Idaho Fish and Game and University of Idaho researchers began a multi-year moose research project in early 2020. Adult survival so far has been better than expected, but populations are still declining in the long term. They hope more research will provide clues on how to help Idaho’s largest big game animal rebound, or at least, discover what’s causing their decline in Idaho and beyond.

On January 21st, 1976, the Concorde Jet completed its first ever commercial flight from London to Bahrain in the Persian Gulf and another from Paria to Rio De Janeiro via Senegal in West Africa. At their cruising speeds, Concordes more than doubled the speed of sound at 1,350 miles per hour, which cut air travel time by more than half.

The Pronghorn is one of North America's most impressive mammals. They have the longest land migration in the United States, but they can also travel at speeds of up to 60 miles per hour, making them the fastest land animal in North America. Although the Pronghorn can't match the speed of the cheetah, (Estimated up to 80 MPH), they can run at their top speed for longer periods of time. Perhaps even more impressive than it's speed, is the pronghorn's migration. Herds of pronghorn will migrate up to 150 miles both ways from Wyoming's Upper Green River Basin & The Grand Teton National Park. The only other land animal to travel farther in North America is the caribou.
