Twitter for iPad : Natasha Stromberg Thanks, but where to begin with this? Greed, ignorance, plunder, lack of protection for vital habitat, too much politics, not enough ecology. I despair sometimes. Hope your bears are still doing better?

Twitter Web App : Good piece about positive long-term impact the wolf reintroduction is having in Yellowstone. 20-year study found that, not only are they keeping deer numbers in a healthy, natural balance, but they're also creating more resilient populations. nationalgeographic.com/animals/2020/0… via National Geographic

Twitter Web App : Could we live alongside lynx? A tantalising prospect for some but for others, represents an unwelcome imposition.

Twitter for iPad : hector Peter Cairns Skye and Frisa Scottish Government Forestry and Land Scotland Scottish Natural Heritage Cairngorms Connect Cairngorms Nature RSPB Scotland Fergus Ewing MSP Out of Doors Cairngorms Scottish Environment Protection Agency Hamish Trench That's a pretty bleak outlook. What's your main beef with it, can you not see the benefits? Management is anathema to rewilding. To rewild is to make the ecology of the land complete again - healthier. We've taken a lot from it, now time to give something back.

As you know, most will need some intervention to begin with to kickstart the natural processes. Then, once that is in motion, we can step back and observe.

So how about: 'To make land wilder'? I think that's a notion most folk can relate to. Certainly not about trying to recreate the past - a common misconception.

Twitter Web App : A step in the right direction, but they will be kept behind fencing with a degree of management involved. theguardian.com/environment/20…

Twitter for iPad : NEW PAPER: how do #grizzlybear populations in human-dominated landscapes persist when these same animals appear to be dying at unsustainable rates?

With >40yrs of data and >2,500 bears, we explore the ecology of human-carnivore coexistence in PNASNews:

Twitter for iPad : Shark finning kills over 100 million sharks every year. We must put an end to this most barbaric trade.

Twitter for iPad : Yeah. Without the purists the #rewilding movement wouldn't exist. Think about all the good which has come out of this vision. If it has become contrived it's because the term is misrepresented to mean virtually anything conservation-related. More dilution, less progress. twitter.com/landethics/sta…

Twitter Web App : This is well worth your time. Find out about Eurasian Lynx fact, not fiction. Read an article today leading with the message it was 'way too early to push for lynx'. Why? We have the habitat, we have the ecological need, we have growing public support & open-minded landowners. twitter.com/RewildScotland…
