Condor Editor Pick - Translocated Hawks Thrive in Hispaniola


Recommended Posts

Species translocation—capturing animals in one place and releasing them in another—is a widely used conservation method for establishing or reestablishing populations of threatened species. However, translocation projects often fail when the transplanted animals fail to thrive in their new home.
