The National Wolfwatcher Coalition is proud to be one of five conservation groups that crafted The Wolf Conservation Planning and Resource Bank documents. The other groups included, Endangered Species Coalition, Humane Society of the United States, Wildlife Guardians and Center for Biological Diversity. Jodi Habush Sinykin put her career with Midwest Environmental Advocates on hold to lend her expertise in the writing and researching these plans. Outside experts were consulted and include scientists from academia with expertise in wolf biology, ecology, behavior, social science, ethics, philosophy, conflicts and hunting and trapping. We also consulted with tribal members and staffers who currently or formerly worked for state or federal agencies on wolf recovery and conservation.
These documents are valuable tools and promote coexistence with wolves using facts and scientific data, not fears, myths and embellished tales.
