National Wolf Awareness Week (Video)

October 14-20th is National Wolf Awareness Week in the U.S. It was set up as a national event in 1996, a year after wolves were reintroduced to the state of Idaho and Yellowstone National Park. Since that time, Governors from 26 states have proclaimed the third week of October as Wolf Awareness Week.

The purpose of this week is to celebrate the importance and beauty of the wolf in our world today.

The goals set for Wolf Awareness Week are to create an awareness of the role that a predator such as the wolf plays in maintaining a healthy ecosystem and ultimately a healthy planet. Tragically the wolf was all but exterminated from most of its historic range by the early 1900’s. Thanks to the Endangered Species Act, the reintroduction of the wolf in 1995 into parts of the United States has been successful.

There are very important reasons to celebrate wolves in the U.S. They are known as an apex predator that has been proven to keep ecosystems in balance which also has an effect on the climate. They are also a beautiful animal that shares many of the same family values as humans do. Devoted as parents and the whole pack takes part in the raising of the pups. They also mate for life.

Unfortunately for the wolves there are two small special interest groups in the U.S. who have used their political clout to delist the wolves and allow the slaughter of them in yearly wolf hunts. We are now in a crucial time in the process to protect wolves because of this. Currently in Idaho, Montana, Wyoming, Minnesota and Wisconsin the wolves have been delisted from federal protection and are now subject to wolf hunts. Michigan is also considering having a wolf hunt.

It is once again not an easy time for the wolves in the U.S. with hundreds of them being slaughtered by trophy hunters. In addition to celebrating the wolves as we have done in the past, we must now also fight for their existence and right to live along side of humans. After all the wolves were here long before mankind decided to intrude on their land and their lives.
