A Note from our Executive Director
Happy New Year! As we look forward to the possibilities of 2023, let’s take a moment to celebrate the wildlife that we are so fortunate to share our planet with. Wolves, in particular, are an incredible species that have been unfairly persecuted and misunderstood for centuries. That’s why it is so important that we advocate for their conservation and protection. Along with that in mind, we invite you to join our organization, attend our Fireside Chats and subscribe to our monthly newsletters to stay informed about the latest news and research regarding wolves, and how you can continue to play an active part in the fight for their survival.
Throughout the year, we also hope you will pledge to attend a Natural Resources Board meeting and learn more about the measures the agency is taking to protect wildlife and their habitats…or lack thereof.
To kick off the new year, we are excited to announce our plans for Wildlife Day at the Capitol 2023! Please SAVE THE DATE and plan to join us in our state capitol where we will speak with our local representatives about the importance of natural resources and conservation.
Thank you for joining us in advocating for the well-being of these majestic creatures and all wildlife in Wisconsin. Here’s to a brand new year and many more victories for wolves and wildlife to come!
Wildlife Day at the Capitol is back! We are excited for the return of our most impactful day of the year. Mark your calendars for March 15, 2023 and stay tuned for details coming soon…!
