SWEC: Wolves, butterflies, groundwater, Rio Grande planning

July 31, 2014
Can wolves help butterflies, frogs, and trees survive?
Want to watch a movie that could change your life? Join us for a special screening of Lords of Nature: Life in a Land of Great Predators to learn how wolves change landscapes in surprising and amazing ways. You have two opportunities:
  • Tonight, July 31, 7 pm at SWEC, with refreshments provided by Andele’s Restaurant
  • Thursday, August 7, 7 pm at the Elephant Butte Inn in Truth or Consequences, with refreshments provided.
A special status update on the Mexican gray wolf, the Southwest’s own native top predator, will be presented at both events. USFWS is currently considering changes to the reintroduction program of the Mexican wolf that could result in wolf recovery or push wolves in the Southwest back to the brink of extinction. Call Tricia at 575-522-5552 for more information.
