Wolf Awareness Week

Wolf Haven

October 12-18, 2014

Every year conservation groups from around the U.S. celebrate wolf recovery efforts during the month of October. Wolf Awareness week became a national event in 1996.

The goals set for Wolf Awareness Week are to create a consciousness of the role that a predator such as the wolf plays in maintaining a healthy planet. The wolf was all but exterminated from most of its historic range by the early 1900’s. Thanks to the Endangered Species Act and conservation groups like Wolf Haven International, reintroduction of the Wolf into parts of the United States has been successful. This is a crucial time in the process to protect wolves as several states are petitioning to remove the wolf from its protected status.

Each year, the Timber Wolf Alliance has a poster art contest to select the vision for the annual Wolf Awareness Week poster. Wolf Haven International is a proud sponsor of the beautiful and informative poster, which we display in local libraries and distribute to education groups.
