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

Following up on yesterdays Post (and others over the past years) regarding living in harmony with ones surroundings by planting native trees, shrubs and flowers, I finally got to the point where my southern California property could become certified by THE NATIONAL WILDLIFE FEDERATION as CERTIFIED WILDLIFE HABITAT--------It is now providing the four basic habitat elements needed for wildlife to thrive: FOOD, WATER, COVER AND PLACES TO RAISE YOUNG................I encourage all of you to follow suit and not let nature just be something that we travel to , rather making a conscious effort to become part and parcel with the natural world right outside your front and back door, expanding upon whatever native habitat that exists in your neighborhood..........The critters will thank you!!!!
