Wolf Echo Valleys A Wolf Adventure, a Wild Encounter is
a licensed educational outreach facility, and eco conservation center. Located within a beautiful pristine
Provincial forest system in Saskatchewan, AWA-AWE is home not only to an amazing diverse eco system, but
some bottle raised permanent captive wolf ambassadors. AWA-AWE is committed to offering visitors a unique experience
with wildlife and the natural environment.
Promote Responsible Stewardship
Experience A Wild Connection
Impart A Wild Insight and Wisdom
Wolf Adventure's Mission:
1) Commitment: AWA fosters, nurtures, inspires, and promotes a healthy respect of wildlife
and surrounding habitat. We believe the only true way to attain an understanding of the importance of conservation,
is through education.
2) Youth/Community: AWA-AWE
targets the youth, as we have found that children learn to understand themselves more, and gain important tools in life dealings
when they learn about their natural environment and residents in a close and personal manner. Animals and
nature truly are healing agents all on their own. We honestly believe that when we focus on fostering healthy youth,
we in essence also help create and foster healthy environments.
3) Protection: Wolves remain
one of the most highly misunderstood creatures, and the myths abound of just what this feared predator is truly all about.
Ask two different people and you usually get two different answers. Through interaction with our captive wild yet socialized
ambassadors, they give the public an opportunity to see up close and in person what a wolf is, and what they are
not. It is our hopes here at WolfEcho Valley that what people understand, they help to protect. AWA-AWE keeps
up to date on the worldly protection of wolves, and supports programs that help to protect the wild lands in which such animals
4) Education: Though it is A Wolf Adventure's firm
belief and stance that wild should remain as such, we have also come to recognize the dire need for education, thus
through our captive wolves we not only can help to foster and secure future wild wolf populations, but their natural
habitat. Without an appreciation and abundance of natural habitat there will be no wild animals left
to educate about.
BUT it is more than just being able to see a wolf in captivity, that helps people to get
involved with saving them. I don't think people connect with any wild animal, and wish to help protect them in the their natural
habitat, unless they also make an emotional connection to the natural wild lands, in which those wild animals reside.
This is where truly WolfEcho Valley is unique as they help visitors to also *make
that connection* and walk away with more than simply seeing a wolf in a cage, which does nothing ultimately to foster
a true wild wisdom. Visitors are able to interact on a more intimate level with AWA's ambassador wolves in their natural
habitat, through personal observation and educational programs.
Promoting an appreciation of everything wild. AWA's pristine lands are kept in their natural wild
state. This helps foster an appreciation of everything wild, not just wolves. You will not find manipulated nor artificial
environments for our captive wild residents.
6) Ecological Footprint: A Wolf Adventure, is also a TRUE Conservation minded facility as our
own lifestyles reflect truly caring for the natural environment. Our sponsorship certificates are printed up on recycled
paper, the cabin is heated using a grain stove, and vehicles run on bio-diesel, we use our own shopping bags (no plastic
bags used here) These are but a few examples, (and we are consistently evolving ecologically at the Ranch, in an
environmentally friendly manner.) We simply don't just talk about conservation, we put into practice our own advice,
and leading through example.
7) Wild life
rehabilitation: AWA-AWE supports, and implements wildlife rehabilitation practices at it's facility, as well as getting
entire communities involved in playing their own part. Community involvement is acomplished via educational programs
on how to become involved in keeping wild...wild!

a secret and that we are united with all life that is in nature. Man can no longer live for himself alone. We realize that
all life is valuable, and that we are united to all this life. From this knowledge comes our spiritual relationship to the
