Twenty-six endangered animals narrate their own stories, providing space to draw, color, write, and expand your “feelings vocabulary”. It’s a remarkable tool for developing emotional growth skills through awareness of imperiled species on our fragile planet.

Oregon Celebrates New Wolf Packs While Issuing Kill Orders for Wolves
Oregon announced two new wolf packs this summer: the Upper Deschutes wolves were spotted with the adorable trail camera photo below in July, and a couple of weeks ago, Confederated Tribes of Warm Springs biologists announced the Warm Springs wolves just south of the White River pack’s range on the Warm Springs reservation, southeast of Mt. Hood.
Fortunately, both of these new packs live in the part of Oregon where wolves still fall under federal ESA protections.
Meanwhile, in the northeast corner of the state where wolves have fewer protections, Oregon Department of Fish & Wildlife again issued kill orders for wolves who ate two calves that humans wanted to eat. ODFW will allow the private landowner to kill 2 wolves from the Horseshoe pack and the agency may kill up to 2 more wolves themselves, despite the fact that scientific research has shown that these revenge killings of wolves do not reduce, and may even increase, wolf predation on invasive livestock species.
