"The challenge of the 1990s was to restore the wolf; the challenge of the coming decade is to find an acceptable way for wolves and humans to coexist."
-- Jason Manning, WOLVES creator & editor
The purpose of WOLVES (Wolfology.com) is simple: To provide information.
Information is the key to successful wolf advocacy, and you'll find plenty of it here -- excerpts from articles on wolf history, wolf ecology, and wolf recovery both in the United States and elsewhere. Over several years I have accumulated approximately 1,500 articles from magazines, journals and newspapers. Eventually, abridgements of many of them will be available here along with, when possible, guidelines on how to acquire the complete article from its original source. (See "Resources" for details.)
My hope is that those who are serious about wolf recovery will find this site a valuable source of information. Just because there are now a few small wolf populations scattered throughout the United States doesn't mean the battles are over, or the war won. As the federal government edges closer to delisting the wolf, those populations will face multiplying dangers. We must make sure that the next generation carries on with wolf recovery. And the best way to do that is through education.
