Wildland Network and Other Conservationists Intend to File Lawsuit to Protect Mexican Wolves

Because the USFWS’s final Mexican Wolf Recovery Plan, released last November, is not enough to ensure the recovery of the Mexican wolf, Wildlands Network gave the USFWS notice last year that we intended to file a lawsuit challenging the plan’s unscientific recommendations. The first piece of that lawsuit will be filed next week. Photo: Eric Kilby

Deep Rewilding

Dr. Bill Lynn, research scientist and thought-leader in the field of ethics and sustainability, is especially passionate about human-animal relations. Through his teachings, writings, and presentations, Bill explores the complicated ethical terrain surrounding our co-existence with wolves and other wildlife, deeply probing the difficult questions of why and how we should care for nature and society. In this essay, Bill urges conservationists to think beyond the fundamental science of rewilding and reconnect with its ethical roots. Photo: J. Henry Fair

Healthy Waters are Dependent on Healthy Land

Southern Maryland Online published this story on how healthy waters–on which humans depend–depend on healthy, connected landscapes.
