, April 19 Australia’s Great Barrier Reef suffered a “catastrophic die-off” of coral during an extended heatwave in 2016, threatening a broader range of reef life than previously feared, a report revealed on Thursday. Scientists said some 30 per cent of the reef’s coral died in the heatwave from March to November 2016, the first of an unprecedented two successive years of coral bleaching along the 2,300-kilometre World Heritage-listed reef off Australia’s northeastern coast. The study published Thursday in the journal Nature found that coral, which serve as habitats for other creatures, were particularly hard hit by the rising sea temperatures caused by global warming. Terry Hughes, a report co-author and head of the Centre of Excellence for Coral Reef Studies at Australia’s James Cook University, told AFP the most susceptible to heat exposure were branching corals—table-shaped creatures that provide nooks and crannies for fish nurseries and fisheries. Corals that were more likely to survive the ...

Tiger cubs may have been poisoned to death 19.4.2018 DNA: India
Holding the forest department responsible for the deaths of two tiger cubs at Ranthambore National Park (RNP), wildlife experts and enthusiasts claimed that the fatal incidents could have been averted had the staff equipped with advanced technology were conscious of its responsibilities of tiger conservation. Brushing aside the forest department’s claim of territorial conflict, experts suspect that the cubs were most likely to have been poisoned to death by unidentified poachers. If the management in RNP was aware of the space crunch and rising population of tigers in the reserve, why didn’t it take substantial measures for the conservation of tigers by developing additional habitats, a senior wildlife expert at Jaipur asked on condition of anonymity. The Ranthambore critical tiger reserve is spread over 1,200 square kilometres where the tiger population is believed to be existing while 800 square kilometres is its surrounding area in the park, he said. He added that additional tiger habitats could have ...
