WOLF AWARENESS WEEK – October 14th-20th

When I began researching my ‘Scottish wolf clan’ stories earlier this year, I wanted to sincerely learn more about these four-legged creatures. My heart was drawn to organizations that are specifically designed to educate the public and attempt to rescue wolves and other endangered wildlife.

Defenders of Wildlife continues the fight to promote common sense wolf management, working with federal and state officials and private land-owners to ensure that science, not politics, guides decision-making about the future of these American icons.

I was surprised to learn that America's wolves were nearly eradicated in the 20th century. Now, after a remarkable recovery in parts of the country, wolves are once more threatened.

Here are some examples:

In the Northern Rockies the federal government has put forth a proposal that could lead to the slaughter of hundreds of wolves in Idaho and Wyoming. Even Yellowstone wolves could be shot on site if they wander outside the park's boundaries!

In Alaska state officials continue to allow airborne gunners to kill hundreds of wolves! Easy targets against the snow, hundreds of wolves have been shot from above or chased to exhaustion and then killed by aerial gunners who land and execute them at point-blank range!

And, in the Southwest, misinformation and anti-wolf sentiment runs high, with wolf recovery in Arizona and New Mexico limited to a defined area. If the wolves set up territories elsewhere, they are captured and returned.

By clicking on the Take Action icon at the website, you can begin to help the wolf and other wildlife by sending emails to your Representative with just the click of a button –how easy is that???

And don’t forget the Support Us, Adopt Now or the E-News Signup icons either!

Thx & Hugs,
