I took a wolf ecology class in the Cabinet Mountains of northwestern Montana, where we learned to do "howling surveys" to check for the presence of any wolves in the study area. The data we gathered was used by the US Fish & Wildlife Service to help reintroduce wolves into Yellowstone National Park, WY and central Idaho in 1995 - wooohooooo!!! :-)
Live and let live.
What Gives Me Hope
The Endangered Species Act; wolf reintroduction in the Lower 48 states; the thought of booting the Bush Administration out of the White House
If I were Mayor, I'd make the world a better place by
helping to create a wildlands corrider from Canada to Mexico to aid wildlife migration; banning all ORVs and snowmobiles in national parks; banning all trophy hunting; increasing funding for animal sanctuaries and creating jobs and housing for homeless people; funding educational outreach programs that promote peace and tolerance and challenge damaging stereotypes of people and other species!
