When Russell Galipeau was a college student, he had his first meet-the-public job: At a tourist attraction in steamy south Florida, he was a sweat-stained blacksmith's apprentice, decked out in heavy 17th century garb as he squeezed a bellows over burning coals and tended a red-hot forge. That was a couple of decades and who-knows-how-many resource management plans ago.

Tucked up against the towering granite walls of Yosemite Valley is a scruffy collection of tents and picnic tables known as Camp 4. It might not look like much, but to big wall rock climbers from around the globe, Camp 4 is the mecca, the place where it all started. This innocuous little spot was the launch pad for a revolution that propelled America, and the collection of free spirits drawn to Yosemite's sheer cliffs beginning in the 1950s, to the forefront of international climbing.

For the first time in years, newborn offspring of endangered Channel Island foxes are roaming Santa Rosa Island. "Having successful reproduction in the wild is a critical step in saving the island fox," said Russell Galipeau, superintendent of Channel Islands National Park. He called the April birth of two pups "an exciting milestone."

For the family that once owned Santa Rosa Island, it was part Zane Grey, part "Robinson Crusoe. " Generations of Vail cousins would arrive from the mainland and take refuge for months at a time. They would explore places with pirate-map names: Skull Gulch, Abalone Rocks, China Camp. They were city kids, but they rode with the island's cowboys and knew the island lore — stories about ghosts, about shipwrecks, about a mythical temptress named Rita who supposedly awaited new cowboys.

The gray wolf is making a comeback in parts of Montana, Idaho and Washington and is poised for possible reintroduction at Yellowstone National Park. But in Alaska, a debate over "wolf control" is heating up again. In most states, the wolf is classified as endangered; in Minnesota it is threatened. In Alaska--the only state that allows sport hunting of wolves--a healthy population estimated at about 7,000 roams across thousands of square miles. Wolf hunting is a way of life for many.

Animal rights advocates are asking a Los Angeles federal judge to stop a massive feral pig hunt underway at Channel Islands National Park off the Ventura County coast. The lawsuit claims that piglets on Santa Cruz Island are chased by dogs and "mangled" after the mother has been killed. Pigs that have escaped gunfire from helicopters are subdued by their hind legs by hunters and sliced open or beaten to death, the suit also alleges.

The chairman of the House Armed Services Committee is reviving a controversial proposal to allow members of the military to hunt deer and elk on a national park island off the Ventura County coast. Opponents fear that the plan could limit public access to Channel Islands National Park and threaten native species. Rep. Duncan Hunter (R-El Cajon) had backed off his plan to allow military hunting on 53,000-acre Santa Rosa Island after objections from senators last year.

When biologists gaze upon the rare Santa Cruz Island fox, they see a delicate species found nowhere else in the world. But when golden eagles perched high in the island's crags look down upon the housecat-size animal, they see lunch. That is why officials at Channel Islands National Park are summoning a group of eagle experts to the island late this month.

For Jimmy Arroyave, the timing was critical. Crazy about the national park system, he wanted his young daughter Vanessa to sign on as the first junior ranger at Channel Islands National Park, and the sooner the better. So in a packed auditorium Wednesday, she raised her right hand and took the junior ranger oath in her clear, achingly earnest, 7-year-old voice, pledging to "help protect these islands, their plants, their animals, and their cultural heritage...."
