Have you ever met a wolf?
Would you like to meet one (safely)?
Wolf educator Gary Allan and his pet wolf Tundra will visit the Campbell River Branch Library on Thursday, Sept. 27 from 6:30-7:30 pm. to present a program about the real world of wolves.
Tundra is five years old and has been raised by Allan from a pup of three months.
Sointula’s Gary Allan is well-known for his Ambassador Wolf Program, in which he visits school and community groups to dispel the many myths about wolves.
During his presentation, he covers topics such as pup development, wolf dynamics, and conservation issues in B.C., along with both cultural and mythical perceptions of wolves.
Allan is retired and devotes much of his time to educating the public about wolf issues.
His mission is to educate the public on canis lupus to promote conservation efforts to protect the wolf.
He owns two wolf dogs, Tundra and Meshach.
Tundra is 85 per cent wolf, and very used to interacting with both children and adults.
This is a free program, and will be most suitable for children aged 8 and up, as well as adults.
There will also be a display of some of the library’s resources about wolves.
