Protect Idaho Wolves by helping the Wood River Wolf Project purchase critical nonlethal deterrents which will minimize livestock and wolf conflicts in the Wood River Valley.
The Wood River Wolf Project is celebrating its 13th Field Season demonstrating that nonlethal methods are the most effective when it comes to preventing or greatly reducing the loss of domestic sheep to wolves in rugged, mountainous terrain. The Project’s long history of effective nonlethal deterrence is essential in changing wildlife management from killing native predators like wolves, bears, coyotes, and mountain lions to learning how to live with them through practical methods that protect both wildlife and sheep operations.
Each sheep herder is responsible for a sheep band of 2,000 animals or more. We provide free training to herders in the use of nonlethal deterrents. However, we need help purchasing this critical equipment including solar Foxlights, air horns, solar chargers, high-intensity spotlights -- and more – so that every herder can protect his livestock.
Please donate to help us buy this much-needed equipment and help us build another year of coexistence success by keeping sheep alive and wolves and other wild predators safe from lethal removal due to conflicts with livestock.
Details about the Project and the Mini Band Kits (one kit costs approximately $1,424 and each contains multiple nonlethal deterrents) can be found at Wood River Wolf Project.”
You can also purchase equipment from Amazon or have it shipped to the Project if you prefer to buy the items from other sellers.
97% of your donation goes directly to support the Wood River Wolf Project.
