To save the lives of American wolve, Defenders of Wildlife is leading critical on-the-ground efforts to reduce livestock losses and foster goodwill among the ranching community.
In cooperation with ranchers, biologists, and federal land managers, Defenders of Wildlife has developed several effective, life-saving strategies to prevent needless wolf deaths. For example, through the use of a wolf telemetry receiver, ranchers and herders can track the movements of a wolf pack to avoid potential conflicts. Turbofladry, a simple red flag system, discourages wolves from crossing into livestock pastures.
Defenders of Wildlife is a national, nonprofit membership organization dedicated to the protection of all native animals and plants in their natural communities. Founded in 1947, they are one of the country's leaders in science-based, results-oriented wildlife conservation.
