The grandest of lives : eye to eye with whales by Douglas H Chadwick( Book )

8 editions published between 2006 and 2008 in English and held by 734 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The largest creatures to inhabit the Earth, whales have long inspired awe in human beings. Because they spend almost 95 percent of their time beneath the ocean surface, however, little has been known about their lives--until recently. With advances in technology and more intense study, fresh facts are coming to light about these magnificent mammals, and to be a whale watcher now, says author and wildlife biologist Douglas Chadwick, is to have a front-row seat to stunning discoveries. Chadwick has followed and reported on whales for more than a decade, and here he offers an insider's view of modern-day scientific whale observation--from data gathering to spirited scientific debate to expedition storytelling. Provides detailed portraits of five whale species that represent a cross-section of the forms and lifestyles of cetaceans worldwide.--From publisher description

True grizz : glimpses of Fernie, Stahr, Easy, Dakota, and other real bears in the modern world by Douglas H Chadwick( Book )

3 editions published between 2003 and 2006 in English and held by 369 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

On the outskirts of a Montana town, a female grizzly and her cubs catch the scent of a bag of dog food left out on a porch. It has been a poor autumn for berries in the backcountry, and the temptation to snatch an easy meal from human territory is strong. If the bears succeed often enough, they will be more likely to go into their winter den with the fat reserves needed for survival. But with each such raid, the bears' chances of getting caught or killed increase dramatically. In True Grizz, author Douglas Chadwick joins a crew of dedicated wildlife managers working to educate grizzlies about where they should and shouldn't go in the populated areas of northwestern Montana. With "schooling" methods that range from shooting the bears with rubber bullets to charging at them with teams of specially trained Karelian dogs, these people are doing everything they can to save a threatened species. This challenge grows increasingly difficult as human development encroaches upon the bears' habitat, leaving grizz little choice but to share landscapes with us. Breaking with the tradition of tales that depict bears as either ferocious monsters or icons of pure wilderness, Chadwick gives us a refreshingly clear-eyed view of individual grizzlies and their complex personalities. As he chronicles the lives of Fernie, Stahr, Easy, Dakota, and other "problem" bears--and shares his personal insights about free-roaming grizzlies gained through close observation for more than three decades--Chadwick offers a realistic yet poignant picture of grizz as big, strong, bright, adaptable omnivores trying to get by in the modern world any way they can
The wolverine way by Douglas H Chadwick( Book )

7 editions published between 2010 and 2013 in English and held by 328 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Overview: Glutton, demon of destruction, symbol of slaughter, mightiest of wilderness villains. The wolverine comes marked with a reputation based on myth and fancy. Yet this enigmatic animal is more complex than the legends that surround it. With a shrinking wilderness and global warming, the future of the wolverine is uncertain. The Wolverine Way reveals the natural history of this species and the forces that threaten its future, engagingly told by Douglas Chadwick, who volunteered with the Glacier Wolverine Project. This five-year study in Glacier National Park - which involved dealing with blizzards, grizzlies, sheer mountain walls, and other daily challenges to survival - uncovered key missing information about the wolverine's habitat, social structure and reproduction habits. Wolverines, according to Chadwick, are the land equivalent of polar bears in regard to the impacts of global warming. The plight of wolverines adds to the call for wildlife corridors that connect existing habitat that is proposed by the Freedom to Roam coalition

Salmon in the trees : life in Alaska's Tongass rain forest by Amy Gulick( Recording )

1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 101 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Salmon in the Trees tells the story of the Tongass, a 17-million acre temperate rainforest spread along the coast and across thousands of islands in the panhandle of Alaska. With some of the highest densities of grizzly bears, black bears, and bald eagles in the world, the Tongass National Forest is a place that time hasn't quite caught up to yet. Can the great forest's biological treasures withstand the modern pressures of a globalized world? For the past two years, wildlife photographer Amy Gulick has documented the grizzlies, wolves, eagles, humpback whales, and wild salmon of the Tongass. Combined with essays from renowned conservationists, scientists, and writers Richard Nelson, Brad Matsen, Dr. Carl Safina, Ray Troll, Rosita Worl, Richard Carstensen, John Schoen, Douglas Chadwick, and John Straley, Gulick's images tell a hopeful story of a rare ecosystem that still contains all of its original components and where the local people continue to sustainably manage its resources
Crown of the Continent : the wildest Rockies by Steven Gnam( Book )

Far from the beaten path for many Americans, our northern Rocky Mountains feature two popular national parks, fertile ranch land, and some of the most unspoiled and intact landscapes in North America. This so-called Crown of the Continent is also the largest wildlife corridor in the Lower 48 and remains undivided by highways and cities. Photographer Steven Gnam's sumptous and striking photos reveal the region in all its moods, bringing the rugged and lush landscapes, the big megafauna and small critters, the popular recreation and personal lives up close in vivid detail. His images will inspire pride in Crown residents and encourage visitors to dig deeper to create greater public awareness for this American treasure
National Geographic, the photo ark : one man's quest to document the world's animals by Joel Sartore( Book )

1 edition published in 2017 in English and held by 64 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This lush book of photography represents National Geographic's Photo Ark, a major cross-platform initiative and lifelong project by photographer Joel Sartore to make portraits of the world's animals?especially those that are endangered. His powerful message, conveyed with humor, compassion, and art: to know these animals is to save them. Sartore intends to photograph every animal in captivity in the world. He is circling the globe, visiting zoos and wildlife rescue centers to create studio portraits of 12,000 species, with an emphasis on those facing extinction. He has photographed more than 6,000 already and now, thanks to a multi-year partnership with National Geographic, he may reach his goal. This book showcases his animal portraits: from tiny to mammoth, from the Florida grasshopper sparrow to the greater one-horned rhinoceros. Paired with the eloquent prose of veteran wildlife writer Douglas Chadwick, this book presents a thought-provoking argument for saving all the species of our planet. --Publisher
