Humpback whales (HW) in the Eastern South Pacific migrate each year from high latitudes, where they feed, to low latitudes close to equator, where they breed, forming a management unit called G stock (GS). HW that feed in the Antarctic Peninsula breed in Colombian waters. Historically international effort has studied the biology, ecology, and genetics of this stock.

Apinya Chaitae

Thailand

In Thailand, registered privately-owned, elephants have been legally categorised as draught animals.

This problem was addressed by legislative reform in 2015.

In South Africa we have only one resident pangolin species, the Ground pangolin (Smutsia temminckii). Very little is known about their biology and behaviour, especially their reproductive physiology. Pangolins are, however, famous for their keratinous scales.
