Riveting Tales of famous wolves now available for pre-ordering
Pick up this book and you’ll walk in the boots of biologists who have researched the most charismatic wolves in the world.Retired biologist and wildlife consultant Dick Thiel has pulled together a top-notch collection of tales, spanning the globe, from the earliest studies to the present day, in the book Wild Wolves We Have Known.
This 268-page book, published by the International Wolf Center, features stories and photos from 30 wolf biologists detailing their experiences throughout North America and Europe. These adventures provide a glimpse into the amazing lives of individual wolves, revealing their unique personalities, highlighting their struggles and triumphs, and illustrating the unique influence an individual can have on the survival of its pack and the population to which it belongs.
Most wolf biologists have encountered hundreds of wild wolves in their careers, and in that process, many have become witness to the intimate lives and fates of a select handful of individuals. Over the years, these biologists have occasionally shared stories of their ‘favorite’ wolves with one another, often over drinks at the local pub during wolf conferences. Few outsiders have been privy to these stories-until now!
The book will be officially released to the public on October 12 during the International Wolf Symposium 2013 in Duluth, Minnesota. Pre-order Wild Wolves We Have Known today at wolf.org for shipment beginning October 14, or, for pick-up at the Symposium.
Proceeds from book sales will support the work of the International Wolf Center, whose mission is to advance the survival of wolf populations by teaching about wolves, their relationship to wildlands and the human role in their future.
