About Us
Educate Advocate Participate
The motto of the National Wolfwatcher Coalition is to Educate, Advocate, Participate for wolves. 

Across the nation, we have volunteers who:

Educate by maintaining tables at events; speaking to groups; maintaining our Facebook page, Twitter, Pinterest; engaging children through our website -- all in an attempt to dispel the myths about wolves.

Advocate by writing letters to the editor; speaking up for wolves; issuing alerts; contacting lawmakers and collaborating with other organizations.

Participate by attending conferences and workshops; attending
hearings and submitting comments.

We have followers in the U.S. and many foreign countries including England, Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Australia, New Zealand - all who care deeply about wolves.  We would not be able to accomplish all that we do, without your generous support!

We have no membership dues and we never send out letters asking for money.  We rely on donations and profits from the sale of our merchandise.  Our administrative costs are low because our
volunteers work long hours without any compensation. 

So if you have ever written a letter, contacted a legislator, attended a meeting, thank you.  If you ever sent us a donation or purchased a shirt, thank you.  It is because of you, that we exist, and it is because of you that we have been able to educate, advocate and participate for wolves.

Wood River Wolf Project

Wolfwatcher has a strong commitment to supporting non-lethal management of wolves.  Recently, with your help, we were able to  sponsor the Wood River Wolf Project workshop.     

We also purchased four SPOT GPS units to be used in the project this summer.  The units will help save wolves in Idaho and duplicate these nonlethal deterrents to help wolves and other imperiled predators around the world. 


The wood river valley is nestled in the Sawtooth Mountains of Idaho. This area provides grazing for more than 25,000 sheep each

summer and is  home to several active wolf packs.  


Over a seven year period, 2008 - 2013, the documented sheep

Working with Fladry 

losses to wolves in the project area were 90% lower than the USDA National Agriculture Statistics Service (NASS) reported Idaho loss-rate.  


The loss rate averaged 0.05% compared to 0.54% the NASS state-wide estimated during the same period. This

cooperative program between Defenders and producers is a blueprint  for what is possible when non-lethal management is implemented .


Grand Canyon Wolf Recovery Project
Wolves are native to northern Arizona but were eradicated from the region in the early 1900s as part of a wolf extermination program.

The Mexican gray wolf is now considered the most endangered mammal in North America, with a population of only about 83 individuals in the wild of eastern Arizona and western New Mexico.
Because of the critical ecological role played by wolves, in 2004, concerned citizens and conservation leaders joined forces to form the GCWRP, to restore the wolf to its former range.

For the past two years, the National Wolfwatcher Coalition has been a proud sponsor of the Big Lake Howliday Campout Weekend.

Join the Grand Canyon Wolf Recovery Project for a fun-filled weekend learning about and celebrating the return of Mexican wolves to the wild. This year marks the 16 year anniversary of the first releases of Mexican wolves back into the wild in the Blue Range Wolf Recovery Area.

This year's event will take place 8/8 - 8/11 at Apache Trout Campground Fir Group site at Big Lake in the Apache National Forest, Arizona.  For more information and to register go to Big Lake Howliday

The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (FWS) has proposed changes to Mexican wolf management and will hold public hearings on its proposal on Monday, August 11 at Hon-dah, near Pinetop, Arizona and on Wednesday, August 13 in Truth or Consequences, New Mexico. Help bring back wolves to the Grand Canyon Region.  For talking points see
