Introduction to the Alliance for Zero Extinction

Introduction to the Alliance for Zero Extinction

The Alliance for Zero Extinction (AZE), a global initiative of biodiversity conservation organizations, aims to prevent extinctions by identifying and safeguarding key sites where species are in imminent danger of disappearing. The goal of the Alliance is to create a front line of defense against extinction by eliminating threats and restoring habitat to allow species populations to rebound.

Tsunami Friends: Owen and Mzee - From All Creatures Animal Stories

Tsunami Friends: Owen and Mzee - owenandmeze.org

The tsunami in south Asia reached as far as the east coast of Africa.

Newspapers picked up the story of a baby hippo who was washed out to sea with his mom and the rest of his herd. The baby hippo washed back up on shore but his mom and the others didn't.

A 120-year-old giant tortoise living in a Kenyan sanctuary has become friends with a baby hippo that was rescued by game wardens. Owen, the year-old hippo rescued last month, suffered from dehydration after being separated from his herd in a river than drains into the Indian Ocean.

When Owen made it to the sanctuary, he headed toward the tortoise which has a dark gray color similar to grown hippos. Wardens said Owen would not have survived alone in the wild.
