We don’t need to tell you. Wolves are a vital part of healthy ecosystems. As top predators, they help to keep prey populations in check, which can prevent overgrazing and the spread of disease.

In addition, their presence can discourage the growth of invasive species. Wolves also play an important role in the carbon cycle. When they kill and eat prey, they help to release stored carbon back into the atmosphere. This is essential for maintaining a balance in the climate.

Unfortunately, wolves are an endangered species. The Endangered Species Act was passed in 1973 to protect them, but this has not been enough to secure their future. It is estimated that there are only around 5,500 wolves left in the wild.

This is why it is so important to support conservation efforts and raise awareness about the importance of these magnificent creatures.

Central to our mission is teaching about wolves and bridging the gap between their ecological importance and the public’s indifference.

But this is a partnership and we are unable to accomplish this without you.

It’s Friday. The bills are due for all of us. We know that these past few years have been difficult for many. So, if you are able, please help WERC take advantage of our August 2X match that doubles your donation.

As I’ve said many times, wolves are depending on us as their vigilant advocates.
