So cute! A sand kitten sits at her enclosure at the Ramat Gan Safari Park near Tel Aviv. Four sand kittens were born three weeks ago at the safari park. Sand cats are found in the wild in the deserts of northern Africa and southwest and central Asia.
Four tiny newborn chicks chirping away at the Rare Species Conservatory Foundation in Loxahatchee, Florida, represent a beacon of hope for one of North America’s rarest birds, the Florida grasshopper sparrow. Fewer than 150 of these critically endangered birds live in their only habitat, the dry prairie grasslands of central Florida.
