Threatened Canada lynx may be on rise in Vermont's Northeast Kingdom (12/28/13 12:08 pm) | Advocating for Wildlife | Scoop.it
MONTPELIER, Vermont - Although rarely seen, the Canada lynx appears to be increasing in number in Vermont's Northeast Kingdom, an encouraging sign for a species the state considers endangered.
Candy Copeland's insight:

..."In the last century, the elusive animals were pushed out of the state — and many other parts of the country — largely because of the destruction of their forest habitat."  

They don't mention the impacts of trapping for their furs has had on the Species.

Economic Study Before Critical Habitat? | myMotherLode.com | Advocating for Wildlife | Scoop.it
The Tuolumne County Supervisors are keeping a close eye on legislation proposed in Washington, DC.
Candy Copeland's insight:

This is stupid.  Doing an economic impact report prior to designating critical habitat related to the ESA.  Animals and their needed habitat will always lose to man and his greed.  So now, thanks to the greed mongers in Washington we are going to see more ways for them to make money and less wildlife and wild places.
