I had the privilege of attending the 2016 WCN Conference in San Francisco, where I met some of the most amazing animal conservationist on the planet.
One of them was the small and mighty team ( Professor and Conservation Biologist Claudio Sillero-Zubiri and Jorgelina ) with The Ethiopian Wolf Conservation Program (EWCP), that is a WildCRU ( University of Oxford ) endeavor to protect this species from extinction. EWCP is recognized as a world leader in the field of carnivore conservation.
After listening to the lecture and purchasing the book, The Ethiopian Wolf, Life At The Edge of Extinction, I was moved by their dedication to the cause. There are currently fewer than 500 Ethiopian wolves left living in scattered populations, threatened by habitat loss, climate change, disease and persecution.
The goal of the EWCP is to help conserve Ethiopian wolves and their Afroalpine homes by addressing the most urgent threats of their survival.
Ethiopian wolves are the guardians of the roof of Africa, and a flagship for the protection of Ethiopia's wilderness. By protecting them we safeguard many fascinating endemics from extinction, and natural resources that are vital to human livelihoods.
Please help support them by visiting EthiopianWolf.org to learn more about the life changing work they are doing for future generations.
