RED WOLF COALITION
RED WOLF COAL… SAYS:
Dear Supporters, Since 1997…
Dear Supporters,

Since 1997, the Red Wolf Coalition has worked productively with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS) Red Wolf Recovery Program to protect, educate and advocate on behalf of red wolves.

A component of our education mission has been the public presentations at the Red Wolf Education Center (REC) Red Wolf Exhibit on the Pocosin Lakes National Wildlife Refuge (PLNWR). Hundreds of people have attended these presentations where they have learned about red wolves while watching them in their woodland habitat.

THE RED WOLF EXHIBIT

The Red Wolf Exhibit at the REC opened in October 2012. The RWC obtained the federal funding for the habitat fencing by securing a Rural Development grant from the USDA as well as money for the veterinary holding pens from a private foundation. The RWC also raised the money for a Pollination Garden and for the bleachers in the woods where program attendees watch the red wolves. The Red Wolf Coalition officially donated the Red Wolf Exhibit, which is located on federal land, to the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service.


MEMORANDUM OF AGREEMENT WITH USFWS

Since November 2012, the RWC and the USFWS have operated under a specific three-year Memorandum of Agreement (MOA) for the REC. This MOA sets forth the responsibilities and expectations of each party regarding the programs at the REC. The RWC received high praise from visitors and from the PLNWR.

THE CURRENT SITUATION

The MOA was due for renewal the end of November 2015. At a recent meeting, the USFWS informed RWC that the MOA would not be renewed. No reasons for this decision were provided.

WHAT THIS MEANS FOR THE RWC AND THE PUBLIC

The Red Wolf Coalition will no longer be able to conduct wolf programs at the REC, nor will our Executive Director be involved in the care of the wolves. However, please be assured that the wolves will be well cared for by USFWS personnel.

NEXT STEPS

We are actively seeking an official explanation for the decision. Until we have some information, we do not recommend any action on the part of our supporters. We will keep you updated as to if and when we need to mobilize on this issue.

This action on the part of the USFWS has only strengthened our commitment to red wolves. We will need you to stand strong for red wolves more than ever. We know we can count on you. Thank you for your loyalty and your commitment to one of the world's most endangered animals.

Sunday, January 3, 2016

This is another thank you to each of our nearly 200 donors (so far!) on the CrowdRise Holiday Challenge. We are getting ever closer to our $20,000 goal. With four days left, I think we will make it.

THANKS TO YOU, we have raised $17,506 with another $680 as direct donations on our main CrowdRise landing page. That is a total of (drum roll!) $18,186!!

“Desire is the key to motivation, but it's determination and commitment to an unrelenting pursuit of your goal - a commitment to excellence - that will enable you to attain the success you seek.” (Mario Andretti)

You are the determined and committed people. Applause and HOWLS of gratitude to each of you! THANK YOU for standing strong for red wolves.

This is just in case your personal thank-you got lost in a black hole in cyberspace. We love telling you how much you are appreciated, and every one of you should have received our heartfelt thanks for supporting the Red Wolf Coalition and the red wolves on this Holiday Challenge.

https://www.crowdrise.com/REDiscoverWOLVES

We have until the 7th of January, and we might just hit our goal! If we do, it will be because of you! THANK YOU!!

To All Friends of Red Wolves,

https://www.crowdrise.com/REDiscoverWOLVES

Please don't hate us if this is the second or third "one-size-fits-all" email you have received! We are trying to reach out to all our past supporters with this urgent plea!

Many of you have already given a gift to the red wolves on the current CrowdRise Holiday Challenge - THANK YOU AGAIN!

If you have not, we hope you will consider helping us reach our $20,000 goal by January 7th when the Challenge ends. IF WE MAKE OUR GOAL, 3 SUPPORTERS WILL DONATE $5000 - BUT ONLY IF WE MAKE THE GOAL.

This will be a pivotal year for the Red Wolf Recovery Program. ALL donations of $10 and above are so appreciated and needed!

Just a note to tell all of you once again how much we appreciate and value your support and generosity on the CrowdRise Holiday Challenge fundraiser. We are over half way to our goal of $20,000, and that is due to YOU! THANK YOU so much for caring about the Red Wolf Coalition and most of all, for the red wolves

Three supporters will donate a total of $5000 if we get to that goal by the close of the Holiday Challenge on January 7th. If you know anyone who could help us meet that critically target amount, we would be grateful

THANK YOU FOR ALL YOU DO FOR RED WOLVES!!

Our fundraising total represents numerous CrowdRise-sponsored challenges and our own targeted campaigns over a SIX-YEAR PERIOD. We urge you to support us by donating to the work of the RWC here on our main fundraising page whenever you can. THANK YOU! Red wolves need you!

     RED WOLVES are among the world's most critically endangered animals. Approximately 130 of these rare wolves exist in the wild, all of them in northeastern North Carolina. The Red Wolf Coalition is the only citizen nonprofit working full time to teach about red wolves, advocate for their protection and survival, and engage the public in red wolf conservation.

     Our successes are inspiriing, but without public engagement, red wolves could drift once again toward extinction in the wild. We won't let that happen, and we are depending on you to help us and to ask others to join the pack so that we can be a force for red wolf recovery and conservation.
