Some award winning First Nations musicians have gathered in support of their brother and teacher the Grey Wolf.

Once roaming across the entire country; but for the past 40 years the gray wolf has been listed on the Endangered Species Act list as an endangered species, but the United States Fish and Wildlife Service is planning to remove the wolf from that endangered species list in the United States and Mexico. While the grey wolf population has recovered somewhat since being on the endangered species list, conservation advocates for keeping the wolf on the list say that there are still areas where the wolf can still inhabit. Removing the grey wolf from the list would open it up to the dangers of hunting and trapping.

In honour and to support of the grey wolf and to keep him on the list, Native American musicians from America and around the world have recorded a CD of 12 songs dedicated to the wolf. The CD - "Wolf" - is available for $9.99 via digital download at The CD will be released in January 2014.

The Endangered Species Coalition and the New York Wolf Conservation Center have mounted a campaign to oppose the US Fish and Wildlife's proposal. The idea for the CD arose after Native American Music Association President Ellen Bello made a visit to the NY Wolf Conservation Center - the beneficiary from the proceeds of the CD sales. Atka of the NY wolf conservation center is featured on the cover of the CD.

The tracklisting for the "Wolf" CD is:

    Beautiful sound! I am so against this allowing for hunting again. Humans have to realized we are the ones damaging the earth and its resources, not the animals.

    NICE MUSIC to bolster a very worthy cause ... long live the wolves (EVERY species). They were put on earth for a reason and humans have no justification to remove them or anything else. They are a cohesive entity ... Mother Nature at her best. GREAT ending to to song, too. LOVE IT: Pam Adams (Facebook)
