In honor of Wolf Awareness Week in October I have activated the gofundme campaign for wolf protection we created before the pandemic.
As another part of our efforts on behalf of wolves, ‘Be Heart Now,’ has helped create a virtual art show online at https://www.beheartnow.com/saveourwolves.
People can either donate to gofundme or buy art from our virtual show or do both! There is also a video of other artists in our project, and if something interests you, we can connect you with them.
All proceeds help support the work being done to halt decisions in this administration to undo wolf protection, and to stop the unnecessary and merciless killing of wolves.
Keystone predators, such as wolves, create an environment that shifts climate change away from a pandemic world. Wolves are amazing animals we cannot afford to lose.

Nanda Currant, filmmaker and director of the Heroes and Heroines Project spoke at the opening July 5th, about the importance and role of art in service of the wild, and their focus on behalf of wolves.
The preview show is a taste of some of the work created by twenty-five artists about wolves. Art will be on display including cards, wave books, t-shirts, prints, photos, dvds, paintings and woodcuts.
Information will be available about wolf recovery past and present.
This event is timely to help oppose the recent proposal to remove them from the endangered species list. The deadline is July 15. Come and enjoy the art, sign the petition, and learn about wolves in our midst.
A portion of the proceeds will benefit the wolf protection fund.
