October 2001   —   Wolf Awareness Week

October 14 – 20th is National Wolf Awareness Week in the USA. It is a week for reflections on wolves, a time to promote and encourage wolf protection and educate the public about these much maligned creatures.

Across the United States, many groups organize special events to achieve these goals, including fundraising for wolf conservation, visiting captive wolf facilities to introduce people to wolves "in person" and sponsoring public relations activities, trying to get out the message about the need to protect wild wolves and their dwindling habitat.
