Wolves: A Vital Role in Nature – Still Threatened *Cancelled*
Speaker: Carrie Bridgman, VLM Animal Care Staff
*Unfortunately, our guest speaker is unavailable and we will have to reschedule for a later date.
For so many people, wolves in the wild represent the Wild itself – reflecting both the will and the skills to survive, the dynamic connections between living things in the environment, and the freedom from a reliance on humans. Historically, these fascinating and highly intelligent predators thrived on their own as a vital part of a balanced natural world.
Today, both because of and in spite of human intervention, some species and populations of wild wolves are recovering – and overall, their contributions to a healthy natural balance are recognized. However, the story of the Red Wolf recovery program in the Eastern US is one of increased challenges, and a decrease of both state and federal support. Please join us for an informative overview of wolf species throughout the world, with a special focus on the current status of the Red Wolf recovery program, under which the VLM’s own Red Wolves are included.
