“Working hard for something we don’t care about is called stress; working hard for something we love is called passion.”
     - Simon Sinek
We are passionate about the work we do and we care about our work. We certainly have a louder voice, as a coalition, to speak for wolves when wolves can’t speak for themselves. The week of Thanksgiving offers us the opportunity to reflect on what we’re most grateful for – our health, our friends, our families, our pets, our safety, our environment, our jobs, clean water, the very air we breathe – the list is a long one. The real challenge is to remind ourselves what we’re most grateful for more than one day each year. Why not every day? As the Pacific Wolf Coalition, we are incredibly grateful for our member organizations and the invaluable work they do to protect gray wolves and ensure their long term recovery in the Pacific West. This is a perfect time to provide a list of all the member organizations of the Pacific Wolf Coalition and we encourage you to learn more about the diverse and important work of each of these groups:

Today is #Giving Tuesday!
Some consider this the season of giving and what seems most fitting for the week after Thanksgiving is today, Giving Tuesday. This is also an opportunity to reflect on what we’re most grateful for and then extend a gift supporting the things you care about.  First of all, we are extremely grateful for you and your support of our work. We couldn’t do what we do without you. Today, we encourage you to give wolves the gift of your voice. Speak up for their continued protections. Share the gift of knowledge and tell others what you know about gray wolves and their stories. Give the gift of time and listening and have a conversation with those who may have opposing views. Give the gift of action and engagement and sign-on to letters, testify at public meetings and call your representatives. Where and when you can, monetary donations are always appreciated. Even if your gift isn’t a monetary donation, your personal choices to stay informed and active speaks volumes in the world of wolf recovery, which requires collaboration and all you can give in large and small ways.
