HOW TO HELP

flywolf.gif

PLEASE READ!
 
Through your sponsorship, and buying wolf gifts like the wolf tiles/backsplashes murals and wolf photos from us, you are not supporting *US* the human caretakers, any funds ALWAYS 100% go towards future educational programs, and expansion/enrichment for the wolves only, we work jobs like everyone else in life does to support OURSELVES.  The wolves are not bred for profit here, nor do we make a LIVING off of their lives.
 
AWA-AWE had humble beginnings, and believe if wild has to be in captivity, that they should have jobs and help their wild brethren through educating the public with their valuable wild messages. We believe in keeping wild; wild and thus participate and walk the talk through, partaking in ourselves, and financially supporting wildlife rehabilitation, as well as other wildlife and habitat conservation organizations.
 
Wolf Echo Valleys A Wolf Adventure; A Wild Encounter, is a  licensed grassroots, educational wolf outreach facility, and eco conservation center that fosters an intimate understanding of wolves in the young to the old, so that they can in turn be an ally and a voice for wolves in the wild. A Wolf Encounter is dedicated to helping preserve the wolf in the wild accomplished in part through using our captive wild ambassadors.  Please Read
 
Though it is never as good as actually living free, as all living sentient beings have the inherent right to do. The wolves are given the best of everything, and their needs and welfare are of the utmost importance to AWA caretakers.
 
 
 
Please keep in Mind there are various ways to play your own part for the conservation of the wild wolf,  scroll down below to find out how you can get involved in your own community to help our wild friends!
 
WolfEchoValley has some gifts such as our wolf tiles at  the EcoPawz Gift Shop. Every little bit helps to support the cause!

How Can I Help The Wild Wolf?

 

    There are various ways human beings can help protect the future well-being and survival of wild wolves. Play YOUR part in the wild wisdom!

 

1.      Educational talk: Talk about wolves at your school, and encourage others to learn more.  Better yet if there is a wolf facility in your Province tell your teacher and friends about them. Maybe a professional wolf educator can come to your classroom to give a talk. Some places like here at AWA may even bring in a live wolf! What about a book report on the wolf? Talk to your teacher and parents and see if it is not possible to have a wolf come to your classroom.  Talk about a true interactive report!

 

2.      Organize a fundraiser : and donate the proceeds made to a wolf facility that teaches the public about wolves. This could be as simple as selling lemon aid to having a bake sale, to a Bingo Night or camp out at the school to raise funds for your chosen facility. Get inventive

 

3.    Listen to and be aware of news reports concerning wildlife and environmental issues, contact the news your self even on something you would like to see talked about. Be proactive. Please go here to keep UTD on the latest happenings both with the environment and wild wolves WOLF & ECO NEWS

 

4.    Become a member/ supporter of an environmental organization,that helps to promote and foster wild wolf education/protection and conserving habitat. Here are a few suggestions by AWA

 

1)Canadian Parks And Wilderness Society

 

2) The Sierra Club

 

3) The RainCoast Conservation Foundation

 

4) David Suzuki Foundation

 

5) Defenders Of Wildlife

 

6) Canadian Wildlife Federation

 

7) WorldWildlifeFund

 

5.    The 3 R’s Reduce, Re-use and Recycle. The more humans practice these three very important R’s the less we use up the earths dwindling resources. This is good for all on the planet including wildlife and their homes (natural habitat). I personally have practiced the three R's all my life since childhood. AWA leads by example in an environmentally friendly manner, and are consistently putting into practice that which we teach. The land fills, are full of articles that can be re-used, and recycled and some that never should have made it to the land fill to begin with.

 

6.    Preserve wild lands  wolves need to live and survive on, or support organizations that do like World Wild Life Fund. As more trees are cut down, more wolves and other wild things get chased out and lose their homes.(displaced) If you are the owner of some wild lands and wish to always keep them safe, perhaps think about contacting a preservation trust to have a conservation easement placed on the land, so that long after the land is no longer in your hands, noone can log it, or destroy it. Some examples are

The following in Saskatchewan

The following agencies are able to hold conservation easements:

  • Ducks Unlimited Canada  1-306-569-0424
  • Home Place Conservancy of Saskatchewan, Inc.  1-306-586-9268
  • Meewasin Valley Authority  1-306-665-6887
  • Nature Conservancy of Canada  1-866-622-7275
  • Nature Saskatchewan  1-306-780-9273
  • Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation  1-306-691-2854
  • Saskatchewan Archaeological Society  1-306-664-4124
  • Saskatchewan Environment  1-306-787-2314
  • Saskatchewan Parks and Recreation Association  1-306-780-9262
  • Saskatchewan Wetland Conservation Corporation  1-306-787-0726
  • Saskatchewan Wildlife Federation  1-306-692-8812
  • Wakamow Valley Authority  1-306-692-2717
  • Wascana Centre Authority  1-306-522-366

7.    Write letters and articles: There are various places you can  write letters and articles to concerning wolves, and the environment, such as newspapers and magazines. Get inventive and creative. Maybe you have a report to do in school, what about wolves?  As a school aged child, I was consistently running around with petitions, even back then to support worthy causes.

 

8.    Learn more about wolves,and talk to others you know about wolves and what you have learned. There are even Wolf conferences held around the world, to keep anyone who is interested informed about the plight of the wild wolf. If there are any local wolf centers, support them and visit them, to learn up close and in person about these highly misunderstood animals.

 

9.    Become a volunteer! Maybe there are some environmental organizations you can volunteer for. Check with the local zoo or humane society!

 

10. Politics! When you are old enough to vote, get involved and vote for those who care about the environment, and what kind of world your children and your children’s children will inherit and live in.

 

11. Ecological Footprint: Be responsible and aware of your choices on a daily basis, and  how those choices may impact the environment for either the better or the worse.  Buy more raw foods in bulk to reduce smaller packaged items. When  shopping bring your own reusable cloth bags so you do not need to use plastic bags. Ride your bike as much as possible instead of driving the car, if living in the city try either using a bike, to bike to work with, or pair up and ride with a co-worker. If you like to ride dirt bikes please don't ride them in the forest, and in natural environments where not only the exhaust fumes add to environmental pollution, but also add to the noise pollution which can disrupt the wild residents natural courses of travel, not to mention the horrible destruction of their natural grounds that tires rip up. You are in someone else's back yard, please treat it with respect. Please sit down and think of alternatives in your lifestyle that have as little negative impact as is possible to the environment. Turn off lights when not in usage, turn off radios and T.V's, take showers more often, use cloth diapers (not only do you DRASTICALLY cut back at the landfills with this single suggestion alone, but your baby will be potty trained MUCH faster!!!), and stop using dishwashers.
