Investigating this for the addra gazelle is particularly important, both because the large numbers of this critically endangered species kept in Texas are a safeguard against extinction and because reintroduction efforts to bolster the vanishing wild populations in Africa will draw from captive stock. When […]

Prescribed burning promotes pasture improvement
On the surface, intentionally setting fires in a park with roughly 1,100 animals may seem unfathomable.

<p>For the next week or so I will be posting shots from the Fossil Rim Wildlife Park in Glen Rose, Texas.<br />
<br />
It is a 1,800 acre wildlife park where most of the 1,100 animals roam freely in large pastures.  You can drive a 7 mile loop that brings you up close to the animals as you throw feed pellets out to them.<br />
<br />
When I die, I want to come back as a wild animal living here with no predators.  :-)</p>			<p><a href="http://www.flickr.com/people/110798434@N07/">bkloflin-USA</a> posted a photo:</p>
