Wildlife Migration Concern West Boundary of
Glacier National Park
What seams to be funneling wildlife here ? possibly the natural mountainous pass or geologic landscape of combination of Lakes, Reservoirs, Wolves, Logging, Parks, Suburban Sprawl, Farms, Fields, Cleared Land, and constant increasing population to Northwest Montana.
This “last best place” is also “Best for Wildlife”, it is now unsafe place for sensitive, endangered and indigenous wildlife. We need to stop developing for human recreation, tourism, stop logging this forest canopy passage. Help us start setting aside preserving Habitat and land. Dedicate and establish this vital connectivy route between two Grizzly Bear Core/Recovery Areas. Plan for a future animal bridge over deadly Highway 93 at this busy crossing. We are bringing attention to the people, biologist’s and researchers that this area barricades travel, Libby Dam stretching 70 miles north, then 130 miles south is near impassable through Flathead suburbia to Missoula.
We believe we need to secure private land that connect and the stepping stones for safe wildlife migration. Through this little mountainous pass. We hope to persuade and convince with adjoining Federal, State and private forests owners to join us. Promote area conservation easements of real estate. Advocate the stop and loss of vital canopy habitat near Stillwater River crossing area.
We want to work with State and Federal Forest Service so we will not have to restore this vital forests canopy. The law makers in trying to enhance this area are developing farther away from natural habitat. Don’t the wildlife have right to thrive naturally with some natural habitat left alone and a safe place then a way to connect to it ?
