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

While endangered, 4000 Jaguars still call Mexico home............In fact, the Government of Mexico has conservation centers for the feline in 18 states around the country, where the species is bred in captivity and later released into the wild.........Our Homeland Security Border Fence is a major impediment to American Jaguar rewilding,,,,,,,,As previously discussed on this blog, Europeans found Jaguars living as far north as San Francisco at the dawn of the 16th century.......Their American habitat stretched eastward through Texas, Oklahoma and Louisiana and across into our southeastern states perhaps as far north as Virginia

4,000 of the Endangered Mexican Jaguar Species Remain in Mexico

Mexico's Environment and Natural Resources Secretariat said it has registered in Mexico the existence of more than 4,000 jaguars in five regions of the country, according to a national census taken to protect this endangered species.

The secretariat's director general for wildlife, Martin Vargas Prieto, said that Mexico has conservation centers for the feline in 18 states around the country, where the species is bred in captivity and later released into the wild.

"The jaguar is a predator that performs a basic ecological role because culling its prey's population densities is one way to limit them," the agency's note said. Jaguars are a "key" species thanks to its position at the "top of the food chain." Furthermore, this feline species "can be the cornerstone for both regional and national conservation plans due to its wide territorial distribution," it said.-
