- Issue: Summer 2016
In this issue, World Wildlife brings you another close look at nature, wildlife, and people—but this time the lens is on, figuratively and literally, our own backyards.
Our main feature looks closely at life on the Fort Peck Indian Reservation in Montana, where a dedicated group of community leaders is trying to bring back bison—not only for the sustenance and livelihoods they provide, but also for the culture that is inextricably tied to them.
We peek into photographer (and WWF staffer) Clay Bolt’s “Meet Your Neighbours” project, which spotlights animals that live right around us, in backyards in the US and elsewhere. And we invite you to explore one of more than 400 US National Parks as the Park Service celebrates its centennial year.
But WWF is a global family, so we explore the world’s backyards as well: among Namibia’s farmers; in China’s responsibly managed forests; and in southern Belize, where local communities have banded together to protect the reefs, mangroves, and fisheries where they live.
So please, enjoy this issue’s stories, from wherever you call home.
