Who's Afraid of the Wolf...Virginia? or Guess Who's Coming To Dinner
An integrated Interdisciplinary Thematic Study of Predators of the Intermountain Region An integrated Interdisciplinary Thematic Study of Predators of the Intermountain Region. Why is this unit important? Predators of the intermountain area once flew above and roamed vast areas of open space along the grasslands, prairies, rivers and mountains of Colorado, Wyoming, Utah, Montana and New Mexico, in search of prey. Occupying their own unique niche, each contributed to the balance of nature in their ecosystem. Where predators once battled for survival against the forces of nature, they now face an even more ominous foe - MAN. Due to rapid growth of the human population, the amount of open space available to predators, and their prey, continues to dwindle as residential and commercial development encroaches on their territory.
