Atka the Arctic Wolf…

Here are a few videos from the Wolf Conservation Center that star Atka, their ambassador Arctic wolf.  He’s the same ambassador wolf that visited Diane’s sixth graders in New York, last December. He’s a real beauty.

I want to promote a positive wolf day every week, so we can focus on the good things. There is so much bad news, it’s bringing us all down.

I urge people, to send me positive educational wolf videos they may find or create themselves. I’m convinced we need to do more to promote wolf education and focus on the positive. It’s just as important as reporting on the daily barrage of bad wolf news we are subjected to.

So enjoy Atka, he’s a quite wonderful wolf ambassador. Thank you to the Wolf Conservation Center for the amazing work they do educating the public and especially young people about the importance of  wolves!!

Enjoy!!

  3. I hope someday to be able to meet this beautiful boy who so embodies the true beauty and spirit of his species. Nabeki, you are so right. We do need to focus on the positive where our wolves are concerned in order to have the strength to battle effectively the negative. I have watched the healing video of Apricot at least once daily. It has helped me to “get back to center” so to speak, and makes me stronger. HOWLS to our wolves for all the good they bring to us!

  4. Aww, what a beautiful wolf. I’m so glad the lady brought up the story of “Little Red Riding Hood” and told them how false it is. Although I disagree when she stated that there are only two types of wolf, the Grey Wolf and the Red Wolf. What about the Mexican Grey, and the Ethiopian? Arctic Greys are different from North American Greys too.

    You’re right Nabeki, we need to focus on the good points so we don’t get all depressed. I’m glad you posted this.

    Today, I was teaching an adult about the truth about wolves and how important they are to the world. I felt like I have given her some useful information for her to pass on to other people. ^.^

    • Yes I posted this to remind us what we’re fighting for. What an incredible ambassador Atka is for his species. I love that the Wolf Conservation Center works to dispel myths. I though it was especially funny when she said wolves aren’t wearing your grandma’s nightgown…lol.

  6. @Zarago Maggie was referring to the fact that there were 2 species of wolf in the U.S. (which is what the accompanying slide says). The Arctic and Mexican gray wolf are both considered subspecies of the gray wolf. Glad you enjoyed the videos!
