Eleanor

Meet Eleanor! She loves all animals, especially wolves, goats, and coyotes, and she likes to write. One way Eleanor helps wolves is by entering the Mexican wolf pup naming contest each year. In 2017, her name was picked as one of the winners. She suggested the name "Sentinela" because Mexican gray wolves are known as the "sentries of the Southwest." 

Turner

Meet Turner! Turner has been working to save wolves since he was six years old. After Turner visited the WCC and met Atka, he realized he wanted to teach other kids about the importance of protecting wolves. Turner started a Facebook page entitled Kids for Wolves and began posting important pieces of wolf information. After years of hard work, Turner was invited to meet with Senator Casey of Pennsylvania! 

Haley

Meet Haley! She thinks wolves are beautiful animals and without wolves, the livestock or prey will grow too large. Haley has adopted 2 WCC wolves so far; Trumpet and Zephyr. Haley taught people about wolves by dressing up for Career Day as a WCC worker and passing out WCC Valentines.

Lukas

Meet Lukas! Lukas, unlike many kids his age, already knows exactly what he wants to be when he grows up: an environmental scientist. When tasked with picking a topic for his local science fair, Lukas decided to study how a border wall between the United States and Mexico would affect wildlife. He's worried that a wall would disrupt the migratory movements of two of his favorite animals: the jaguar and the Mexican gray wolf.

Rhiannon

Meet Rhiannon! Rhiannon is constantly working to save wolves and learn more about them. She makes and sells bracelets to raise money for the WCC, teaches her classmates about wolves, writes letters to elected officials to ask for wolf protections, and even won a contest to name a Mexican wolf pup! She also watches the WCC's scientific webinars to learn more about the wild world.

Zaisha

Meet Zaisha Kohli who lives in New Delhi, India! She is a wildlife and nature enthusiast, and has had a special love and passion for wolves since she was 7-years-old. To spread awareness about wolves, she hosted a webinar "The World of Wolves" for a nature club, Cuckoo About Nature (CAN). Her mission is to ensure wolves are not misunderstood. She represented her school at the WWF-India Wild Wisdom Quiz at the City level in 2018, and wants to open an animal rescue center when she grows up.
