The Ethiopian wolf is often called the world’s most endangered canid species, with fewer than 500 individuals alive today.Rather, the genetics indicate that native red foxes naturally expanded their range into the southeastern United States.
But the southeastern United States has the diversity of freshwater fish species (and other wildlife) to make a trip comparable to saltwater snorkeling.In the Northwest, there is a fish viewing window at Bonneville Dam. Salmon can be watched, from a distance, spawning in a number of rivers.
No easy trip, sure, but far quicker than most: Over the course of 2019, on average, congestion increased drive times by 71 percent.And that while Angelenos have the right to gripe about America’s worst traffic, the city’s 42 percent congestion level looks peachy compared to the megacities of India and southeast Asia.
