Although polar bear numbers could shrink by more than 30% by midcentury, the population of Siberian tigers appears to have stabilized. And wolf reintroductions in the western United States have been so successful that wildlife managers are now culling animals to limit livestock losses. Hunt down the latest news on bears, seals, weasels, and other mammalian meat-eaters at Carnivore Conservation from French researcher Guillaume Chapron. He started the site 4 years ago to pass the time while he waited for his ecological simulations to run. It now brims with PDFs of reports, theses, and other documents on carnivore preservation and ecology. Visitors can also learn about upcoming meetings and paw through a bibliography with more than 5700 abstracts, including many from conferences and hard-to-find publications.
