Hurricane Harvey is not a movie.  While this hurricane may be over and the media will be moving shortly to cover the approach of Hurricane Irma – life will slowly, if ever, return to pre-Harvey splendor…but the human story has just begun, the Texas spirit has become forged in steel and the eyes of a nation are on Texas.

LISTEN NOW

Hurricane Harvey: WDR Update.

Wolfdog Radio and its listeners have taken the bull by the horns and have sent some much needed items to Jerry and Donna Mills, with more to follow from WDR very shortly.

Wolfdog Radio started a GoFundMe account for Hurricane Harvey which we will be closing so that the efforts to raise monies for Jerry and Donna Mills, who lost EVERYTHING in their home and pretty much have the clothes on their back plus a very few things they grabbed when they had to leave Tuesday night from their home and property, can be better coordinated as described below.

We fully support and hope that everyone wishing to assist Jerry and Donna utilize the National Lupine Associations’s Disaster Relief Fund EASY to use site found here: http://www.floridalupine.org/index-6.html  (scroll down and click “donate” (option 2))  which will ensure they receive the entire amount as NLA has a cap on funds a party can receive UNLESS the donator specifies the donation to go to a specific person. PLEASE donate today. All donations are tax deductible.

 

Wolfdog Radio is also very appreciative of Nancy LaPorta Brown and Full Moon Farm, who have graciously allowed Wolfdog Radio to partner with them in seeking donations from businesses and corporations to better serve the needs of Jerry and Donna and possibly others who are in so much need from the devastation from Hurricane Harvey.

Wolfdog Radio asks that anyone that wishes to ship or send anything to Jerry or Donna to PLEASE contact Greg Largent at glargent@wolfdogradio.com, PM or text me or call me, as Wolfdog Radio would like to make those shipped donations tax deductible and to co-ordinate the materials ship to addresses and for required record keeping of tax deductible donations.

THANK YOU ALL!

Worried about your pets during the eclipse? Here’s what NASA says:

Worried about your pets during the solar eclipse? Experts say there’s no need to outfit your dogs and cats with eclipse glasses.

“It’s no different than any other day,” said Angela Speck, co-chair of the National Solar Eclipse Task Force, in an Aug. 21 NASA media briefing. “On a normal day your pets don’t try to look at the sun and therefore don’t damage their eyes, so on this day they’re not going to do it either.”

Please take action for wolves in Wisconsin, Minnesota, and Michigan

Trophy hunts are about power not conservation. We don’t need to kill wolves. Killing to conserve them is not ethical. We must do what’s right. There are some who demand we kill an endangered species in the name of management. Well…you know what? That’s wrong. We’re not going to kill wolves.

Call Senator Tammy Baldwin and tie up those phones with pro wolf calls:Washington, DC Office Phone: 202-224-5653


Tell Senator Baldwin not to approve s. 1514.  Keep wolves listed! 

Press release: Wisconsin hounders illegally harass wolves.

Washington, DC — Hunters unleashing packs of dogs to tree bears in Wisconsin woods are criminally harassing gray wolves in violation of the Endangered Species Act, according to a complaint filed today by Public Employees for Environmental Responsibility (PEER). The complaint cites state payments to hunters to compensate for hunting dogs killed or injured in clashes with wolves as evidence of violations.

Don’t Mine Yellowstone!!!!!!!

Yellowstone National Park Needs Your Protection
by Rick Lamplugh, author and wildlands advocate

A Washington-based mining company (backed with Australian money) wants to dig a gold mine right on the border of Yellowstone. Locals and a number of conservation organizations have fought this for over a year. Recently, Montana’s Senator Tester introduced the Yellowstone Gateway Protection Act that would permanently protect from mining 30,000 acres of public lands north of the park. This bill would stop the proposed mine on Yellowstone’s border and halt the proposed mining in nearby Paradise Valley. Tester’s bill is supported by 360 local businesses, local lawmakers, and the county commissioners. But Montana’s other Senator, Steve Daines, has been wishy-washy about his support. Tester’s bill needs Daines’ support to pass.

If you live in Montana, please call Senator Daines (202-224-2651) or email him (https://www.daines.senate.gov/connect/email-steve) today. Tell him to help move Tester’s Yellowstone Gateway Protection Act out of committee so it has a chance to pass by the end of this year. Tell Senator Daines that he does not need to write his own bill; Senator Tester’s will work just fine.

 

Thank you, Rick, for bringing this important legislation to the forefront in fighting for the preservation of land and animals in and near Yellowstone.  Wolfdog Radio supports Senator Tester’s Yellowstone Gateway Protection Act.

Raven & wolf in the northern Wisconsin forest

I stopped along a country road to check some bear scat, and right above me perched in a tree was a very vocal raven.  it is said that ravens will tell you where the wolves are, and this one spilled the beans. We heard wolves just a mile up the road.

In the northern forests of Wisconsin the wolf resides. This year there’s been a record amount of rainfall making this ecosystem extremely lush.  I heard song birds, Sandhills crane, whiperwill, raven and timber wolf.

The Bird Sanctuary in northern Wisconsin is part of wolf country.   I journeyed north on Friday evening to conduct a wolf howl survey.  The night sky was full of thirsty insects, and hungrier bats.
