Denning season has arrived. And as I think about this year’s wolf pups, I wonder what kind of world they—and their coyote cousins—will grow up in.

I’ve heard from many readers of my book, In the Temple of Wolves, and some say that it paint...ed for them a fuller picture of where and how the wolf fits into the ecosystem, and why the predator’s presence is essential. Others say that the book inspired them to be more active in advocating for the protection of wolves or coyotes.

Certainly, the process of researching and writing the book moved me from being a fascinated observer to becoming a budding advocate for these animals.

I want my efforts to help foster advocacy in others. So I’m putting my money where my heart and hopes are: a percentage of the profits from the sale on Amazon of my book now goes toward promoting posts about wolves and coyotes.

In the last few weeks I have paid to promote on my In the Temple of Wolves Facebook page four well-written and educational pieces. The first was an Op-Ed by Garrick Dutcher about the plight of wolves in Idaho. The second was a think piece by The Wildlife Advocate’s Dave Hornoff about the delisting of wolves. The third was an article by Jane Goodall on the plight of wolves in Alaska and Yellowstone. The fourth was by Marybeth Holleman on the impact of hunting on the delicate social structure of wolves.

These paid promotions helped the articles reach more than 9,000 more readers. I hope that some of those folks will be moved to action.

When Minnesota had a stable number of wolves for 10+ yrs (1998-2008), we had healthy moose. The MN moose decline is tragic and still a mystery. But blaming wolves is bad for wolves and moose, who have coexisted in our Northwoods for thousands of years.

New blog posting by HFW founder Maureen Hackett responds to claims that the wolf hunt is to "control the population", and makes clear the real reason is simply recreation.

URGENT! DNR is accepting public comment through June 20 online. Critical to submit your comments, and get as many people as possible to do so. These comments will become part of the public record, which can be referenced should any future action or lawsuit develop, i.e. 30,000 people submitted comments opposing the hunting/trapping of wolves. Public comments are different from the letters to Gov Dayton and the legislature -you need to do this too!

Click on the "Survey". You'll view a brief powerpoint overview, then be presented with questions, and an open comment box at the end. Do it now!
