Living with Wolves’ longstanding relationship with National Geographic enables our unique programming, outreach, publications and educational materials to reach a wide and diverse audience. Jim and Jamie Dutcher’s multimedia presentations through the National Geographic Live! speakers series are extremely popular, while their publications in partnership with National Geographic, like The Hidden Life of Wolves, study guides, and books for children, allow Living with Wolves to reach out to thousands of people to bring about change for wolves. Living with Wolves also has a traveling museum exhibit on wolves through National Geographic.
The National Geographic Society’s Image Library also represents the Dutcher’s wolf, mountain lion and African (painted) wild dog photography. A portfolio of Jim’s mountain lion images, along with the cover photo was featured in the July 1992 National Geographic Magazine. To work for National Geographic was a dream Jim pursued since childhood.
Jim Dutcher sold his first underwater photographs to National Geographic Books in 1967, and his documentary Water, Birth, the Planet Earth, launched the National Geographic Explorer TV series in 1985. His film, A Rocky Mountain Beaver Pond in 1987, was a National Geographic Special, which led to a National Geographic Explorer: On-assignment, Backstage at the Beaver Pond, a “behind-the-scenes” episode for television.
“Ever since, as a child, I read about Romulus and Remus and Rudyard Kipling’s Jungle Book I have been in love with wolves. This exciting book will help their cause—they deserve our concern and our protection.”
—Jane Goodall, Ph.D., D.B.E.
“An inspired account. The return of the grey wolf is a proud moment in the history of our American lands.”
—Bruce Babbitt, former U.S. Secretary of Interior
