Preparing for your Walk

  • Become acquainted with the bills affecting wolves in the city/state you will be doing the 3-mile walk and how these legislatures are affecting wolves.
  • Be prepared to answer questions about the importance of protecting wolves by learning about their behavior, positive impact to the ecosystem and the negative outcome to the pack’s structure particularly if the alpha pairs and/or if key adult members of the pack are killed. For example Alpha Female 832F and Beta Male 754M were legally hunted in December 2012 and due to this event, the Lamar Canyon Pack no longer exists due to dispersion of the pack members, which typically occurs after losing two of their key leaders.
  • Learn about the history of wolves in the US or even around the world and understand how these became endangered. This site offers some information on this topic along with links to research papers, studies, news, etc.
  • Become informed about the hatred towards wolves from some hunting groups and hunters for trophy. Read about the inhumane use of traps, snaring and new petition laws about using wolves for hunting as well as illegal hunting practices such as poisoning, illegal baiting, etc.
  • Learn about non-lethal ways to protect livestock from predators.
  • Follow a peaceful code of conduct. Remember knowledge and facts are the best tools for making your point across. Posters with photos and call to action are useful to convey your message.
  • Contact your local newspaper and news channels and inform them about this cause.
  • Take photographs and/or video of your walk. These will be posted along with a short summary of your experience.
