Biologist John Way suggested this article–“On the hunt for the elusive Adirondack wolf.
It seems that the belief that wolves have, or are about to reinhabit the Adirondacks is not new, nor is debate over what the eastern coyote really is.

  1. Hi Ralph:

    Just wish to let you know about the work we are doing in trying to restore wolves to New York’s Adirondack State Park. Three times the size of Yellowstone.

    I like your website!

    All the best in both life and work.

‎"At some point we must draw a line across the ground of our home and our being, drive a spear into the land and say to the bulldozers, earthmovers, government and corporations, “thus far and no further.” If we do not, we shall later feel, instead of pride, the regret of Thoreau, that good but overly-bookish man, who wrote, near the end of his life, “If I repent of anything it is likely to be my good behaviour."
