Update 5/12/2016, Received additional information on Wolf Fest participants. reformatted page and fixed some and probably added some typos. I am all for defending a wilder life, but that is not the name of the organization. I do not generally edit captured text, I am the last person in the world that should be playing grammar NAZI. No change to photos.
Wolf Fest is Sponsored by BUGS (Biology Undergraduate Society)
BUGS is one of the few student-run organizations in the Biology department of the University of New Mexico in Albuquerque. We were founded in 2008 and strive to be a resource for students of all disciplines who are interested in exploring Biology. All are welcome!
BUGS contributes to various volunteer projects and outreach events. They have participated in UNM events such as Hanging of the Greens, Fall Frenzy, and most importantly Wolf Fest, a day focused on the conservation of our lovely Lobos! BUGS has also volunteered for the Rio Grande Zoo and collaborated with groups such as Defenders of Wildlife and Wild Spirit Wolf Sanctuary. BUGS has numerous connections with organizations around New Mexico which allows Them to participate in a wide range of activities.....

Defenders of Wildlife is a 501 non-profit conservation organization based in the United States. Its mission is to protect all animals and plants native to North America in their natural communities." Wikipedia
Mexicanwolves.org is a collaborative effort of concerned citizens and local, regional, and national conservation, scientific and sportsmen’s organizations using the Internet to help save the endangered Mexican gray wolf.
Our shared vision is a future in which healthy, viable populations of Mexican gray wolves restore the natural balance to Southwest lands, keep elk and deer herds healthy and restore the natural functioning of entire ecosystems. Mexican wolves are valued by Southwest residents and visitors as an intrinsic part of our natural heritage and as beautiful, intelligent, wild animals that contribute to our quality of life.
While all the organizations participating in mexicanwolves.org share the common goal of recovering the Mexican gray wolf, individual groups can, and sometimes do, differ in their approaches to specific issues.
