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 Obama administration has been retreating from endangered species conservation in recent years"............This is espcially true as it relates to the Red Wolf restoration program that has been put under review by the USFW Service............."This Agency under Obama has quietly eliminated the position of the red wolf recovery coordinator".............. "All the signs point toward a U.S. FWS that lacks the guts or the enthusiasm to fight any more for the sake of controversial species".........." The red wolf is a challenging species to recover"............... "But the United States is the most powerful and innovative nation-state in the history of the world, and it didn’t use to be our practice to just roll over when the going got tough"................. "We can afford to rise up to the social, financial and technical hurdles associated with bringing back the red wolf, even in the face of substantial interference from the wolf’s adaptable and fecund sister species, the coyote"............... "By doing so, we will restore much-needed ecological balance to our eastern forests, which in many areas are suffering great damage from overabundant deer and raccoon populations"-----Ron Sutherland, Ph.D., of Durham is a conservation scientist for the Wildlands Network.
