The spruce-fir moThe spruce-fir moss spider is an endangered animal found only at the tops of the highest peaks in the eastern United States. This video follows a team of scientists as they search for the rare spider in order to carry specimens back to their lab for genetic analysis which will provide information to help guide future conservation efforts. The team included Dr. Marshal Hedin of San Diego State University; Dr. Fred Coyle, retired from Western Carolina University; Dr. Jason Bond of Auburn University; Service biologist Sue Cameron; and Service intern David Caldwell.

One of the most common ungulates of western Africa's grasslands until the early 1900s, the tsessebe has now gone extinct in much of its former range and populations are still declining. The rise of cattle-based human societies in its habitat has resulted in the simultaneous retreat of the tsessebe. Known for its distinctive sentry position on termite mounds as it surveys its range, the tsessebe has a short, glossy, light brown to deep red coat and long, black face. The belly may have purple blotches. The legs are light brown on the lower half, but fade to black on the upper half. The darker colouration spreads across the shoulders to a small but obvious hump between the shoulder blades. The tail ends in a coarse black tuft. Both sexes have ringed S-shaped horns. Males are slightly larger than females, and have a darker coat.
