Wild Lands Advocate article, August 2012, by Nigel Douglas. Douglas relates a field trip he made through southwestern Alberta, where the Drywood Yarrow Conservation Partnership is looking at ways to learn to live with grizzlies and other carnivores on the landscape… and seeing positive, tangible benefits.

“The prospects for the future are best summed up by Kelly Cooley with the Cowboys and Carnivores project, a partnership between the Drywood Yarrow Conservation Partnership and Miistakis Institute: ‘The finished puzzle is a functioning ecosystem and a healthy community,’ he says. Who could ask for anything more than that?”

More logging appeared imminent because vandalized landscapes, just like homes with broken windows, tend to invite more abuse.” Andrew Nikiforuk. This tells it all, whether oil and gas, logging, OHVs etc. already exist, then it seems governments are gung ho to keep going and open it all up to more activity and abuse. . . and why we need AWA more than ever.
