Diputado introduce iniciativa de reforma para que los pasos de fauna sean obligatorios en carreteras federales de México

El congresista mexicano Germán Ralis presentó un proyecto de ley para enmendar las leyes mexicanas de carreteras, puentes y autotransporte federal, de modo que los cruces de vida silvestre se vuelvan obligatorios para las nuevas carreteras. Si se aprueba, 2019 podría ser un año brillante para la conectividad de vida silvestre en México. Foto: Wildlands Network

A brown, black and white wolf runs across the frame, toward the left of the frame. The wolf's front paws are off the ground and his tongue is out. He's running on dry scrubby ground.

Managing Public Lands to Restore the Mexican Wolf

While our lawsuit against the USFWS for their flawed Mexican wolf recovery plan works its way through the courts, there is plenty of work to do on the ground. Wildlands Network hopes to play a key role in these ongoing efforts by working with the Forest Service to design management strategies for public lands that will give Mexican wolves a better shot at recovery.

The Snow Leopard

Peter Matthiessen’s classic memoir, “The Snow Leopard,” chronicles Matthiessen’s journey with renowned wildlife biologist George Schaller into the remote mountains of Nepal, where Schaller set out to study the mating behavior of Himalayan blue sheep. This gritty pair of adventurers also hoped to catch a glimpse of the rare and elusive snow leopard—an endangered wild cat native to central Asia who still finds limited refuge in some of the harshest alpine terrain on the planet. Matthiessen’s book begs the question: What does it actually mean to SEE a snow leopard? Photo: Snow Leopard Trust
