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

Subject: Published article on wolf management

Most of you know that I have been a wolf biologist in Montana for the past 20 years.  I also write for ActionLine, the magazine for Friends of Animals.  Enclosed in a PDF of the current article that has not actually come out yet, but will when the magazine is released within the next few weeks.

  The article is a review of the recent Environmental Assessment that all wolf management agencies in Montana signed off on.  Thought you might be interested, especially if you have read George Wuerthner's recent editorial about wolf management.  My article helps to qualify many of the points that he made.  Thanks.
