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

CANADIAN WOLF COALITION'S Sadie Parr seeking our donations to acquire additional acreage adjacent to the GREAT BEAR RAINFOREST in British Columbia, home to the White spirit Black Bears and Marine based wolves......a worthy cause indeed!

In 2005 the Raincoast Conservation Foundation made astounding headway to protect the unique diversity of animals often hunted for "trophies" along the northwest coast of British Columbia.   By creating the Great Bear Rainforest, an area three times the size of Yellowstone National Park,  marine-based wolves are safe at home in the largest expanse of temperate rainforest left on the planet.   Land and sea intermingle here and often UNITE in amazing predator-prey relationships where commercial trophy hunting is not allowed.  
Now the Raincoast Conservation Foundation wants to protect MORE, but they can't do it without your help.  The new land is adjacent to the already protected area, but here wolves and other animals still fall victim to needless killing through guided trophy hunting tours. 
Help extend the PROTECTION to include more wolf families through your financial contribution to purchase the land and maintain it for wild coastal wolves to run free along the shorelines with pups as they fish.  These wolves are different from their land-based grey wolf cousins, genetically and behaviourally.  Learn more about them at and how you can help ensure their wild future today!
These wolves are irreplaceable. 
Another major threat to coastal wolves and the vast array of wildlife home in the area (salmon, sea lions, orcas, black-tailed deer, grizzly and black bears, to name a few…) is a destructive proposal called the Enbridge Pipeline and the ocean tankers that would accompany it.  The question is not if there would be a catastrophic oil spill in this pristine coastal setting, but when it would be!  This unnecessary risk is not worth taking.  Don't let BC be the link to set Alberta's Tar Sands Oil far and wide via the sea.  Learn more through Pacific Wild's Video Documentary
This group ( has also been working hard to document and protect the distinctive characteristics of coastal wolves, and create awareness about the need to preserve wolves along the Pacific Coast.  Speak to your MLA to oppose the Enbridge Pipeline.

Thank you for staying informed about conservation needs, goals and efforts!  WE can't do it without YOU.
