Many people around the world love and respect the wolves as very beautiful and wonderful creatures in our world. They value their lessons that they have to teach us and some view them as very spiritual beings. At the same time many other people do not understand the wolves and because of this they fear and have a hatred for them. They set out to kill and eradicate the wolves from their natural homes in the wild.

Because of this misunderstanding wolves have or are about to become very endangered in many areas of the world. Wolves are very crucial to the environment because they tend to stabilize an ecosystem by their influence as an Apex predator. Without wolves, ungulates will become overpopulated, cause destruction to many trees that they eat and thereby effect many other creatures that depend on them also causing a downward spiral. Many ungulates will also die of starvation then.

Therefore due to the importance of wolves in the world, all the misconceptions and the fact that in the U.S the wolf hunts will begin in September of this year, it has become of great necessity to set aside a special day of recognition and education to ensure that the persecution of wolves is stopped. This day will go forward on an annual basis as the International Wolf Day. August 13th was chosen for the very special reason that it is the day of the full moon.

We hope that someday we will no longer have to protect the wolves in the world from slaughter but until that day comes we will send out a call to rally in support of saving them. We must stand strong together in fighting the many odds against the wolves.

  1. the howl
    There was a time the world was ours
    No big tall buildings, no noisy cars
    N...o people with guns, shooting at
    Everything they see
    When we could howl
    As a family
    When we could roam our world
    At will
    Not worrying about if we would
    Be killed
    The moon our beacon, the sun our friend
    We did not think this would ever end

    A poem by Baron Barrymore Halpenny

    I am but a Wolf, born to be free,
    This should be clear, for all to see,
    I want nothing, but what is rightfully mine,
    Decreed as such, since the beginning of time.

    I hold no anger, yet man I fear,
    For man destroys, yet sheds no tear,
    For how can I, have respect for you,
    With all the destruction, that man can do.

    I loved my black wolf, we was my protector for years, i had him since he was a pup,and i was a child, he would not let anyone get close to harm me,I could see it in his eyes, he would always be with me, even today he is still with me in my dreams, he walked beside me, he put his mouth on my hand and never put a mark on me, when I'm sick or need help he is always there for me, O Siam

    I am a wild grey wolf.

    There is no place for me,

    Most forests are taken.

    I am a warrior without sword,

    I have a strong dreams.

    No need for weapon, I am awaken…

    I am a wild grey wolf.

    Still cannot find my pack,

    Most forgot , why they are hunting.

    I am shifting anger to hope,

    Moon covers a pain within a light.

    One day they will hear my heart beat…
