We continue to promote the conservation of wolves in BC by attending summer festivals. People get to see Tundra & I get to talk to these people why we need to protect wolves in BC, much more than we are doing.
We attended Sea Fest & Music Fest in Alert Bay, the last weekend in July. About 250 people stopped by to see us. Many of the visitors were the First Nations people from the Namgis community. The wolf is a spiritual/cultural icon for the aboriginal people with the wolf being the most spiritual animal in Native culture. It was a very successful weekend.
Last weekend, we attended VIEX in Nanaimo where we saw over 1,000 people. Our booth was a very popular place to visit. We were able to reach all these people & Tundra wowed them. I received many positive reviews about Tundra & the work we are doing in the schools & community meetings, advocating for wolves. A great deal of the visitors agreed that the wolf is a very vital part of a healthy ecosystem.
If only we could get the BC Fish & Wildlife Branch to accept this concept so we can see less slaughtering of wolves in BC.
