- Posted on August 26, 2013 | No CommentsPolitics, not sound wolf scientific research, has influenced the US Fish and Wildlife Service’s efforts toward removing gray wolves across the country from the protection of the Endangered Species Act. Jay Mallonee, researcher from Wolf & Wildlife Studies, has found that left alone, wolves regulate their own populations with highly sophisticated social interactions within the pack. Unfortunately, the hunting and ranching lobbies don't support the theory we should learn to live with top predators as a necessity for ecosystem health.
- Posted on June 11, 2013 | No CommentsPresident Obama's Department of the Interior announced the national delisting of all wolves except the Mexican wolf. Prominent conservationists argue this is wrong-headed because (1) the wolf isn’t really recovered, and (2) Existing state management is so bad that the “recovered” population will soon decline to nothing but a tiny token population.

- Posted on March 27, 2013 | 1 CommentWestern environmental groups oppose the anti-scientific "political" Endangered Species delisting of gray wolves across the U.S. by Fish and Wildlife Service. Reduced wolf numbers will reduce positive ecological effects of these top predators and permit barbaric hunting methods.
- Posted on January 4, 2013 | 1 CommentWildlife Agencies advocate hunting helps grizzly recovery. The best available science, however, suggests predators including bears, wolves, mountain lion and coyotes have intricate social interactions that are disrupted or damaged by indiscriminate killing from hunters and trappers. Habitat protection is the main way to protect the fledgling population of grizzly bears as well as avoid human-bear conflicts.

We must make the price of fossil fuels honest, reflecting their cost to society including the economic devastation wrought by storms like Sandy, the toll on farmland and ecosystems, as well as priceless human lives.
- Posted on October 4, 2011 | 2 CommentsPines of the Rockies are dying, wildfires racing across the Southwest deep into Texas, and Colorado's aspens have declined due to lack of water. Worldwide the problem stretches from Southern Africa, the Amazon, Siberia, Algeria, and Australia. Without forest, levels of carbon dioxide rises and the climate will continue to warm.
- Posted on September 2, 2011 | No CommentsThe paths of grizzly bears and humans often collide, with fatal consequences for both parties. Despite protected lands such as national parks, the former's survival depends upon establishing roaming corridors across private land and highways. The Vital Ground Foundation is doing just that.
- Posted on August 4, 2011 | No CommentsFor more than 12,000 years, the intermountain West's native peoples have called the lands known as Yellowstone and Glacier National Parks "home." This program explores modern indigenous perspectives on these great wilderness areas and explores the cultural divide that separates modern times from the not-so-distant past.
- Posted on July 19, 2011 | 2 CommentsAfter centuries of fear and superstition, research has given the wolf a new image as a social creature with an indispensible role in ecosystems. Unfortunately, wolves in the northern Rocky Mountains have been removed from the endangered species list. The Druid Pack of Yellowstone National Park symbolizes the rise and fall of this much maligned predator.
- Posted on February 7, 2011 | 1 CommentThe bison slaughter is proposed to appease the intractable and unreasonable demands of Montana's livestock industry to zero tolerance for native bison on Montana soil. All of this is justified in the name of controlling brucellosis, a disease that can cause domestic livestock to abort their first calf.
