The challenges & joys of working for the Wolves

On June 2nd, I interviewed Amy Harwood, of Lobos of the Southwest, about her organization’s efforts to advocate for the Mexican Grey Wolf, and particularly its reintroduction into the wild.

Lobos of the Southwest is a joint outreach and education initiative of several different environmental organizations and individuals who live in the southwest US.

In our conversation, we talked about how the Mexican Gray Wolf nearly went extinct; breeding and reintroduction efforts, including cross-fostering puppies; the challenges of working with the US Fish & Wildlife Agency; cultural challenges; how 2020 was a rough year for the Wolf; and the joys of public advocacy, especially working with young people.

Lobos of the Southwest is doing great work and is an organization well worth supporting. See links below.
