Wolf Awareness Week
Few species are as historically vilified, as ecologically valued, and as continually controversial as wolves. Despite the vital role they play in many of our native ecosystems, wolves were nearly eliminated in the U.S. by relentless hunting and predator control programs determined to wipe them out. Today, though wolves have returned to some parts of the American landscape, intolerance, fear, misinformation and loss of federal protections continue to threaten wolves’ recovery and survival.
Happy Wolf Awareness Week, everybody!
