People’s and our earth’s well-being are both essential. The human presence is fleeting compared to our earth’s history, which stretches back about 4.54 billion years, give or take 50 million years.
People often prefer peace and harmony and agree on the problem, although they may have competing solutions. Wildlife corridors appear to be receding, and awareness of your surroundings is critical. You might encounter wolves, bears, cougars, coyotes, and elk in the most unlikely places.
If you see this wildlife in national parks, consider reporting this sighting to Parks Canada and phone 1-403-762-1470. It is important not to approach wildlife or entice them with tidbits to lessen, for example, wildlife/human conflict.
Development in such places as the Rocky Mountains and the foothills has contributed to unexpected encounters with wildlife. It can be challenging to survive and thrive with increasing world tensions and hostilities. In singer-songwriter John Lennon’s (1971) ageless words:
“You may say I’m a dreamer.
But I’m not the only one.
I hope someday you’ll join us.
And the world will live as one”.
