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

Like all wild cats, the Canadian Lynx is an "ambush predator", lying in wait for a meal rather than "coursing" for food like Wolves, Coyotes and Foxes do..............The video below, published on Nov 13, 2014 shows a Canada Lynx ambushing a Snowshoe Hare in mid-leap"............"This footage was captured by remote camera in the John Prince Research Forest(JPRF) in North Central British Columbia, Canada"................ "The forest is co-managed by the University of British Columbia and the Tl'azt'en First Nation's peoples".................. "This video was obtained from JPRF researcher Shannon Crowley, as part of his report for the Habitat Conservation Trust Foundation project(more information on this Initiative below)"

Must-See Video: Lynx Tackles Snowshoe Hare, Caught on Trail Cam


This lynx looks ready for the Super Bowl making tackles like this!
You know what they say: defense wins championships. And this lynx isn’t about to let anyone (or any rabbit) get past its coverage.
Trail cameras are always there to witness the most incredible moments in the woods. This trail cam was placed perfectly to catch this moment, and it’s a gem.
Another video of the age old Lynx and Snowshoe "dance" of predator and prey

The Habitat Conservation Trust Foundation is a non-profit charitable foundation acting as Trustee of the Habitat Conservation Trust. HCTF came into existence because its major contributors (hunters, anglers, trappers, and guide-outfitters) were willing to pay for conservation work above and beyond that expected by government for basic management of wildlife and fish resources.  Unlike license fees that contribute to basic management costs, conservation investments funded by HCTF surcharges benefit contributors by directly enhancing their opportunities to use and enjoy wildlife and fish resources. 
Vision: A future where freshwater fish, wildlife and their habitats are healthy and valued by all British Columbians.
Mission Statement: It is the mission of HCTF to improve the conservation outcomes of BC’s fish and wildlife, and the habitats in which they live. We make a difference by funding conservation projects and by educating and engaging the public about BC’s natural assets.
HCTF is a proposal-driven organization and we invite grant applications from anyone who has a good idea that benefits fish, wildlife and habitat in British Columbia.

Each year, we receive many more applications than can be funded, so we use a thorough review process to determine which projects will provide the greatest conservation benefits within the context of our Strategic Plan. We get results and value for money by carefully selecting projects with a high likelihood of providing demonstrable, measurable benefits to native species of fish and wildlife.
Since the inception of our work in 1981, the Foundation and its predecessors have invested over $155 million in more than 2000 projects across BC. This work would never have happened without the funding commitment to conservation made by the anglers, hunters, guide-outfitters and trappers of BC.
