BENEFITING: RED WOLF COALITION
The Red Wolf Coalition is a one-of-a-kind conservation organization. We are the cheerleaders, fundraisers, educators, and advocates for one of the world’s least known and most endangered animals—the red wolf.
These tough, resilient cousins of the gray wolf (you know…the wolf you always see on the calendars) have dodged the bullet of extinction several times. But, nearly 40 years ago, a few visionary individuals took steps to bring this wildlife native back to the wild in North Carolina.
The challenges to ongoing efforts to keep the small population of red wolves thriving and expanding are pretty daunting. But hurricanes, fires, floods, apathy, and wolf hatred have not kept the red wolf and the Red Wolf Coalition from the biggest challenges of all—staying alive and doing their jobs!
Thanks to Crowdrise and to other believers in what we do, we have secured the funds to build a red wolf viewing facility. But the Red Wolf Coalition needs help NOW to keep our programs going and to ramp up our efforts to keep wild red wolves howling, hunting and raising their families.
We have set a CrowdRise fundraising goal of $5,000 by December 31, 2011. Please, please send the wolves a little love in the form of a donation! Please help support this effort by clicking DONATE. Or, you can go even one step further and help us fundraise for this cause by clicking JOIN THE TEAM and share your own project page with your friends and family.
SPECIAL OFFER: Donate exactly $27 to this project and be entered into a drawing to win a North Face Denali jacket and a medium-sized spoon! (This is a $165 value, including the spoon....) Learn more at the CrowdRise promotions page.
We can’t thank you with a trip to Red Wolf Country or even a t-shirt, but we can promise you a warm place in our hearts and the assurance that you have helped an animal we can’t afford to lose. Go to redwolves.com and, starting the middle of October, check out the progress of our larger $30,000 campaign!
