Perceptions of Predatory Wildlife

December 1, 2015

Wild Lands Advocate article from December 2015 by Tempest Emery.

Typically, the predator is understood as an animal that kills and eats other animals for food. What does this understanding mean for how we regard and treat these animals? This conventional identification defines the predator solely in relation to its carnivorous tendencies and its ability to inflict harm upon other creatures. This blanket categorization obscures the differences among species of predators and among the individuals comprising their populations.

We have spectacular wilderness in Alberta, much of it under some form of protection. Every square millimetre of it has had to be fought for - will always have to be fought for, forever and ever. The struggle to retain and repair wilderness is conducted not just by a few individuals, but by large numbers of committed people, from all walks of life, all working in various ways toward the same end. We need to be grateful to all of them.
