This week is National Wolf Awareness Week. Every third week of October marks this celebration, and organizations around the country dedicate the week to informing people about wolves and their importance within the ecosystem and our planet.
Ever since I was a little girl I was enthralled with the wolf. Jack London novels - White Fang and Call of the Wild - were my favorite books for years. Our family pet was a beautiful brown-eyed Siberian Husky - Thor - who to me, was our own little wolf.
The howl of the wolf defines the Northern Rockies as a truly wild place. The wolf is a living symbol of wildness and wilderness. - Earthjustice
What has been happening to the wolf over the last several decades is heartbreaking. If we aren't careful, these beautiful creatures could be wiped out. Unfortunately, myth rather than fact has been driving much of people's perceptions of the wolf, and so, the most important thing we can do is educate ourselves. Here is a great resource that separates fact from fiction when it comes to wolves.
This week, I'm donating 50% of the proceeds of my sales of my wolf prints to wolf conservation. I hope you'll join me in the fight to save this amazing creature, and purchase one of my prints today. Please be sure to share this post with others who care about wildlife and conservation.
Thanks so much, as always for reading and your support!
