The Maine Wolf Coalition was founded in 1994 to support wolf recovery in Maine through research, education and protection. Since 1994 we have been an all-volunteer organization. Through the years we have gathered reports and followed up on possible wolf sightings, worked to educate the public, public officials and the press, and attempted to provide fact-based information so that the people of Maine could form opinions about wolves based on facts rather than falsehoods and speculation.
For most of our existence we have been a membership-based organization. We have found over time that keeping up with newsletters and membership records was not sustainable given the amount of time required and the limited resources available. In 2009 MWC underwent a makeover. We are still a 501c3 non-profit corporation, however we are no longer membership based. We have developed this website which will serve as the primary focus of our efforts as we attempt to raise funds for much needed education/outreach and wolf research.
Our plans for the future, in addition to maintaining this website, include developing and giving northeast wolf presentations across Maine and the northeast, and searching for wolves through the use of remote cameras and other means. At present there is no organized effort in Maine or the rest of the northeast to conduct the education and research that is much needed. We intend to organize and implement that effort and we ask for your help. Thanks.
