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

Justin Trudeau, the new Prime Minister of Canada hopefully agrees with Sean Nixon (a lawyer with Ecojustice) regarding the DEAD WRONG British Columbia Wolf killing/Caribou mitigation paradigm.............. “This looks like the forest industry in B.C. is either directing the government’s policy on species at risk where that might affect timber harvesting, or at a minimum the provincial government is running the policy by the forest industry to make sure that it’s okay with them"............. "Either is troubling"..... "If a provincial government does not effectively protect any endangered species listed under SARA, Ottawa can impose regulations on provincial land".......... "Given B.C.’s approach so far(kill wolves to save Caribou rather than expanding forest habitat to protect Caribou) which seems more concerned about logging interests than the needs of caribou, the federal government may have to do just that"............Prime Minister Trudeau----BALL TO YOU SIR on this issue!
