“REWILDING AMERICA” on YOUTUBE

My slide presentation “REWILDING AMERICA” is set up on Youtube as an “unlisted” video, which means you cannot find it by searching Youtube, you must use this link to access the video page.  Once on the video page, you can copy and share the link.  You can also watch the video by clicking the “play” button below.

In this presentation I cover the basic doctrines of REWILDING and demonstrate how it has become FEDERAL policy.

  • Basic definitions – “Cores, Corridors, and Carnivores”
  • Critical Habitat Designations and Species Recovery Zones        (Frogs and toads, grizzly bears, jaguars, and gray wolves.)
  • GAP Analysis, PAD-US, UN-WDPA
  • Landscape Conservation Cooperatives
  • Flaws in the Endangered Species Act
  • Bi-national, tri-national and international treaty obligations
  • Steps we must take in order to derail the REWILDING agenda.
  • Why the truth matters! 

The soundtrack is not the best, so I will apologize ahead of time.  However, the information is just too important, and too timely, to spend any more time editing.

Please note:  This presentation is intended as a basic introduction to REWILDING. There is much more that can be said about each of the various topics presented in the video.   When I share this presentation in person with a group, I provide handouts with additional information and bring with me numerous studies and thousands of pages of documentation in over a dozen notebooks.

If you have any questions or comments, please post them here, or on the Youtube video page.

    Well done Steve. I took notes frequently as I viewed and listened to your presentation, realizing quickly that the information and documentation you were presenting was tying things together for me on this topic. Seeing the maps and refreshing my memory regarding the various US treaties and, in particular,, Goal 15 of the UN 2030 Sustainable Development Agenda was really helpful for me – thank you! Loved hearing the amazing story about your personal interaction with Temple Grandin- Wow! Small world …Big God

    ‘Human friendly land use policy’

    Translation: We think we can ‘own’ land and anything that we don’t like we will shoot and kill.

    Land is not a commodity to be brought and sold. Land is the property of all of the Earth’s species. By ‘human friendly’ you mean ‘human only’ or human-centred.

  3. No, that’s not what I mean. I’m talking about wise management. Granted, regulations are needed to protect against greed, yet all life is dependent on natural resources. Humans have a right to use resources just like any other creature. While I advocate for multiple use of our public lands, I am also an advocate for full protection where it is appropriate. I do not advocate for single use of our public lands (conservation), as the enviro whackos do. Allowing a non-endangered high impact predator such as the gray wolf to spread recklessly across settled landscapes attacking limited ungulate populations and spreading disease is insane and disingenuous. If conservationists were really concerned about protecting the genetic integrity of gray wolves, and their survival as a distinct “variety” of animal, they would advocate keeping them far to the north, far far away from settled landscapes, ruthlessly, by any means necessary, in order to prevent hybridization between wolves and coyotes and wolves and dogs.
