U.S. Wolf Refuge Updates Its Wolf/Wildlife Education Program
It has long been said that we fear the most those things we don't understand. This is never more evident than in how many people feel about wolves. Wolves are among the most studied animals in wildlife, and there are probably more books written about wolves than any other species of wildlife. Even so, it is amazing how little most people know about them. There has never been an animal that has caused as emotional, political, and social controversy as the wolf.
In our 33 year history, the United States Wolf Refuge has made it a priority to conduct as many educational programs as possible in an effort to dispel many of the misunderstandings and misconceptions surrounding wolves. This has been only a part of the U.S. Wolf Refuge's many functions. Along with the labor intensive activity of rescuing, caring for, and re-homing the multitude of homeless and unwanted wolves and wolf-dogs, and our dedicated support and assistance of the Mexican wolf reintroduction program, we are now focusing on conducting as many educational programs as possible.
These programs are very enlightening, educational and entertaining. All the information given is verified as being accurate, and it is balanced and objective. These programs present information on all aspects of wolves, and strives to respect the myriad of opposing views that are based on fable, embellishment and fabrication.
These programs are presented at schools, colleges, universities, wildlife conservation groups, libraries, community service organizations, veterinarian offices, humane societies, animal welfare groups, animal control agencies, and any other public groups where our message can be heard. It is our belief that these programs have a far greater positive impact on many more of these animals than even the biggest rescue operation.
We have some simply wonderful ambassador wolves that we bring with us to these presentations. This enables many to "get up close and personal" with one of these magnificent creatures, and this often changes many opinions about them. This necessitates us driving to these presentations. We are willing and anxious conduct them all over the United States. We do not want to charge for these presentations, but we would like to be reimbursed for whatever expenses we incur in bringing these presentations. Since we are a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, contribution are highly encouraged.
