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

Click on the links below to tell the Obama Administration not to delist Wolves across the USA

Take action

The clock is ticking down
 for our nation's wolves.

The Obama Administration

has given the public just 90
 days to comment on its
 disastrous plan to strip
 wolves of their vital
 Endangered Species Act
 protections across most
of the Lower 48 states.

NRDC and other conservation

groups have set an ambitious
goal of generating one million
 messages of protest to stop
this far-reaching assault on wolves.

You responded to our first call to

action and sent a message to
Interior Secretary Sally Jewell
 asking her to maintain essential
federal protections for wolves. Now,
 we need you to make your voice
 heard once again.

Please send a message

 directly to the U.S. Fish and
Wildlife Service, which has put
 forward this reckless plan. Tell
 them to give wolves a fighting
chance at recovery!

The return of gray wolves to areas

 like the Northern Rockies and the
 western Great Lakes has been one
of the greatest conservation success
stories of our time.

But wolves are only starting to

return to large portions of their
former range, like the Pacific
Northwest. Lone wolves have
 crossed into California, Utah,
 Colorado and states in the Northeast. 

Removing federal protections
 now would shut the door on
wolf recovery long before the
 job is done.

This reckless plan, more the result
 of political pressure than sound
science or policy, would throw
national wolf recovery into reverse.

In fact, a group of the nation's top
 wildlife scientists has sent a letter
 to the administration, objecting to
 its proposal.

Wolves will not recover unless
they remain protected. That's
why it's so critical that we keep
 the pressure on that agency to
withdraw this horrendous plan.

Please send your message

to the Fish and Wildlife Service
 right now. Call on them to keep
 wolves protected under the
Endangered Species Act.

We're at a crucial turning point

 in this fight -- one that will
determine whether wolves
 are allowed to survive and
 thrive in America. Thank
you for making your voice
 heard in their defense.
