20th anniversary of the reintroduction of wolves to Yellowstone National Park and Central Idaho.
This year we are so pleased to celebrate with you the 20th anniversary of the reintroduction of wolves to Yellowstone National Park and Central Idaho, an event that marked the beginning of wolf recovery in the American West. Since then, wolves have dispersed throughout the region, returning to ecosystems that had long suffered in their absence. They continue on their amazing path to recovery, expanding into states, like California, that haven’t seen wolves in almost a century.
This year we also celebrate an incredible gift from two longtime supporters, John and Jean Greene. Their gift has allowed us to establish the John and Jean Greene Endowment Fund, which will, along with your continued support, help to sustain Living with Wolves now and in the future. We are inspired and humbled by the Greene’s commitment to the protection of this magnificent keystone species.
Reflecting upon the past twenty years of wolf recovery in the West, we are astounded by the progress wolves continue to make despite the many challenges they face. Although we know the journey to protect wolves is long, we remain resolute. Our unique and storied approach to inspiring and engaging the public through education, science and partnerships will ensure that wolves can survive and thrive in the places they now live or will soon return.
In the pages that follow, we celebrate your support and the work we do on behalf of wolves that could not happen without you.
