Grizzly bears, black bears, wolves, coyotes, cougars/ mountain lions,bobcats, wolverines, lynx, foxes, fishers and martens are the suite of carnivores that originally inhabited North America after the Pleistocene extinctions. This site invites research, commentary, point/counterpoint on that suite of native animals (predator and prey) that inhabited The Americas circa 1500-at the initial point of European exploration and subsequent colonization. Landscape ecology, journal accounts of explorers and frontiersmen, genetic evaluations of museum animals, peer reviewed 20th and 21st century research on various aspects of our "Wild America" as well as subjective commentary from expert and layman alike. All of the above being revealed and discussed with the underlying goal of one day seeing our Continent rewilded.....Where big enough swaths of open space exist with connective corridors to other large forest, meadow, mountain, valley, prairie, desert and chaparral wildlands.....Thereby enabling all of our historic fauna, including man, to live in a sustainable and healthy environment. - Blogger Rick

Biologist spotted seven moose in aerial surveys.

RAY BROOK, N.Y.— A biologist with the state Department of Environmental Conservation says the Adirondack moose population explosion just hasn't happened yet.

Biologists haven't seen a great increase in moose numbers since they started doing aerial surveys in 2007, Ed Reed from the DEC told the Adirondack Daily Enterprise.

There were two aerial surveys this winter concentrating on a 77-square-mile area just south of Upper Chateaugay Lake, which Reed said has probably the highest moose density in the state.
