Wolves still are in a struggle to survive.
Throughout the years, these charities have made excellent strides and, as a result of their tireless efforts, wolf recovery is doing well. Wolves are now living in places where they were once extinct, such as Arizona, Oregon, Washington, New Mexico, and California.
American Wolf Foundation
The American Wolf Foundation was established in 2018 under the laws of the State of Missouri as a 501(c)(3) charitable organization. They are new and need help! They are growing an endowment to give lasting support to American red wolf and other canid conservation nationwide. A great endowment fund is never tapped. Instead, the principal is invested smartly, and the beneficiaries are paid only interest. Endangered species recovery is a long process, and they are the only endowment fund just for wolves.
Vision & Mission
Their vision is to see all American wolf species living in the wild and coexisting with humans. Their mission is to unite key stakeholders to guarantee conflict-free conservation. They have three primary objectives: Conservation. Awareness. Coexistence.
They encourage awareness of the benefits of wolves to humans and the environment, and of the tools available for coexisting with them. Wolves were at some point in time so reviled as to be skinned alive, yet accounts of American wolf attacks on humans are infrequent.
Reconciling fiction with reality has been difficult. We want to reveal the wolf with awareness and education campaigns for legislatures and regulatory offices, for ranchers, hunters, and other landowners affected by reintroduced wolves, and particularly for the kids who will make decisions about these species in times to come.
The ultimate goal of any conservation effort is coexistence. Public awareness aids with that. But, so does funding. They will fund coexistence initiatives for hunters, ranchers, and landowners dealing with reintroduced wolves. Being proactive, not reactive, to have coexistence coalitions before conflict arises is what wolves in the wild require most.
International Wolf Center
The International Wolf Center encourages the survival of wolf populations by educating about wolves, their relationship to wildlands and the human role in their future.
Wolf educators are faced with dealing with complex issues: population control in Alaska and Canada, the reintroduction of the species into Yellowstone, bounties, livestock depredation, and the tragedy of a pet wolf-dog hybrid’s attack on a child.
