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

If given half a chance, the Mexican Wolves will "bear fruit and multiply"................Two new packs have been formed through the New Mexico/Arizona rewilding zone with pups seemingly being conceived!

2 new wolf packs established in NM

Associated Press

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - Federal wildlife managers have designated two more Mexican gray wolf packs in New Mexico, bringing the number of packs in the American Southwest to 14.

The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service has been trying to return the predators to their historic range in New Mexico and Arizona for more than a dozen years.

There are at least 58 wolves in the wild in the two states, and the most recent annual survey showed at least 18 pups among the packs at the beginning of the year.

Field coordinator Liz Jozwiak says packs in both states are now showing signs of denning behavior, which could mean a new batch of pups.

Jozwiak says the formation of New Mexico's two new packs in June marks a significant step for the population.
