Book Recommendations

On an on-going basis, we will post book recommendations. Books will be chosen for their relevance to the mission of the Western Wildlife Conservancy. Our first recommendation is the book pictured below. It’s a pretty easy read and full of suggestions for changes we can make that will benefit the animals we love so much. I think many folks, I know it was true for me, struggle as to how or where to start in making a difference. The mistake can be made that it has to be something significant…in actuality, many small steps or even just taking the right step, can help start you on the path to fulfilling your conservation goals.

Have a book recommendation you would like us to consider? Send your requests to: denise.hughett@gmail.com. Thank you!

Keepers of the Wolves

I recently got to watch a webinar put on through the International Wolf Center in which Richard Thiel was the speaker. Mr. Thiel was intimately involved in the efforts to research, manage, and educate folks about the wolves in Wisconsin. His presentation was very interesting and during it, he mentioned a book that he had written in 2001 and recently updated in 2018 which was released as a second edition. The book is entitled, “Keepers of the Wolves”.

The book is a wealth of information about the wolves themselves, the challenges a wolf biologist faces, and the people he has worked with. It’s written in a manner that makes for an easy and enjoyable read. I highly recommend it!
