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

INSANITY is our focus this Saturday morning with one of our most brilliant scientists laying the groundwork for how we continually adversely manipulate our environment for short term versus long term gain-----INSANITY: "Doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results"---Albert Einstein ...........................In this case, our insanity on display though our decimation of one of the most prolific COD FISHERIES in the world--- off of our New England coast,,,,,,,,,,,,Historically, fishermen reaped 70,000 metric tons from this "food oasis" in 1861........... By going "BUFFALO CRAZY" on the Cod, and not allowing for proper regeneration of the stock, the New England fishery only yielded about 54,000 metric tons in 1880, and then went into freefall to about 20,000 tons in the 1920s, to just a few thousand metric tons in recent years-----OUR INSANITY ON DISPLAY, AS IT IS WITH ALL THINGS THAT MAKE OUR PLANET UNIQUE, INHABITABLE AND JUST PLAIN AWE INSPIRING
