Children Changing Minds About Wolves
With kids like 8-yr-old Turner Burns, the future looks bright. Turner is featured in October’s Ranger Rick Magazine because he wants to tell readers that wolves are important! When Turner was 6 yrs old, he shared a howl with the Wolf Conservation Center’s ambassador wolves Atka, Alawa, and Zephyr, and his life hasn’t been the same since. After being bitten by the “wolf bug,” Turner became an enthusiastic advocate for wolves, he even started his own Facebook page called “Kids for Wolves” to help his peers understand why wolves are an essential part of the wild landscape.
Connecting with children like Turner reminds WCC staff and volunteers why education remains key. Although most supporters think working among wolves is what makes our work special, it actually making a difference for children like Turner that has the bigger impact.
Turner knows that wolves nationwide urgently need our help and people of all ages can #StandForWolves. USFWS is accepting comments re: the proposals until October 28th.
- Voice your opposition to the Nationwide Delisting proposal here.
- Tell USFWS that Mexican Wolves are essential here.
