I have chosen to write my special special paper about Black–tailed prairie dogs. The scientific name for them is Cynomys Iudovicianus. Prairie dogs were once found from the great plains from southern Canada to northern Mexico. They were once eradicated from Arizona. In the United States today they survive on the plains of Montana, Dakotas, Nebraska, Kansas, Oklahoma, Texas, New Mexico, Colorado, Arizona, Utah, and Wyoming.
The Sac and Fox have done a ton of moving around throughout their history, they have lived in Missouri, Kansas, Nebraska, Canada, Michigan, Wisconsin, Illinois, and Iowa. If you’re counting that is two different countries and seven different states in the United States. After the Black Hawk War they moved in the Kansas, Oklahoma, and Missouri areas were they have remained to this date. In 1990 there were an estimated 4,800 Sac and Fox Descendants still remaining in the United States and in 2000 there were 420
The Meskwaki were one of five or six politically allied central Algonquin speaking peoples. They were named Foxes by the French, who first encounter them in the Great lakes region in the mid-1600s. Their migration to Wisconsin was related to the displacement of native peoples resulting from inter-tribal warfare in the Lower Great Lakes region. Between 1712 and 1737, the French and Meskwaki, engaged in an extent period of conflict known as the French and Fox wars. By 1730, the Meskwaki were forced

The number of wolves has now rebounded to nearly a thousand. Wolves are relatives to coyotes, foxes, jackals, dingoes, and our pet dogs. Some people mistake wolves and coyotes, but wolves are much larger and stockier. A wolf is like a German shepherd except with longer legs, bigger feet, a wider head, and a long, bushy tail. Like a
Wolves, moose, vegetation, birds, foxes, and ticks inhabit the landscape of Isle Royale, who all contribute to the dynamics that occur on this island. Isle Royale is a 210-square-mile area, located 15-20 miles off of the coast of Ontario in Canada, in Lake Superior (pg.11). Although
It's a sad and depressing scene in Alaska's Kachemak Bay region. While wildlife officials are used to seeing sick and dead sea otters, http://www.care2.com/greenliving/5-facts-you-didnt-know-about-sea-otters.html they're not used to seeing so many of them and in this condition. Unlike otters in the past, these otters looked surprisingly healthier. 200 Reports of Sick and Dead Otters Over a Couple of Months As reported in KBBI, http://kbbi.org/post/scientists-investigate-otter-deaths-0 whatever is hitting the otters is hitting them fast and hard.
This is why wolves need to stay on the island to control the biotic community and environment. As you can see, wolves are an important factor in the health of Isle Royale. Without them the whole island could perish. That’s why we can’t let them become extinct from the island. In conclusion, new wolves need to be brought to Isle Royale in order to repair the balance of the ecosystem and the overall well-being of the
It was once a "top dog" in the borderlands. They eat large and small mammals like deer, elk and rabbits. After being wiped out in the U.S. and only a few animals were remaining in Mexico. They were reintroduced to the wild in Arizona 1998. There are only about 300 Mexican wolves in total.

Even though he was five feet tall, in Grade Eight, and had very little natural ability, he was determined to make the basketball team no matter what. Seeing this, the coach suggested that he should take
In both of these articles by Christine Dell’Amore and Matt Miller, they discuss how these top predators impact the island, why they are they important, and should humans interfere? On the island of Isle Royale, there is a variety of animals that mostly just consume vegetation; therefore, they need wolves to balance out the food chain. But, the island is only accessible during the winter when stable ice bridges are created. Unfortunately, the ice bridges have not been forming due to warmer winters. Leaving a small count of wolves on the island with no new genes to mix in.
