Canine Efficiency

Canine Efficiency is an initiative of Ray Dorgelo. Canine Efficiency, specifically emphasizes effective, non lethal conflict prevention between predators and humans through the correct use of good livestock guard dogs (LGDs). a site that invites research, commentary, point/counterpoint on the suite of native animals(predator and prey) that inhabited The Americas circa 1500-at the initial point of European exploration and subsequent colonization. Landscape ecology, journal accounts of explorers and frontiersmen, genetic evaluations of museum animals, peer reviewed 20th and 21st century research on various aspects of our "Wild America" as well as subjective commentary from expert and layman alike. All of the above being revealed and discussed with the underlying goal of one day seeing our Continent rewilded.....Where big enough swaths of open space exist with connective corridors to other large forest, meadow, mountain, valley, prairie, desert and chaparrel wildlands.....Thereby enabling all of our historic fauna, including man, to live in a sustainable and healthy environment.  Join Rick Merril  on this informative and in-depth blog about current issues our wildlife face today.

Jimmy Jones Photography

Most of my work is wildlife. Although I do other genres. My preference is North American predators. The favorite being gray wolves. My love for wolves goes back to when I was a boy, I have always found them facinating. Having shot at various locations, I have found the choice location for wolves, grizzlies, and other large animals is Yellowstone.

The highly successful reintroduction of western gray wolves to native habitats in Central Idaho (CID) and Yellowstone National Park (YNP) is testimony to how well a scientifically-based and carefully executed plan can succeed. The plan unfolded in large, high quality ecosystems that allowed wolves to flourish in the Northern Rocky Mountains, which began with 66 founding wolves with the initial reintroduction, and now estimated to be approximately 1,700. The challenge moving forward is the creation of wolf management plans that are viable, both biologically and politically. A critical issue all plans must address is the overall genetic health of the entire population. In fact, the recovery plan for delisting the wolf of the Northern Rockies required that populations be connected by genetically effective migration so that genes important to adaptation could be preserved and inbreeding minimized.
