Wolverines in Sierra; AZ's Bald Eagles protected

Wolverine

TUCSON -- Some good western wildlife news this week.

Wolverines, one of my favorite animals and pound-for-pound one of the toughest on the planet, are photographed in the Sierra Nevada Range of California, one of my favorite places.

The Forest Service and Park Service, which manage most of the lands the tough predator depends on in the Sierra, should act to ensure rare and endangered Wolverines and their habitat are fully protected.

Arizona's desert nesting Bald Eagles have re-gained Endangered Species Act protection, which is needed to help them survive and fully recover.

These rare animals, and the people who work so hard to protect them, lift my heart
