Endangered Plant Garden Named in Honor of Ambassador Wolf Atka
January 26, 2019 | Uncategorized
The Wolf Conservation Center, in partnership with Sacred Warrior, is proud to announce the creation of an endangered species and medicinal plant garden at the WCC. The garden, named “Atka’s Garden: Sacred Warrior & Wolf Conservation Center Sanctuary,” has been granted botanical sanctuary status by United Plant Savers.
Many wild plant species face the same misunderstandings and threats as wolves; some are becoming endangered due to habitat destruction, imported diseases or pests, and over-harvesting. Reintroducing endangered and at-risk plant species through the garden and wild lands of the WCC aligns with the WCC’s mission of ecological awareness and environmental stewardship.
