STUDY SUGGESTS POSSIBILITY
not Grizzly Bears,
not Bald Eagles, but:
.. They migrate for 400 miles each year. They travel the same routes. They are dwindling in numbers.
.. Six of their eight migration routes have been lost to the encroaching development. One part of their current route is just barely as wide as a football field; due to residential development. They are in danger of vanishing because further development is about to wipe out the routes between summer and winter ranges.
.. If they go -- -- there will be one less prey species for the wolves, the bears, the coyotes, the cougars, and less carrion for the other critters like eagles, hawks, ravens, beetles, etc.
.. Mongabay.com reported on a study by the Wildlife Conservation Society (WCS) and National Park Service.
.. The study is encapsulated HERE.
.. This could be the least publicised & most important eclogical issue facing Yellowstone this decade. Could the elk be next?
