ABSTRACT
The article discusses why science alone will not settle the West's endangered species problems. Rob Roy Ramey II shares his life as a conservation biologist who volunteered to look on a hatchling for the Colorado Division of Wildlife. He has many things to attend to like the importance of getting out into the wild, facing his critics, and the problems he sees with the Endangered Species Act. Conservation decisions are based on hypothetical threats and assumptions rather than on hard facts. Just recently, Ramey is set to study the Preble's meadow jumping mouse of the Colorado Front Range.
