This week, the Oregon Department of Fish & Wildlife shot two 3.5 month old Lookout Mountain pack wolf pups from a helicopter in response to private profit loss from livestock depredations.
This horrific killing of two innocent young pups is reprehensible. We encourage you to e-mail or call the ODFW offices to politely voice your disgust over this action to: email@example.com or (503) 947-6000.
While there has been much discouraging wolf news of late in Oregon, Montana, Idaho, and Wisconsin, there are also bright spots in the story of wolf recovery, such as reintroduction in Colorado and new packs establishing in California.
Don’t miss out on the latest science & policy updates, advocate tools, and activist tactics in the fight to save wolves!
Join us on Saturday & Sunday, August 14-15!
Check out our program page for full schedule details and speaker bios.
Space is limited! Webinar access information will be sent to registrants a few days before the conference.
2021 Speaker Announcements
Michael Waasegiizhig Price is the Traditional Ecological Knowledge Specialist at the Great Lakes Indian Fish and Wildlife Commission headquartered in Odanah, WI. He is Anishinaabe and an enrolled member of Wikwemikong First Nations in Canada.
Michael will tell the story of the historical journey and the relationship between the wolf and the Anishinaabe people of the Great Lakes region. As Anishinaabe cultural teachings tell us: “Whatever happens to the wolf will happen to Anishinaabe, and whatever happens to Anishinaabe will happen to the wolf.”
Panel: Using Direct Action as A Tactic for Saving Wildlife
What do we do when we’ve exhausted all legal tactics of stopping wildlife killing, but the killing continues?
This panel will feature seasoned direct action activists who have utilized non-violent direct action as a tactic to interfere with harassment or targeted killing of wildlife. Topics include using your own body as a form of protest to stop killing or to bring attention to the issue and participating in ongoing efforts to sabotage planned wildlife hunts.
Airick has been a wildlife advocate for over 36 years. He is a former Hunt Saboteur of 30 years.
Steph is a direct action activist with a long history of locking their body to things and dangling off stadiums, high-rise buildings, and 150 foot doug firs to call attention to state sponsored wolf slaughter, habitat destruction, and climate change.
