Wolves

http://www.surfnetkids.com/wolf.htm

Fairy tales and folklore have given the wolf a bad rap. But their modern-day tale has a happy ending. After years of extinction in the continental United States, wolves were successfully reintroduced into Yellowstone Park and central Idaho in 1995 and 1996. Learn more about the wolf at these five sites.



Boomer Wolf Web Site

http://www.boomerwolf.com/

****

Boomer presents a cornucopia of wolf goodies. My top pick is the Wolf Walk game — a wolf quiz (“What color are arctic wolves?”) made into an interactive board game. Follow the link from the front page. I also liked the short MPEG wolf videos, and the educational articles on red and gray wolves. Don’t miss the wolf howls and their human imitators on Hear the Wolves Sing. To find these features, either explore through Wolves, Wolves, Wolves, or use the drop down menu on the front page.



Carl Cook Photography: Wolves

http://www.halcyon.com/clcook/wolves.htm

****

“From 1984-87, I served as a founding member of the Board of Directors at Wolf Haven, a nonprofit wildlife sanctuary located near Tenino, Washington. As a photojournalist and naturalist, I studied the sanctuary’s wolves up close, documenting their behavior — albeit captive. The photographs presented here are samples from my study, The Wolves At Your Door, an exhibit last shown at Seattle’s Pacific Science Center in 1988. The photos were chosen from thousands of individual pictures I made at Wolf Haven from 1984-87.”



National Geographic Wolves

http://www.nationalgeographic.com/resources/ngo/education/geoguide/wolves/

*****

“A wolf’s community——its pack, its prey, and its competitors——is dynamic and delicate. The survival of these controversial predators hinges on both natural and human forces. Explore these forces and see how they touch wolves, elk, cattle, and coyotes.” The story is told through the use of amazing photographs and powerful words. What else would you expect from National Geographic? It is my pick of the day, and includes a K-12 activity guide for both families and classrooms.



Monty Sloan’s Wolf Photo Resource Page

http://members.aol.com/wolfpark/

*****

Monty Sloan is the resident professional photographer of Wolf Park in Battle Ground, Indiana. Sloan’s photo gallery is fabulous fun, and if you agree to abide by a few rules, he will grant you permission you to use his copyrighted photographs on your personal computer (as wallpaper) or on your Web site. You’ll find the actual entrance into the three-page gallery in a text link near the bottom of the first page. To view a larger version of any of his photos, simply click on it. Just be careful not to fall in love with the puppies. They are not available for adoption.



Wild Wolves

http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/nova/wolves/

*****

“What’s in a wolf’s howl — a calling card, a warning, or an invitation? Hear the call of the wild, find out how wolves are making a comeback, and discover the ancient connection between dogs and wolves at this Web site.” Although wolves make other vocalizations besides the howl, such as barking, whimpering and yelping, it is the wolf’s howl that captures our imagination. Listen to and see (through the use of sound spectrographs) a lonesome howl, a puppy howl, a confrontational howl and a chorus howl.
