‘Intro to North American Wolves’ Webinar with the Wolf Conservation Center
While wolves in the United States once numbered in the millions, conflicts with humans and federal extermination programs over the past 200 years brought the species to the brink of extinction. Fortunately, those numbers have finally begun to recover, thanks in part to organizations like one just 1.5 hours north of NYC, which has been helping wolves, and educating the public on this misunderstood animal, for nearly 20 years.
Join New York Adventure Club for a virtual introduction to wolves with the Wolf Conservation Center, an environmental education organization working to protect and preserve red wolves and Mexican gray wolves in North America, two critically endangered wolf species.
Led by a staff member of the Wolf Conservation Center, our virtual experience will include:
- The history of the Wolf Conservation Center, from its founding by Hélène Grimaud in 1999 to current management of over 45 wolves qualified for wild-release
- An overview of wolves, from the history, ecology, and biology of wolves, to the current challenges facing wolf recovery across the United States
- A live stream of the Endangered Species Facility to see and learn about the red wolves, Mexican gray wolves, and “ambassador wolves” at the Wolf Conservation Center
See you there, virtually! $10.
