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

Our friend, Coyote Biologist Jon Way our of Massachusetts, recently penned an article for INTERNATIONAL WOLF magazine that seeks to explain why Coyotes do not seem to engender the same type of empathy by the general public that Wolves do

Love wolves, hate coyotes

Click below to read a new publication I wrote that just came out!
Way, J. G. 2012. Love wolves and hate coyotes? A conundrum for canid enthusiasts. International Wolf 22(4, winter): 8-11.

 This is a popular (not peer reviewed) article summarizing my (and others) feelings on why society treats wolves so much differently than coyotes.

Jonathan Way, Ph.D., has a B.S. (UMass Amherst), M.S. (UConn Storrs), and doctorate (Boston College) related to the study of eastern coyotes/coywolves. He is the author of Suburban Howls, an account of his experiences studying eastern coyotes in Massachusetts. Jon is seeking an institution that will support him and his goals for long-term ecological research. He runs an organization Eastern Coyote Research, works seasonally for Cape Cod National Seashore, is a part time post-doctoral researcher with the Yellowstone Ecological Research Center, frequently travels to the Yellowstone area, and is looking for a publisher for two completed book projects: My Yellowstone Experience and Coywolf.
