The study of wolf survival is a study of human tolerance. Wolves are keystone predators in habitats that increasingly include humans. It’s hard for people to tolerate and respect what they are raised to fear. At the International Wolf Center in Ely, Minnesota, we work to advance the survival of wolf populations by educating people to see wolves as vital parts of the ecosystem.
I am the coordinator of education and outreach programs at the International Wolf Center in Ely, Minnesota. We are a not-for-profit education and research organization committed to advancing the survival of wolf populations. My background is in wildlife science with a focus on gray wolf populations in North America.
Understanding wildlife is the first step to respecting it. Wildlife needs room to be wild.
