Join the Oregon Wild Wolf Pack
Wolves need your help. After being eliminated from Oregon by a government-sponsored campaign of poisoning, trapping, and shooting, the native species is once again taking tentative steps towards recovery. Americans value native wildlife. But for some, old prejudices die hard.
Led by special interests opposed to wildlife conservation, wolves face a purposeful campaign of misinformation and fear. In 2011, wolves in eastern Oregon were stripped of basic protections as part of a backroom budget deal. Hours later the Oregon Department of Fish & Wildlife issued kill orders for members of one of Oregon's first packs. In neighboring states, over 1,000 wolves have been killed for sport. Oregon's wolf recovery is at risk. We can do better.
A lot has changed since Americans purposely exterminated entire species. Science is shedding light on the critical role wolves and other native species play on the landscape. Killing only creates conflict. Education, conservation, and coexistance allows wolf recovery that works for everyone.
Help us advocate for wolves, educate the public, and inform decision makers by joining the Oregon Wild Wolf Pack today. By signing up below, you are pledging to support wolf recovery, promising to spread the word, and standing up for wildlife when they need your voice.
You'll get periodic updates on Oregon-based and regional wolf news and events. Over the last century, humans pushed wolves to the brink. Now, it is up to us to join the Pack and help bring them back.

They represent what we both love and seem bent to destroy - wildness.|
