National Wolf Awareness Week Begins Today
National Wolf Awareness Week has begun! Wolves have long been shrouded in myth and superstition, so this week provides an opportunity to open the door to understanding the importance and plight of the keystone species. It’s a time to recognize wolves as an ESSENTIAL part of our natural landscapes and to engage others to become interested and active in wolf survival.
Originally created by the Timber Wolf Alliance to recognize the role wolves play in the environment of Wisconsin, the movement has expanded to promote the ecological importance of wolves across their entire natural range. The event is celebrated the third full week of October and serves to highlight wolves!
We invite you to join the #bewolfaware movement – a collaborative effort online to provide an alternative narrative to the common myths, fairy tales, and misconceptions surrounding wolves. We’ll also offer fun giveaways and lots of surprises too!
