Today I want to share an adventure I’m taking with my family to an organization that I absolutely adore. Wildlife diversity and wolves in particular have a big place in my heart.
From the time I was a little girl, I wanted to study wolves and contribute to wildlife conservation.
As I grew up I realized that working with animals in person probably wasn’t going to be viable because I am allergic to almost everything in nature – but being able to support conservation and education in this way is magical.
We’re going on an overnight sleepover where we get to cap off a night of movies, presentations, and observing wolves by camping out in tents just meters from the enclosures. You fall asleep to wolf howls and owl hoots, then wake up to howling, too. It’s incredible!
Getting to know animals, especially wild animals, as individuals makes it so much easier for us to want to protect them and make space for them in the world.
The mission of the Wolf Conservation Center of NY is one of preservation and reintroduction. And they haven’t missed that people need to make connections with animals and feel their importance personally in order to support the cause.
I highly recommend supporting any organization that speaks to your heart. And if you also love wolves and believe that predators have a place in our country and in the web of life, check out the WCC and maybe symbolically adopt a wolf.
You can visit them at nywolf.org
I would love to see wolves reclaim their place in wild spaces all over the country in my lifetime. And together, we can make that more possible.Support the show
