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

The first step has been taken to stop the poisoning of Wildlife in California------The California Department of Pesticide Regulation has put into effect as of July 1 the prohibition of products containing d-CON, the 2nd generation anticoagulant rodenticide sold in stores to consumers..............This law limits super-toxic rodenticide use beyond 50 feet of manmade structures.................. The law does not ban the worst poisons themselves.........They will still be available for widespread use by licensed commercial and agricultural pest-control operators..............We must put pressure to eliminiate their use at this level as well if we have any hope of having a healthy carnivore suite in California and the rest of our 50 states
