I woke up with this running through my head: “You think you have problems? Talk to Pudu.” Indeed Pudu has problems.
In addition to suffering from habitat loss and parasites (mostly worms), the pudu is also suffering because of the introduction of other types of deer, challenging their food supply. A little more information here.
Habitat destruction is slowing down, so their is hope for Pudu. But what can be done to help ensure their future?
