Our wolf-saving gifts are tools and resources that we use to keep wolves away from livestock and out of harm’s way. They include items like guard dogs to help protect a herd, turbofladry, which helps keep wolves from crossing into livestock pastures, and much more. For each item, your gift recipient will receive a certificate, a photo of the item, and a factsheet explaining how it will help us protect wolves and promote tolerance for these misunderstood predators.
