- Coyotes proliferate despite year-round hunting Licensed hunters and trappers killed 1,810 coyotes across Pennsylvania in 1990. In 2013, the total was a record 40,956. But coyotes are thriving, here and across the Northeast.
- New Missoula lab uses DNA to expose hidden wildlifes The technicians in the US Forest Service's new lab building can spot the presence (or absence) of specific fish in a whole river drainage from a cup of water. They can trace the family tree of a sage grouse from a tail feather. Don't get them started on what they can tell when a grizzly bear poops in the woods, if they get hold of the poop.
- Report states need to protect rivers A new report released by the U.S. Forest Service highlights the critical role Idaho's rivers play in providing refuge for imperiled fish in a warming world. The report, called Climate Shield, was released March 1 and produced by the Forest Service Rocky Mountain Research Station.
- Washington's wolverines stage tenuous comeback Even 20 years ago, a flourishing wolverine population would have seemed unlikely in the North Cascades. The creatures were eradicated from Washington by the early 1900s, the victims of trapping and poisoning. In the 1990s, however, tracks and camera traps began testifying to their renewed presence.
- USFS, TWS Launch Program for Native American Students The US Forest Service and The Wildlife Society will launch a Native American Professional Development Program, which will provide valuable knowledge to Native American students who are interested in becoming wildlife biologists. The program will allow students to learn and gain beneficial hand-on experience while working with a wildlife professional on the approved project.
