America is the land that has seen waves of extinctions since man's arrival on the continent during the last great ice age. Mammoths, giant bears, giant ground sloths, lions, cheetahs and saber-toothed cats, passenger pigeons, great auks and countless other charismatic species. What remains today is a small fraction of the grandeur that America was. And yet, those that remain are among the most photographed wild species on Earth. Brown bears, wolves and eagles may lead the way but thousands of animals still call the continent as home. The grand landscapes are unmatched on Earth and provide magnificent settings for photography and wildlife.
