Public Response to Recent World Animal Protection Report

Posted by Cango on Fri August 16, 2019 in Cango Wildlife Ranch - Out & About.

ATTENTION: WAP (World Animal Protection)

Cango Wildlife Ranch has been in operation for over 34 years, under the current ownership, with the primary focus of premium animal care and public education.

Posted by Cango on Thu June 13, 2019 in Cango Wildlife Ranch - Out & About.

Despite volumes of data currently available on mankind, it is surprising how little we know about other species. A paper published this week in the journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (PNAS) – using data recorded by Cango Wildlife Ranch in collaboration with other zoos and aquariums worldwide - confirms that critical information, such as fertility and survival rates, is missing from global data for more than 98 percent of known species of mammals, birds, reptiles, and amphibians.
