We were so pleased this morning to receive confirmation that OR-7, Wanda and the three pups are surviving the fires in southern Oregon. We would breathe a huge sigh of relief, but the skies of Oregon are still filled with a little bit of smoke.
This situation highlights the fact that wolves live in a dangerous world and face many natural challenges as well as man-made ones too. Cascadia Wildlands works on the larger natural challenges through our forestry efforts by protecting the very wildlife corridors that enabled Journey and Wanda to get together.
We also work on the man-made challenges too that are protecting these wolves and others in Oregon, California and Washington. Please think about giving a special gift to our wolf work in honor of Journey, Wanda and the pups—it is such good news, but we have so much more work to do.
