Guard dogs are a great nonlethal deterrent. Wolf-saving Gifts For the wolf-lovers on your list, we also have a special selection of gifts that can literally help save lives. 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.

You see, this isn’t just an issue for the Ivanpah Valley. Developers and agencies need to be conscious of how and where they plan energy projects all across the country. They need to look at renewable energy planning with a landscape-wide lens, understanding that building in the right places and making an effort to minimize environmental impacts from the start are essential.
