Give wolves room to roam.
Reintroduced to the U.S. in the mid-1990's, the grey wolf is a renewed species in rural parts of the Northern Rockies and Pacific Northwest. A keystone carnivore, wolf presence helps to maintain a healthy ecosystem from top to bottom. Keeping livestock safe from wolves requires additional vigilance and practice by farms and ranches. Doing so can be expensive; however, without safeguards that require time, knowledge and substantial cost to put in place, livestock losses from predation are a top cause of wolf removal.
Farms and ranches that help keep wolves on the landscape deserve recognition for their exceptional stewardship. Certified Wildlife Friendly and Predator Friendly farms and ranches use a host of practices to coexist with wide-ranging carnivores like wolves. From careful observation to working with livestock guardian animals to scheduling pasture use, our certified producers take daily actions to ensure space for free-roaming wildlife.
You can help. Just $5 helps us improve wolves ability to remain on the landscape and provide an incentive for farms that do the right thing.
