A film to inspire you to fall in love with America’s red wolf.

Become a champion for wildlife’s underdogs! And help save some of our most endangered, misunderstood animals.

Our top priority? The most endangered wild animal living in the US, America’s red wolf.

When you see a bald eagle, you are witnessing one of the greatest come-back conservation stories of all time. Brought back from the brink of extinction, bald eagles are no longer endangered. This was only possible because communities across the nation banded together to save the eagle. Let’s do the same for our red wolf.

And how, you might ask? Read on to learn easy ways you can help.

Our Nonprofit Work Takes Two Paths

educational programs

Education

A free online red wolf photo gallery, a short film, and a traveling photo exhibit are all in the works to bring more awareness to red wolves and other underdog animals. Plus we are working with local school systems and scout troops to develop curricula for endangered species.

Art for Wildlife

We use art to connect us with nature and one another, invoke curiosity, and fuel change. Dale’s original hellbender sculpture is proudly displayed at the NC Zoo. And 35 castings of his first red wolf sculpture found their homes at zoos throughout the country, helping folks learn about this shy animal. Plus, if you buy a sculpture, 100% of the price is donated to our nonprofit. Win-win!
