Salmon in Wild Rivers and Grizzlies in Yellowstone

Managing Wildlife and Conserving Endangered Species

(p.226) (p.227) 11 Salmon in Wild Rivers and Grizzlies in Yellowstone
The Moon in the Nautilus Shell

Daniel B. Botkin


This chapter focuses on the lessons that can be drawn from the case of salmon in wild rivers and grizzlies in Yellowstone National Park in terms of wildlife management and conservation of endangered species. It considers the reasons for counting wildlife as well as alternatives to restoring populations of endangered or threatened animals to their “once-was” abundance, along with the concept of minimum viable population size. It also looks at the insights provided by whooping cranes and the California condor as well as sea otters, sea urchins, and abalone for conserving and managing natural resources. Finally, it discusses wildlife conservation and management in the twenty-first century and suggests that they still mainly follow the old ways and old ideas about nature.

Keywords:   salmon, wild rivers, grizzlies, Yellowstone National Park, wildlife management, wildlife conservation, endangered species, minimum population, nature, natural resources
