User: What was the motivating factor behind Theodore Roosevelt's conservationist ideas?





Weegy: There were many influences throughout TR's life that directed him toward conservationist goals. As a child, he was fascinated with wildlife, killing specimens and stuffing them. He was quite a good taxidermist as a child. [ As a teenager, he wrote a guide book to the birds of Long Island, which was among the best books of its kind for its time. Perhaps the most influential period in his life was in his 20's, when he went west to the Dakota Territory to hunt bison while he still had the chance to do so. He fell in love with the place and purchased the Maltese Cross Ranch. He added the Elkhorn Ranch the next year. The story is too long to repeat here, but retold in TR's own words in several wonderful books: Ranch Life and the Hunting Trail, Hunting Trips of a Ranchman, and The Wilderness Hunter. During his time, he found value in the solitude in the wilderness, the adventure of living in such a rugged (and lawless!) place, and witnessed the tragedy of a starvation winter precipitated by overstocking the land in 1886-1887. See the Theodore Roosevelt National Park website for more on this period in his life: ]
