Enriching the (target) Environment
Cheetahs, lions and even elephants could roam parts of North America in an extraordinary "rewilding" plan outlined today by ecologists and conservationists.
Now that would make life more interesting, but before the more sporting amongst you go down to Bubbas Donut and Ammo Store to stock up please note the first introduction doesn't sound that challenging a target...
A pilot study will test a mild version of the rewilding plan by considering the release of the endangered Bolson tortoise on a private ranch in New Mexico. The tortoise, which can weigh up to 100lb and once thrived in Arizona and Mexico, now survives only in a small area of northern Mexico.
