Blogging for the Gray Wolf

By Saving the Environment You Help Save Wolves: Camille Seaman is friend to both Your Support to build the Earth Academy: A 21st Century Hyper-Local Sustainable Village. The Earth Academy starts with you. Our mission is to build self-sustaining, environmentally responsible communities as beacons to the world that it is possible to live in a way which will ensure a healthy environment for future generations. Through pilot programs made possible by crowd funding, we hope to raise the tide of awareness and institute real change, one project at a time. Detroit is our first project. My intention is to give you HOPE about climate change. Responding to these facts, the Earth Academy steps up to serve as a beacon of light and inspiration. In Detroit, The Earth Academy will build a community that houses 600-1000 people, grows it's own food, gathers it's own water, treats it's own waste and does not burn fossil fuels. What is a hyper local village? The main purpose of these villages is to demonstrate that a fossil free future can be beautiful. More Awesome News tee shirt Poster

The Wolf Army Cryptid In cryptozoology and sometimes in cryptobotany, a cryptid (from the Greek κρύπτω, krypto, meaning "hide") is a creature or plant whose existence has been suggested but is not discovered or documented by the scientific community.[1] Cryptids often appear in folklore and mythology, leading to stories and unfounded belief about their existence. Well known examples include the Yeti in the Himalayas, the Loch Ness Monster in Scotland, Bigfoot in North America and the Chupacabra in Latin America. Overview[edit] The term was coined by John E. Wall in a 1983 letter to the International Society of Cryptozoology newsletter.[2] The prefix "crypt-" is Greek and means "hidden" or "secret". Skeptics[1] contend that evidence for the existence of cryptids is typically limited to anecdotal evidence or other forms of evidence insufficient to withstand normal scientific scrutiny by the general zoological community.

GRAY WOLVES ARE NECESSARY AND VALUABLE TO ALL OF US Dr. Stephen StringhamJanuary 26, 2014 Brown bears fishing for salmon at Brooks Falls in Katmai National park. Pete Hamel / NPS One of the Alaska’s most popular outdoor activities is watching wildlife -- for instance bears, wolves, moose, Dall sheep, sea lions, or songbirds. Wise government would do everything possible to assure the health and growth of this golden goose. Aren’t hunters just shooting themselves in the foot when they try increasing the popularity of hunting, while denigrating viewing? Stephen Stringham, Ph.D., is a wildlife biologist, director of the Bear Viewing Association, a wildlife viewing guide and a former hunting guide.

A conversation with Idaho wolf advocate Lynne Stone A native Oregonian, Lynne Stone grew up on a wheat farm in Condon and moved to the Sawtooth Mountains region of Idaho in the early 1980s to be a ski bum. Today, she’s executive director of the Boulder-White Clouds Council and one of the Idaho’s fiercest wolf advocates. For her efforts, she’s been threatened and attacked by anti-wolf people and harassed by county law enforcement officials. I had the opportunity to get together with Lynne in Ketchum last Monday, where, over lunch, she told me about her experiences in defense of wolves in the northern Rockies. 2009 was a discouraging year for Lynne, as she saw virtually the entire Basin Butte pack, which lived around her home in the Stanley area, killed by Wildlife Services. While many Idaho hunters are vocal in their opposition to wolves, it is, according to Lynne, the livestock industry that really drives wolf killing. “If ranchers don’t want to cooperate with wolves, it’s really hard to keep wolves,” she says.

Wolf Haven International | Working For Wolf Conservation aqutaq window gazing wolves Why the states have wolf management wrong - National wildlife conservation In this Powell Tribune post, Wolf hunt ends with 24 taken, written by Gib Mathers, the big, glaring error in state wolf management is revealed. The states, eager for revenue (gotten through the selling of hunting and trapping licenses), have gotten basic principles of wolf 'management' all wrong. With wolves, 'management' is not as simple as removing individual bucks from a breeding population of deer - Wolves live in FAMILIES. Everything they do revolves around the well-being of their families - Including teaching their pups (who stay 'children', to be taught and protected, for three years), just as we teach our own children. Wolves pass down learned information (for instance, to stay away from livestock) to their family, to their impressionable pups, in essence passing down a unique 'culture' of conduct and survival tools specific to each pack. That includes respect for Man and his livestock. Wolves LEARN. Wolves just want to eat. But that doesn't mean we will never SEE them.
