American gray wolves are being slaughtered.

Wolves, which are essential for balancing our ecosystems and pose no threat to humans, are being killed by trophy hunters due to recent federal legislation which leaves American gray wolves vulnerable to hunting. This is leading to a rapid decline in their populations.

Brother Wolf

Wolves are greatly respected in the Native American community. In the Anishinaabe creation story, wolves are described as family members — brothers and sisters with whom we share the Earth.

Wolves are a lot like humans and dogs.

We can thank wolves for giving us “man’s best friend”! The domestic dog is a direct descendent of the gray wolf. In other words, all modern dogs are domesticated wolves.
