    Thanks for the link, Ralph! I’ve been extremely busy with the end of the quarter, but should have some more research posted very soon!

    Once again, JB, Thanks for doing this work, it’s release is timely and appropriate.

    For those who are interested, we are currently constructing a survey on wolf recovery in the US that I plan to post to the blog. I would greatly appreciate the participation of anyone who regularly reads the Wildlife News! Although the sampling will be far from random, we will post the results on the blog once we have enough responses.

      Sure……..I’m not a biologist, nor a wildlife expert, and I haven’t read the WN regularly for nearly as long as many here, but I’ll participate if you see in any benefit in it.

‎"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."
