Wolves and Humans-A new story of coexistence
We are writing and living a new story of coexistence with our wild lands and animals. The wolf is an endangered creature in today's society that was raised on "Little Red Riding Hood" and the "The three little pigs and the big bad wolf".
Yet the wolf is gaining in the hearts of many. What makes coexistence between humans, livestock and wolves possible? Why do we all belong in the web of life?

We all belong in the web of life. No exceptions. Ever since I was a child I have been deeply connected to nature and her creatures. Now is the time to give back and be a voice for the voiceless animals and earth and to preserve the vanishing wildness inside and outside of us.
