Wolf Conservation Center staff, volunteers, and wolves are sharing a collective sigh of relief today.

Wednesday’s big, blustery nor’easter, the second to hit New York’s Westchester County¬†in less than a week, brought well over a foot of wet, heavy snow and significant fence damage to the WCC.

Thankfully, the wolves are okay.

WCC’s endangered species facility, which houses the majority of the Center’s critically endangered Mexican gray wolves and red wolves, bared the brunt of the formidable storm. Although a number of enclosures were damaged, the wolves remained safe and contained.

WCC staff has been working tirelessly to remove debris, address the compromised fence-lines. and make the pathways and roads accessible. However, many repairs remain to be done. If you are able, please consider making a donation to help us in this effort. Every penny helps!

Some good news — since our restricted area was impacted the most, all education programming remains on schedule!

URGENT — Facing another appropriations deadline on March 23, Congress is still working to determine how to fund the government. Unfortunately, damaging anti-wolf riders that undermine Endangered Species Act protections for wolves are still in play.

One provision seeks to permanently remove federal ESA protections for gray wolves in Minnesota, Wisconsin, Michigan, and Wyoming, to allow trophy hunting to resume. To add insult to injury, the bill prohibits its judicial review thus preventing any legal challenge.

If these riders are not removed by Congress, wolves will die at the hands of trophy hunters.
