What did Olaus Murie do for the environment?



  1. 0 Votes

    Early in his career, Murie learned new information about the northeast and northwest corners of North America through scientific expeditions, including a major study of the caribou. Continuing studies of caribou and elk led him to successfully push for more land in National Parks, basing park boundaries on natural ecosystems rather than artificial man-made lines. He became director of the Wilderness society and continued to push for more, larger national parks, as well as preventing construction from occurring in existing ones. His efforts have inspired a generation to demand that large tracts of land be completely and permanently preserved.
