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

We hear today from Executive Director of the Raincoast Conservation Foundation, Chris Genovali on the "upside down", genocidal "Wolf Kill" which is going on in British Columbia...........This "removal", all in the name of protecting the Caribou herds which we have put under great stress via land alternation activities(mining, roads,industrial logging, industry, etc, etc) ..............."The wolf cull is little more than a transparent attempt by the government to appear to be doing something to save caribou, while avoiding the true heavy-lifting needed to adequately protect and restore caribou habitat".....Their own document on this wolf removal process entitled----- "Experimental Wolf Reduction to Enhance the Recovery of Threatened Caribou Herds in the South Peace,"----- "provides insights into the truly experimental nature of the wolf cull, as the title indicates"......., "It confirms what critics have been asserting all along; slaughtering wolves to ostensibly protect caribou has no basis in scientific fact and is a desperate, and ultimately futile, attempt to compensate for the devastating impacts of habitat destruction".......Renowned Carnivore biologist Paul Pacquet sums it up best: "Governments habitually favour the destruction of wolves over any consequential protection, enhancement, or restoration of caribou habitat".............. "As a result, caribou are on a long-term slide to extinction; not because of what wolves and other predators are doing but because of what humans have already done"..
