BENEFITING: RED WOLF COALITION

Callie Priebe

THE STORY:

Hi and thank you for thinking about my fundraiser. Are you surprised to know that there are only about 100 Red Wolves left living in a protected recovery area in the wild today? And that this number is suddenly shrinking faster because of hunters?

I am so sad when I think about how much people love their dogs but do not care about wolves. Wolves are our beloved family dog's wild roots. These majestic animals are predators and should be respected for that, not killed for it. They should be allowed to live as they always have wild and free from being shot to death by the same people who love their dog and appreciate their dog for protecting them from danger.

On January 7th of this year (2014) we had our first illegal death of a wild red wolf. It died from a gunshot. In fact, since October 2013 there have been at least 7 wild red wolves who died from gunshots in their own protected recovery area. These almost extinct wolves wear radio tracking collars. The US Fish and Wildlife Service does not know who kills them. They need help and are offering rewards to give to people who can tell them how to find the shooters.

In 1980 red wolves were almost extinct and so they were rounded up on protected land to try to get them to breed. By 2010 there were about 130 wild red wolves. Now there are only 100.

Please help me reach my goal and be a part of protecting our wild wolf's rights to stay alive and give it a chance to survive in the wild.

So 100 now but 130 four years ago is not a good trend for such an endangered wild population.

My goal is to raise awareness about how endangered these species are and to help the organization I am fundraising for fight to keep the wild population growing instead of shrinking.

My friends and I got together and had a big yard sale last weekend to raise money because we want to find ways to help charities get money. Me and Callie love red wolves and want to help them survive and be happy in nature. This is my share of the money we made. I sure hope it helps! 4 years ago

me and friends decided to raise money for endangered animal charities, so we came up with the idea to do a yard sale. Red wolves are very endangered and are my favorite animal so, I instantly knew I had made my decision on what animal charity I would do. we asked our neighbors for stuff they didn't want and it was a lot of really hard work and it was a big success. we split the money we earned and my share is 85$. 4 years ago
