From the Founders
Wolves have always stirred the human imagination. For many people they hold a special place, capturing hearts and minds as inspiring symbols of all things wild. For others, wolves are creatures of nightmare – their mere existence triggering irrational fear and hatred. At the core of the wolf issue is anti-wolf sentiment based on old myths and fears.
As we see wolves, once again, being shot, trapped and poisoned, we recognize that our unique experience, living with wolves, is unlikely to ever happen again. For that reason, we feel that we have an obligation to share the lives of The Sawtooth Pack and their wild cousins with the widest audience possible, to save wolves and the wild land they need for future generations.
The knowledge we gained about wolves desperately needs to be shared in order to bring about change. The success of the Yellowstone wolf packs, and their role in rehabilitating that entire ecosystem has opened minds, creating an opportunity for further education.
