Efforts for wolf and cougar recovery in Oregon

The recovery of the gray wolf after its eradication from Yellowstone National Park, almost ninety years ago, demonstrates how crucial keystone species are to the long-term sustainability of the ecosystems they inhabit. But there are many who still regard keystone species, such as cougars and wolves, with hostility.

Habitat? or animal rights? T.C. Boyle on his latest novel: "When the Killing's Done"

program: 
Between the Covers
program date: 
Thu, 09/01/2011

Host Jim Schumock speaks with T.C. Boyle about his thirteenth novel, When the Killing's Done, which takes up some of the environmental themes of earlier novels such as A Friend of the Earth and The Tortilla Curtain, and stories like “Carnal Knowledge,” “Top of the Food Chain,” “Tooth and Claw.” It is set in the past decade on the California Channel Islands, where a rather testy turf war was fought between animal rights activists and the biologists of the National Park Service and the Nature Conservancy over the elimination of non-native species of plants and animals, and this provided the inspiration for the book.

Movie Moles: If a Tree Falls - a story of the Earth Liberation Front

program date: 
Mon, 08/08/2011

Jan and Wendy talk about "If Tree Falls: a story for the Earth Liberation Front". In looking at the history and activities of the Earth Liberation Front strikes this film strikes close to home, since it focuses on an ELF cell based out of Eugene, Oregon. The film provokes questions about the origins of political violence and radical politics as a young person's game, and why its important to distinguish blowing people up and blowing property up. Does the film imbue the activists with more power than they actually have? Ultimately it seems that radical politics can't issue from a single-cell or group.

For the Old Mole Variety Hour , June 6, 2011.     Last week, a 200-pound black bear showed up outside Tualatin Elementary school, and another black bear was found up a tree near Clark College and a high school. This is probably not a sign of the bear market in education. "Wildlife officials say bears may be showing up in inhabited areas because the cold, wet weather has made food scarce in higher elevations.
