Wolves play an important role in keeping ecosystems healthy. They help keep large populations of animals like deer and elk in check, which benefits many other plant and animal species. Despite their value to the landscape, humans still threaten wolves across much of the U.S. with extreme intolerance and unsustainable hunting.
Your adoption supports Defenders' work to fight anti–wolf extremism on the ground and ensure a lasting future for wolves in their natural homes. We also advocate for better protection of wolves, and continuing restoration throughout suitable habitat across the United States.
All donations support our work to protect and restore the wildlife and wild places you care about.
