To My Dear Readers….

Wolf People Pup Nini November 2011

UPDATE: April 27, 2012

Thank you everyone for your support! It is greatly appreciated. You’re the best!

===

I want to apologize to you if I haven’t answered your comments directly or answered a question that you’ve asked. In the past I was able to respond to each comment directly but that is becoming more and more difficult, since the blog has grown and is much busier now then in the past.  I will try my best to answer as many comments as I can but unfortunately I’m not able to respond to every one. Please know that I value each and every one of you and will try my best to be as responsive as I can.

If your comment is held in moderation it’s usually because WordPress views any comments that contain links as possible spam. So if you include a link in your comment that is why it may be held up.

If you want to contact me or any  member of Wolf Warriors you can leave a message on the Wolf Warriors Facebook page. It’s a policy of the blog that I will not post anyone’s personal email or phone number. This is to protect your privacy.

Again thank you for your continued support and patience. We are traveling this road together and we will find a way to protect the wolves  from the vicious campaign of terror that is reigning down on them. At present I’m working behind the scenes with other wolf advocates to help and protect wolves.

For the wolves, For the wild ones,

Nabeki

  1. No need to apologize! Keep spreading the word. More people are joining the fight to save wolves every day – people from all over the world.

    • Thank you Resist, there are positive things coming in the near future. We are working hard to make a difference for wolves. Don’t lose hope, this battle is far from over.

      • GREAT, GREAT WORK!!! THANK YOU SO MUCH. I MET JETHRO, A GRAY WOLF YEARS AGO THANKS TO MY DAD (AT THE ACADEMY OF NATURAL SCIENCES IN PHLA., PA) AND EVERY SINCE THEN I HAVE LOVED WOLVES. (ACTUALLY – MOST ALL ANIMALS AND OUR ENVIRONMENT)I HAVE BEE SO UPSET, SINCE THEIR DE-LISTING AND THE STATE OF BOTH USA AND CANADA’S PUSH FOR OIL, GAS, MINING, ETC. THAT I AM BESIDE MYSELF. THE IMAGE OF THAT BEAUTIFUL BLACK WOLF JUST WANTING TO GET AWAY FROM THOSE HUNTERS AND STUCK IN THAT TRAP WITH THE FOREST ‘WORKER’ SMILING MADE ME SO SICK I COULD HARDLY SEE STRAIGHT. THE MENTALITY IN IDAHO, MONTANA, CALIF., WYOMING, WISCONSIN IS PATHETIC. ANYWAY, THANK YOU FOR YOU GREAT PICS AND HARD WORK. KEEP AT IT. I TRY ON MY END TO SPREAD THE WORD. I AM CURRENTLY DRAFTING A PACKAGE WITH PICS TO SEND TO EVERYONE OPPONENT WHO VOTED FOR THE DE-LISTING. HAVE THEY FORGOTTEN THEY WEDRE VOTED INTO OFFICE. WE NEED THE WOLVES, SCREW THE HUNTERS, TROPHY HUNTERS, CATTLEMAEN. LIVESTOCK DOES MORE DAMAGE TO OUR ENVIRONMENT THAN ANY ANIMAL EVER COULD.
        LET US KNOW WHAT ELSE WE CAN DO. LOVE THOSE BEAUTIFUL ANIMALS.

  2. Good morning, Nabeki! I’m grateful for all the effort you put in behind the scenes and elsewhere, in order to publicize the desperate plight of wolves in the Rocky Mountains and around the world! Even though I’m now 2,000 miles away, reading your blog every day keeps me on top of what’s going on. Your acknowledgment of comments is appreciated, but please don’t feel obligated to do this when your time is so limited. You do a tremendously important service and know we love you and your blog! Take care and stay safe my friend! Rich

    • Hi Rick,

      So good to hear from you and thank you for your support and care, it means a lot to me. Wolf advocacy is becoming a full time job as a matter of fact. I could spend 24 hours a day doing it without any sleep, that’s how much there is to do and I still wouldn’t be done. That’s why I had to get away for awhile and smell the lilies, which of course aren’t up yet but I can dream.

      Isn’t it ironic that Michigan turned out to be the most reasonable of all the states in the Great Lakes? Do you have a copy of their plan, I stored it away somewhere and now I can’t find it? I know there is no wolf hunt planned, which is amazing in itself.

      Stay in touch dear friend. We all miss you.

  3. it’s wonderful the blog is growing – you’re succeeding in raising awareness… thank you Nabeki

    • Thank you proudwomon…it’s been a long journey but I think the sleeping giant is awakening and it doesn’t like what it sees. Josh Bransford comes to mind.

      I have not yet begun to fight. Now I sound like John Paul Jones.

      For the wolves, For the wild ones,
      Nabeki

    • You are most welcome proudwomon!!

      For the wolves, For the wild ones,

  4. SRS. VOCÊS TÊM RAZÃO EM NÃO RESPONDER A TODOS OS COMENTÁRIOS, POIS SEI QUE SÃO MUITOS.EU ESCREVO SOBRE OS LOBOS PORQUE OS AMO E OS ACHO LINDOS, PORÉM SÃO MUITO INJUSTIÇADOS PELO HOMEM PREDADOR.O SER HUMANO É O MAIOR PREDADOR DO PLANETA EM MINHA OPINIÃO..NÃO DEIXAM OS LOBOS EM PAZ DE FORMA ALGUMA.PRECISAMOS TOMAR PROVIDÊNCIAS PARA QUE ESSA MATANÇA DE LOBOS ACABE..

  5. Don’t worry about the time it takes you to get back, this means more & more people are becoming aware of the treachery these wolves are going through, & hopefully there will be a solution. There is a senator in Idaho ,, Jeff Siddoway who is for WOLF KILLINGS & horrible trappings. E MAIL IS JSIDDOWAY@SENATE.IDAHO.GOV. If we all were to e mail him & express our “dislike” of killings & torture, I’m sure he would LOVE to hear from you. One step in the right direction.

    • Caryn….He needs to go away and spend time with his sheep.

  6. I live in lower Michigan and I can attest to the fact that we as a state, VALUE wolves and love knowing that they are here and thriving .. I am so proud of my state for not allowing wolf hunts. I found this and thought I should share …

    • Janet…Michigan seems to be the only state with any common sense. Lets just hope they keep wolf hunts off the table!!

      For the wolves, For the wild ones,
      Nabeki

  7. No worries! It’s only the wolves that matter. Thank you for your efforts… And please don’t feel you need to respond. ;)

    • Howls to you Provoked!!

      For the wolves, For the wild ones,
      Nabeki

  8. Hey there Howling for Justice, i just wanted to echo everyone else and say thank you for the great work you are doing for the wolves and your readers. I think i would be right in saying that everyone needs to get away once in a while not just to recharge batteries but also to take stock and prepare for on coming struggles. Thank you again

    • So glad you are part of our pack steven. Thanks so much for the kind words.

      For the wolves, For the wild ones,
      Nabeki

  9. Nabeki, not to worry – it’s just wonderful coming here and knowing that other people CARE!!!!!

    • Thank you Ida!!

      For the wolves, For the wild ones,
      Nabeki

  10. I am going all out for the wolf….but here is another thought…..THIS BARBARIC BORDERLINE SCYCOTIC sport called TRAPPING is terrorizing this state of Idaho. Domestic dogs and tons of wildlife are also victims to this deadly sport. Thousands of snares are set on game trails and are catching everything from coyotes, deer, rabbits and of course, the wolf on a daily basis. The Fish & Game does not care about this. I have talked to them several times.

    There are one and one half million people in the state of Idaho. There are about 2300 trappers with unlimited traps and no oversight. Why should the rest of us be held hostage by such a few? It is no longer safe to recreate on our public lands if you have a dog. We need to unite on this and stop the madness!!

    Some people here have so much hatred for the wolf, I am almost fearful to even put an article in the paper. The last time I did, they bombarded the paper with over 25 calls and I was told to put an e-mail address in to divert the hate calls. I can’t do this alone. We need everyone writing to editors everywhere. This would be a start.
    Believe me, the majority of the population is for the wolf, but only a few are running the show.

  11. Dear Nabeki. Don’t worry, this only means that more people join the cause, and even though you may not have the time answering we know that you are there doing what you do so eminently: Fighting for the wolves.

  12. Nabeki, no need to apologize! We all value the work you do tremendously. Our numbers are growing everyday and soon we will be a force to reckon with. There is a storm brewing and the day will come when our wolves and other apex predators will be free to carry out their role in our ecosystems as nature intended. Stay strong and keep your eye on the horizon.

    • Much appreciated donna!!

  13. Good morning Nabeki, don’t forget your orange juice and some down time. I’m up until 1;30 am myself blogging. Tell everyone to spend their tourist $ in Michigan. I’m so angry with Wisconsin and it’s dimwit Governor I could scream. Northern Wi. has a mentality close to Idaho and Montana. Very isolated and lives by the hunting traditions, which we all know are antiquated. Keep up the pressure on your senators on the Heritage bill. Hopefully, it won’t pass the senate. God Bless you Nabeki.

    • Thank you Bobette!!

  14. Hello Nabeki, from England.
    Much support from over here to you and all of you in your heroic work for the wolves. And it is truly heroic to continue to work and struggle in the face of so much ferocity and hatred and downright corruption. A change of heart does come slow, but I truly believe that although there are many people slumbering in the wake of all the problems that these times are weighing them down so, once awakened, there are many whose hearts know the truth when they see it and who will lend a hand where they can. There is a red thread that connects us all.
    If it’s ok, below is a copy of an essay written by Beckie Elgin, a freelance writer from Oregon, whose special interest is in wolves and their welfare, but also reflects on much else and often reflects the universal in the personal. She attended a talk by Barry Lopez recently and the first few paragraphs say much about the situation.
    Also, although not specifically about wolves, please see the link to a talk given by the great and wise Wendell Berry. It goes to the heart of many problems we have. The link should hopefully connect to the site in which a video of his speech plays and a copy of it can be printed out. Now, if only these two men, Lopez and Berry had the ear of the President.

    “Wisdom doesn’t belong to a person, it belongs to a community.”
    Barry Lopez
    Barry Lopez didn’t discuss wolves but he did talk about the need for people to grow up, to consider the health, spiritual, and psychological welfare of others and not just their own selfish desires. If they can’t grow up, they should get out of public office, he said. My personal extrapolation on this topic is that if more would heed this teaching and truly strive to become mature individuals, we would no longer have problems with wolves, because the issues with wolves aren’t about them, it’s about us, our fears, prejudices, and inability to behave altruistically.
    Lopez read to us, always an enjoyable experience. His propensity for description is incredible. He talked about how he enjoyed living on the “periphery,” distant, little traveled places where he can view from the edge both humans and the environment. And he shared his wisdom with writers, suggested we think of the reader as a companion, not as a subject we are instructing. Authentic story is not about “you,” it’s about “us,” he said.
    One of my favorite parts was his idea of inviting elders to the table when political, environmental and social issues arise, rather than “officials” who are given the freedom to make decisions simply because of their status, education, or wealth. An elder, according to Lopez, is not just someone who is older, but a fully grown up human being, “…one who takes life seriously.” Too often, these are the very people who have no say. In his words, “The best of us have become marginalized.”
    Certain folks came to my mind when he said this, those I know who are open-minded, knowledgeable, who engage in conversation about many facets of existence, not just money and prestige. I recalled reading, probably in Peter Matthiesson’s work, of an incident between Crazy Horse and his people and the European-American’s. The settlers demanded that the tribe send forth their spokesman and were appalled when a leader did not instantly appear. The Sioux took pause at this request because there was equality among them, individuals were not normally singled out to rule or to speak for others.
    My years on the Navajo reservation showed this as well. There was a sense of equilibrium among the Dine, or Navajo, rather than an impetus to compete, achieve and become a leader. This worked well for them on many levels. One Navajo teacher told me that the only problem with the Dine children was that they were just too happy.
    Perhaps a true leader is one who does not feel compelled to lead, but is respectful of other’s point of view, listens to them, and to the needs of the environment as well. Lopez fits this bill. His writings show the influence of many cultures, individuals, animals, as well as nature. He does not dictate, he learns and then shares his impressions.
    Lopez stood behind a podium in front of a packed auditorium that evening. Yet, as has been the case each time I’ve heard him speak, he did not feel separate from those seated before him. He engaged his audience, he actually seemed to absorb feelings and thoughts from them. Speaking is not a passive act for Barry Lopez. By the end of the evening, he looked worn out. He wiped his forehead, put his hands together in prayer fashion and leaned forward in a slight bow. The rest
    of us stood and applauded.

  15. This education of the public is a huge task and one can feel proud to see their seedling grow from an idea to actual reality,with the internet and other contact means it makes the sharing of whats going on in real time possible , along with pictures for proof,the yellow Wildlife Services plane better change tactics if they want to survive in these budget cutting,you Nabeki have sparked awareness of what is actually going on in state and federal gov agencies and its not pretty,I just want to thank you for the wake up call, and its time to take it to the next level…………..

    • You are so welcome Rick…it’s been a long journey but the sleeping giant is finally awakened and the wolf haters can’t put that genie back in the bottle.

      For the wolves, For the wild ones,
      Nabeki

  16. No need to apologize or answer- except to advise actions needed or your need to spread the word- it’s always those who don’t need to that do apologize and those that should that never do

  17. no tienes que pedir disculpas estas haciendo un buen trabajo y lo apoyamos

  18. Thank you ever so much for being you. I will never stop fighting for the wolf, for they are the very reason I live and breathe. God bless you Nabeki.
