The article offers information on the efforts made by environmentalists to preserve various wildlife species in the U.S. Researchers at the University of Montana have launched the first study of porcupine populations, due to the fact that these species are vanishing. The M-44 and a similar poison called Compound 1080 are the anti-wildlife, and environmentalists have finally persuaded the federal Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to study how they are used to kill thousands of coyotes and other predators each year. Biologists had brought 11 of the slithery mammals from Canada and released them to restore a species that was extirpated in the state for many years.
