Default Scientists focus on black-footed ferret

Scientists focus on black-footed ferret

Scientists focus on black-footed ferret | LovelandConnection.com | Loveland Connection
excerpts from above:
Quote:
About 25 years ago, there were only 18 known black-footed ferrets living in the wild, on the brink of extension because of disease and widespread loss of habitat.

Today, thanks to the efforts of wildlife biologist Paul Marinari and other federal scientists, there are about 800 black-footed ferrets living in the wild. Marinari runs the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service's ferret conservation and breeding center north of Fort Collins, where Mandisa lives.
Quote:
The captive-bred ferrets will likely be released in Wyoming, Colorado, South Dakota, Mexico and Canada, Marinari said.
