Where were you 15 years ago?

Do you remember?  I know where we were because 15 years ago today, Defenders of Wildlife and all of our supporters were watching the first wolves being reintroduced into Yellowstone National Park.  It's been an amazing 15 years watching those wolves grow and expand throughout the region as they regain their rightful place and restore balance to the Yellowstone ecosystem.  Since that day, we here at Defenders have worked extensively to cultivate on the ground relationships with ranchers, state wildlife managers, stakeholders and citizens in the Northern Rockies area to help find ways for wolves and humans to live in harmony.   Check out some of our accomplishments over the last 15 years here!

It's been an amazing journey since the first wolf returned to Yellowstone in 1995 and we have made great strides in our efforts to help these animals find acceptance and tolerance. But there is still so much work to be done as we continue to fight for a sustainable population of wolves in the region that is managed based on sound scientific reasoning rather than the politicized, illegal plans that are in place today.  Thank you so much for all your help and support over the last 15 years!

I read an article about using wolves for deer management in all national parks, I think it is a great idea. I think Rock Creek Park in the District of Columbia should be the pilot for this program, how can we get this movement started? Just think, in 15 more years, the majority of Americans could be able to hear the howling of wolves at night!!!!
