The California Wolf Center cordially invites you to our 2013 Wolf Awareness Week fundraising event exploring the wolves of Isle Royale and the ethics of wildlife conservation. John Vucetich, Associate Professor of Wildlife Ecology at Michigan Tech University and co-director of the Isle Royale wolf-moose study, will speak at both afternoon and evening programs about the unique role that wolves play in the Isle Royale ecosystem. The wolf-moose study that Dr. Vucetich helps lead is the longest continuous study of a predator-prey system in the world, focusing on the ecology of predation and how that predation can affect populations of both predators and their prey. With the future of the Isle Royale wolf population in question, Dr. Vucetich's research has never been more critical.

Proceeds from this fundraising event will go to support the California Wolf Center's resident wolves as well as our efforts to help wolf recovery in the wild, including in our home state of California as wolves reclaim their place among California's native wildlife. Tickets are non-refundable, so please consider your ticket price a donation toward our fundraising goal.
