Following Alice the Moose along the A2A Wildway, Part II

In this second installment of a series of blog posts following wildways trekker John Davis along the proposed connection between Algonquin Provincial Park to Adirondack Park (A2A), John explores the wild beauty of the trail that Alice the Moose pioneered nearly a decade and a half ago. Finally, in Wellesley Island State Park, John joins A2A friends in celebrating the wild habitat link. The trekkers agreed to redouble their efforts to protect and strengthen connections between the great parks of Ontario and New York. Photo: John Davis

Born to Rewild Premiere in Albuquerque, New Mexico

Wildlands Network and New Mexico Wildways present the second New Mexico premiere of Born to Rewild on Sunday, October 29 in Albuquerque. Born to Rewild follows John Davis’s 5,000-mile, person-powered trek from Mexico to Canada, or TrekWest. The film captures the essence of our movement to put Conservation in Motion™, and drives home the need to protect wildlife habitat connectivity across the continent. Photo: Karsten Heuer

Celebrating the Vision of the Eastern Wildway

Two years ago, Wildlands Network convened an Eastern Conservation Summit to set a plan to see eastern wildlands reconnected at a continental scale. Using our successful Western Wildway Network as a model, we began to put together a network of conservationists working at all scales along the Wildway. It has grown and evolved since then into our own Eastern Wildway Network.

Hikers Travel Combined 400 Miles to Help Create International Trail

In this story from northern New York’s Watertown Daily Times, reporter Marcus Wolf covers our own John Davis’s trek along the Algonquin to Adirondack (A2A) connection, which spans across the U.S.-Canada border.

Wildlands Network’s wildways trekker, John Davis, and conservation friends from the U.S. and Canada are exploring the Algonquin to Adirondack connection on the ground this month, simultaneously hiking northwest and southeast from their respective countries toward the St. Lawrence River, to celebrate the historic journey of Alice the Moose along this trail and investigating the possibility of an eventual A2A International Scenic Trail.

State and Federal Agency Justification for Limited Mexican Wolf Range Challenged by Preeminent Group of Scientists

A new letter written by eight internationally-respected scientific experts, published in this month’s Journal of Wildlife Management, directly challenges the information relied on by state and federal wildlife agencies to limit the recovery range for Mexican wolves in the United States. The newly published work provides significant evidence that the draft Mexican wolf recovery plan, released in June, requires revisions to be scientifically credible. Photo: Juan Carlos Bravo

Bishop Launches Attack on Public Lands Mining Bans

Rep. Rob Bishop (R-Utah) is calling for a reversal of federal mining bans enacted during the Obama administration to protect Grand Canyon watersheds, national forests in Oregon and other pristine public lands. Public lands at risk include 1 million acres in the greater Grand Canyon region, which safeguards critical regional wildlife corridors and habitat for numerous native species, many of which exist nowhere else on Earth.

Public Lands Remind Us that Diversity Is Our Strength

Saturday, September 30th is National Public Lands Day, the nation’s largest volunteer effort for public lands. While most Americans love their public lands, we recognize that many of our beloved parks and monuments fail to fully embrace the history of the cultures that lived and thrived in these places long before Teddy Roosevelt started protecting them. But that’s quickly changing. Photo: U.S. Department of the Interior

Rewilding Feature: A Conversation with Jon Huertas

Our celebrity ambassador, Jon Huertas, is a big hit in Hollywood, having played a leading role on “Castle” before taking on his current persona as Miguel on NBC’s blockbuster family drama, “This Is Us.” In this exclusive interview, Jon shares highlights from his recent rafting trip down the Colorado River with Wildlands Network, and tells us about his early introduction to wildlife, his passion for mountain lions, and his commitment to educating young people about why we need wildness.
