Save The Timber Wolf From Extiction

The Eastern Timber Wolf is Endangered

There are many reasons why Timber wolves are getting close to extinction but the biggest reason is from the fairy tales like "Little Red Ridding Hood" and "The Three Little Pigs". These stories made people think that wolves are dangerous and evil but they rarely ever come up to humans and would rather avoid them. .

What is Being Done or Needs to be Done?

The first step to save wolves was to put them on the endangered species list, which made it against the law to kill them. This happened in 1973. The next step was to raise awareness that the wolves are in danger of dying out and the reasons why.  Today, groups like the World Wildlife Fund (WWF) use social media to help spread the word and to convince the government to protect wolf habitat by making new parks.  Other groups have programs like the wolf howl in Algonquin Park that teach people more about wolves and how to help them. Universities also have research projects to learn more about wolves and find ways to help them.
