Film: Wolves Return CLICK HERE TO BOOK

Followed by live Q&A with Salome Pitschen/Producer.

The wolf polarizes and fascinates, and it brings disorder into our system. 150 years after the wolf was wiped out in Central Europe, it is inexorably conquering its place. Are wolves dangerous to humans? Is a living together possible? The wolf splits the opinions and his return revives the rejection of humans. Starting from the return of the wolves to Switzerland, we are looking for clues to Austria, Lusatia, Poland, Bulgaria and Minnesota, where free-living wolf packs are not uncommon. The wolf is back and brings disorder in our system. Is living with predators possible?

Wolves in the Pacific West by Amaroq Weiss / Center for Biological Diversity

Wolves in the Pacific West are at a crossroads. Once exterminated throughout almost the entire lower 48 United States, they have returned in places like Oregon, Washington and California. And in southeastern coastal Alaska, wolves inhabit portions of the Tongass National Forest. But what happens in the coming years will determine whether these populations thrive or not. This presentation will cover the current status of these wolf populations and political state of affairs affecting their recovery and survival.

Saving a Species – Recovering the Worlds Most Endangered Wolves by Maggie Howell / Wolf Conservation Center

No other North American mammal inspires such a wide range of human emotions as the gray wolf. Feared and admired, cursed and revered, wolves are the stuff of legends and a symbol of America’s vanishing wilderness. Their reputation is larger than life; their role in the restoration of America’s wildlife heritage is bigger still. The passionate positive and negative responses that wolves inspire in people have left the issue of their recovery both contentious and undecided, but also full of promise.

Wolf Stories: Myths & True Life Tales from Around the World by Susan Strauss - Storyteller

Positive wolf myths and fairy tales from ancient world cultures is collected along with anecdotes from wolf biologists to reveal an archetypal portrait of the wolf which is at once biological and spiritual. In these myths, which pre-date Little Red Riding Hood, the wolf is a noble, intelligent and family oriented animal — frequently acting as a spirit guide to lead the protagonist beyond their limited imaginations of their own strength and capacity. As a predator, the mythic wolf is never a threat to human kind, but restores balance.

Stories include: The Wolf's Eyelashes (Japan), She Who Lived With Wolves (Lakota), Skoll & Hati (Norse), Spako, The Wolf Goddess (Persia), The Wolf & The Firebird (Russia), Skidi Pawnee Creation. Contributing biological anecdotes from Dr. David Mech, Bob Ream and Jack Laufer.

Companion CD follows the book precisely with introduction and dramatic, storytelling presentation of the collected stories. 50% proceeds go to Center for Biological Diversity Predator Fund

Predator Proof Pen Build by Fred Hull / Mountain Lion Foundation

Fred Hull serves as staff counsel and tech support at the Mountain Lion Foundation. But what really gets him excited is the opportunity to get out in the field to help save lions. He has many years of experience building pens and enclosures to protect pets and livestock from mountain lions and other predators. From his experience, the Mountain Lion Foundation has evolved an inexpensive pen that can be put together in just two hours using locally sourced materials and which easily adapts to various types of livestock and predators.

There will be a “hand’s on” opportunity to see a pen be assembled and to discuss material choices and options as they relate to different predators.

Win the Predator Proof Pen!

Upon conclusion of the program, there will be a drawing to give the pen away to one lucky participant to use for their farm or hobby animals.

Wildlife Warriors - Women Advocating for Wildlife
Celebrating the Legacy of Women Wildlife Warriors As We Create Future Advocates

We are excited to announce this roundtable of fierce wildlife warriors moderated by Amaroq Weiss, Center for Biological Diversity. Panelists include:

Around the globe, women are often at the forefront of wildlife conservation efforts. Acting mainly as unsung heroes, they are among the fiercest protectors of the natural environment. They battle unfathomable atrocities such as killing contests, yote whacking, and the mass genocide of wolves, grizzly bears, and other keystone species. They fiercely stand against powerful entities attempting to dismantle the Endangered Species Act for the sake of special interests. And these women bravely do all of this and more while encountering threats to themselves and those they love. Join us as we celebrate and learn from these "forces to be reckoned with" in this powerful program.
