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

Wyoming has a "kill-at-will" management plan for Wolves impacting 80% of the land mass of the state----The Wolf is now off the Federal Endangered Species List and nimrods from all over the West will be in high gear seeking to kill or trap 170 of the Lobos


Center for Biological Diversity

Tthe federal government has approved Wyoming's wolf-slaughter plan, stripping protections from wolves in 80 percent of the state.  Hundreds of these magnificent animals, critical to the ecology and wildlife of Wyoming, will now be wiped out in the designated kill zone. We have to stop this massacre.

As we've been writing you all month, the Center for Biological Diversity is leading wolf advocacy across the entire United States, and we're in this fight to win for Wyoming's wolves. Help us now to take emergency legal action to stop the wolf hunt in court by making a generous donation to the Emergency Wolf Protection Fund.

Wyoming's kill-at-will plan will promote the quick extermination of 170 wolves, from aerial gunning to gassing pups in their dens. Wolves are already being killed in vast numbers in Montana and Idaho -- we have to stop that killing at Wyoming's border and save this critical population of wolves.

This news confirms that our work is needed more than ever. Our lawyers, scientists and activists are working with allies right now to launch a legal case to stop the massacre of the Rocky Mountains' last federally protected wolves. We need your support and we need it now.
You can help today by making a donation to our Emergency Wolf Protection Fund and passing this appeal along.

We can't let these intelligent, majestic animals be slaughtered to satisfy the whims of ranchers and politicians. Tens of thousands of people have written letters and made phone calls to save the wolves, and the United States has spent nearly 40 years bringing wolves back from the brink of extinction. It's one of the most incredible wildlife recovery stories in America's history. We can't let today's decision turn back all the good we've done.

That's why we need to get into court as soon as possible to uphold the will of the people and laws protecting our wildlife.

The Center can save Wyoming's wolves. We have an unparalleled record of stopping wolf killing and upholding the law. Oregon's wolves are protected right now because of swift action by our lawyers and activists -- and just yesterday wolves in Washington got a reprieve from the kill list because of our work. With your help, we can do the same for Wyoming's wolves and work with allies to secure lasting protections.

But the clock is ticking fast. Our window to respond to today's bad news and stop the hunt before it starts is closing fast. Please -- make a generous gift today to our Emergency Wolf Protection Fund.
For the wild,

P.S. We need to stop the massacre before it starts. Join with us and help save Wyoming's wolves by donating right now to our Emergency Wolf Protection Fund.
