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

As the insightful and passionate author Rick Bass has been saying for years(Author-activist Rick Bass has written more than 20 books. He’s a board member of the Yaak Valley Forest Council:, the few remaining Grizzly Bears that still call the Cabinet-Yaak watershed in northern Montana home need our protection if they are to perpetuate their numbers into the forever...................The Yaak is the wildest, most diverse valley in the West, home to grizzlies, wolverine, owls, eagles, wolves and pumas even though not one acre of this million acre paradise has been designated as wilderness, the designation that would do the most to optimize the numbers of Grizzlies and other wild creatures who call this place home...............Biologists and other USFW Officials are congratulating themselves on the fact that perhaps 50 of these Bruins exist in this watershed,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,And that they seem to be slowly increasing their numbers..............What if there were only 50 human animals left in a given locale that once harbored thousands............Would we be patting ourselves on the back saying all is well?
