Our mission is to advance the reform of wolf management in states where gray wolves are classified as game animals, and help ensure the continued recovery of gray wolves in suitable native habitat where they once roamed.
Wolf Patrol supports Citizen Monitoring Programs (CMP's) whereby members engage in the witnessing and documentation of public wolf management practices such as hunting and trapping on public lands, for the purpose of educating and exposing the recreational killing of gray wolves.
Where gray wolves remain on the federal list of endangered species, Wolf Patrol has also utilized reward programs to encourage members of the public to come forward with information on the illegal killing of wolves with the aim of ultimately discouraging and preventing wildlife poaching.
Wolf Patrol is a tactic, not an organization. We hope to encourage the use of citizen monitoring of public wildlife policies as a means towards exposing bad wolf policies, and using such documentation to empower citizens to become active in the reform of state wildlife agency policies. Wolf Patrol engages in community outreach and education to share strategy ideas and tactics, and information about the ecological importance of wolves and other predators.
