The International Wolf Center serves an important function in educating people about wolves. I traveled from California to Minnesota for the express purpose of visiting the IWC and thoroughly enjoyed the center's educational displays, staff presentations and discussions, and the opportunity to see the center's ambassador wolves in action in the wolf yard. The center also maintains an excellent Web site that allows the public to follow the ambassador wolves and upcoming center activities. Seeing these magnificent animals up close was a wonderful and exciting experience, especially after having had the chance to learn all about the center's wolves via web cam and weekly updates. I believe that the IWC's educational focus helps to fulfill a vital need by providing a better understanding of wolves and the role they play in the environment.

I was a member of the IWC for years but stopped donating and visiting after Minnesota wolves were removed from the endangered species list, a hunt/trapping season was put in place and the founder of IWC, Dr. David Mech, claimed to be neutral on the issue but has written articles and been quoted several times saying things that only support killing wolves and lessening the population. I received a Membership magazine from the IWC this quarter that even talked about the hunt as if it wasn't going to happen, it mentioned our DNR taking into consideration a public comment on the hunt. The article was grossly outdated because the hunt/trap was put in place long before the article was written and the DNR never took the publics comments into consideration. 80% of people surveyed by the DNR are against the hunt/trap and yet David Mech keeps making comments in favor of the DNR's decision. I gave money for years to the IWC thinking I was educating people on wolves to diminish the irrational fear people had in order to keep our gray wolf population safe so they could keep growing in numbers. Instead our state wasted countless dollars bringing back the wolf from the brink of extinction only to have them slaughtered once more. http://www.wolf.org/wolves/learn/basic/resources/mech_pdfs/311Considerations4DevelopingWolfHarvesting.pdf

I won't be donating to any wolf organization that supports wolf hunting. And Dr. David Mech does.
