Recently, grey wolves were taken off the endangered species list in the #US, leading them to become more vulnerable than ever before. Red #wolves are listed as critically #endangered and only 20 remain in their native home of North #Carolina.
Each year, all over the #USA, wolves and other terrestrial predators, just like #sharks, are hunted in tournaments. In these killing competitions, humans compete to kill as many of the select #species as possible to win prize money.
#Movies like Jaws and fairly tells like little red riding hood have taught us to fear these #animals and protects ourselves from them at all costs. Unfortunately fear and misunderstanding have led many to hunt these predators in the name of "sport".
When you think of #sharks the last animal you may think of is #wolves. But, these two predators have many similarities. Both are vital to the health of the #ecosystems in which they live and both are feared and misunderstood.
All #ecosystems must be safeguarded if we truly want to make a lasting impact.
At Nakawe Project, we can never stay idle when there are so many issues that still need addressing. Stay tuned for some inspiring #project in 2021!

Many of these species are keystone #species and our earth’s #ecosystems will collapse without them. Preserving predators is essential to preserving #biodiversity.
Our natural world is deeply interconnected.
By combining our efforts with other #conservationists this year we hope to make positive and lasting changes. Part of this is pushing for better #policies and protections for all #predators both terrestrial and #marine.
That’s why this year, we’ve decided to team up with other great #conservationists focusing on not only marine #predators but terrestrial ones too such as coyotes, #wolfs, bobcats and others. Nakawe project believes in preserving all forms of #biodiversity!
