"Naturalists were the original biologists, and hunters and trappers were the original naturalists. No one knew more about a species -- the wheres, whens, and whys of its movements through the land and the seasons, its relationships with prey and rivals and mates -- than a person whose livelihood depended on that knowledge."
--Mary Roach, in Fuzz: When Nature Breaks the Law, 2021

A book about wildlife policy -- interesting and entertaining

Also an excellent read: Wild New World by Dan Flores.
It is a history of human caused extinctions in North America. Heartbreaking and fascinating.

“If you find yourself applying the word impressive to any type of animal vomit, you may be a naturalist.” From Fuzz, which I wouldn’t have read without Ellen’s post here. Thanks, a really interesting book.
