The Wolf Conservation Center is an environmental education organization working to protect and preserve wolves in North America through science-based education, advocacy, and participation in the federal recovery and release programs for two critically endangered wolf species - the Mexican gray wolf and red wolf.
The removal of federal Endangered Species Act protections for gray wolves across the lower 48 states ushered in a deadly year for wolves, but litigation efforts and broad public support for wolves are beacons of hope.
The future of wolves relies on the foundations that we build today. Through education, we teach the public about the essential ecosystem services that wolves provide and why we must each do our part to protect them. We focus our attention and efforts on schoolchildren and families to ensure that the next generation of conservationists will be even stronger, more compassionate, and more determined than those who fought before them. Together, we must rewrite the brutal history of wolves in North America by putting coexistence at the forefront of the conversation.
There is a lot at stake for wolves, but we will keep fighting together to bring about change. Because wolves are essential, and so are you.
