Wolf Management Stamps

2014-07-25

Photo and following excerpt from Living with Wolves. Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks (FWP) has proposed a new “Wolf Management Stamp.” The original intent of the stamp is to offer a way for people to contribute financially to the conservation and protection of Montana’s wolves. Currently wolf management and conservation is funded almost exclusively by the sale of hunting, trapping, and fishing licenses, which means hunters and anglers are shaping wildlife management philosophy. Should the “Wolf Stamp” become

Balance

2014-03-27

Wolves as a keystone species play a critical role in restoring balance to ecosystems. Spiritually they represent guardianship, ritual, loyalty and spirit. Unfortunately they are the most misunderstood of the wild animals. They are highly intelligent, sentient beings who care deeply for their family and live by carefully defined rules and rituals. Many believe that the true test of America’s sincerity about protecting the environment remains around whether or not the wolf remains protected. Right now is a

Trophic Cascade

2014-02-20

  I’ve read all about the studies done in Yellowstone National Park showing the healing of the land from the reintroduction of wolves, a keystone predator. It’s fascinating and this is a great video that shows the transformation. Isn’t nature amazing?!

Wolves and their Babes

2013-09-25

After having a child of my own, it melts my heart even more to see wolves and other wild animals with their young. Wolves especially care deeply for their family. Sadly, hunting season is back with a vengeance in Idaho and Montana and soon in Wyoming, Michigan, Wisconsin and Minnesota. Quotas are higher, the season is longer and the fees are much less this year. This is all happening amidst a contentious national conversation about whether gray wolves everywhere should

I love wolves

2013-05-08

The more I learn, the more I fall in love. If I’m feeling low, I can browse photos of this amazing creature along with other wild animals and I feel inspired and calm. Seeing their pure affection and dedication to family, their wild spirit and stunning beauty awakens my soul. I am lucky enough to live in a place where wolves, mountain lions and bears also live and because of their presence, I feel a strong spiritual connection to this

Yellowstone Wolves

2013-01-17

I recently wrote about the Yellowstone wolves that were killed by hunters just outside the park’s boundaries. The MT Fish Wildlife & Parks Dept. did a great thing and closed two areas just north of the park to hunting and trapping. Unfortunately, there was a restraining order placed on that decision that forced them to re-open the area. The FWP is now accepting public comments on this issue until Jan. 25th. If you want, you can add your comment and let

Yellowstone Wolves

2012-12-22

The most popular wolf in Yellowstone National Park was killed by a hunter this month along with other collared wolves that have been part of a decade long study. Since wolves were taken off the Endangered Species List in WY a couple months ago, there have been aggressive wolf hunts just outside the park resulting in as least 7 deaths. You can listen to the full story here. The thing about wolves is that scientists and wildlife enthusiasts who frequently
