I have been a supporter of wolves for a long time, and this particular organization always comes up in conversations I have with another non-profit that I work for. This seems to be one of those model non-profits that others look up to. Even their website shows a sense of compassion and professionalism and sincere desire to make a positive difference to wolves and their habitat. If I ever travel to MN, this is one place I will most definitely visit because I believe it is a worthwhile venture.

I started out as a volunteer for the International Wolf Center in 2006. When a position opened I applied for it and got it. I've been a staff member now for almost 7 years. I love working for the Center and love my job. It is very gratifying to work for such a worthy cause and the people I work with are fantastic! I love the contact I have with all our members/donors and enjoy hearing their stories. I also see first hand the dedication and care our staff has for the wolves and the people who support them and us. And, of course, I love all the wolf education I get too! We truly are THE organization to go to for accurate and honest wolf information. Information is power, and with that power, a lot of good can be done.

After I retired from the Air Force and moved back home to Minnesota, I began volunteering for the International Wolf Center in April 2006. I absolutely loved it! Such a wonderful staff and volunteers, and I felt appreciated and knew I was helping a good cause. In Feb 2007 an opening came up in the Membership department and I applied and got accepted. I've been here ever since and can't imagine being anywhere else. I see the passion in the people I work with every day, and it is so inspiring. Education of the public is so vital to the well being of the wolves. We must not only love and care about them, but must know them and understand them the best we can, and pass on that knowledge. The International Wolf Center reaches people all around the world, and we often hear from our supporters about the impact we've made in their lives and for the wolves. Thank you to all of you.

I was a member of the Air Force for 21 years. In 1996 while home on leave I went to the Minnesota State Fair. I visited the International Wolf Center's (the Center's) booth outside the DNR building and picked up some educational materials. When I got back to my duty station I filled out a membership brochure and mailed it in. I've been a member ever since. I moved back home after retiring from the Air Force. In 2006 while on my way to a local lake, I passed a sign for the Center. I didn't realize their administrative offices were so close to my home! I signed up to be a volunteer. In 2007 a position opened for a Data Entry/Membership Assistant and I applied. I got the job and am so honored to be a part of this organization. Every day I see the hard work the staff and volunteers do and the good they bring about. We are a very professional group of people dedicated to educating people about wolves. Knowledge is power, and the more people learn about wolves the better they will be able to provide for their well being. I remember my first trip to see our ambassador pack up in Ely. I got the the tingles so strong and the beauty of these animals just brought tears to my eyes. As much as I've been there, that same feeling never goes away. It's an absolute love story.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

My everyday work. I record all the memberships and donations that come in. I deal directly and personally with our members and donors and hear their compliments and thanks.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Find a way to get our name "out there" more. We are the premier organization for wolf facts, news, etc. That's especially true considering it is our mission to educate people.

I work at Vermilion Community College as a Natural Resource Instructor but I also serve as the Wolf Curator for the International Wolf Center. I started working in the NR profession in 1978 and as the Wolf Curator for the Center in 1989. I've seen a lot of growth and strength from this organization in the past 25 years. The Center focuses efforts on serving visitors in a wide-variety of ways including on-site, web-based, print media, distance learning, seminars, learning vacations, retail operations, shared curriculum... the list goes on and on...
Many a student has started their professional wildlife career by observing the ambassador wolves, taking a ethology course, spending a day at the Center or engaging in behavioral studies via the Center's Youtube channel and wolf logs. Engaging people to learn facts and form opinions, the root of all educational endeavors.

The Great!

Figure out a better way to connect members to members and have more peer discussions.

I first visited the International Wolf Center to see a program called, What's For Dinner, where the ambassador wolves are fed their weekly meal. Wow--it was informative and interesting to watch the wolves eat right outside the big glass windows! After the program, I was hooked. I enjoyed my experience so much that I applied for a teaching internship with the organization and now work in their education department. It is an honor to bring family and friends to visit the Center and the town of Ely. If you haven't been to see the wolves, exhibits, programs or visit the store, I highly recommend it to people of all ages!

programs when I get to see the look on a guests' face as they observe the wolves and say, "Wow! They are so much bigger than I thought they were!"
