Welcome to WOLF TEACHER, dedicated to enhancing wild wolf survival through education. WOLF TEACHER is distilled from a unique grassroots effort. Begun in California in 1969 by John Harris, and named for the project's first traveling, live wolf ambassadors, the Clem & Jethro Lecture Service inspired a tidal wave of progress for wolves. With John's passing in 1986, the program evolved to Pamela Brown, who had assisted since 1978. After relocating to New Mexico, Pam merged with newly developing Mission:Wolf, Colorado in 1987. Years of intensive national education followed, as well as production of the video/DVD "WOLF TEACHER". In 1998 Pam returned to her native upstate New York. She coordinates the annual Mission:Wolf fall tour in the northeast. She is available for teachings with the DVD, and wolf tables at festivals. Visit this web site regularly for a wealth of wolf knowledge - past, present and future.

"Matriotism? - what is that?" - a frequent question when people see this design. The question reflects the lack of balance in a modern culture that is very familiar with the term, patriotism. From the root word 'mater', meaning mother (pater is fater), matriotism defines a philosophy of creativity, nurturing, intuitive sensitivity, family awareness, respect for emotions and environmental health. Matriotism understands that our actions in the now will affect the environment, quality of life, and our earth home for generations to come.
Wolf is the largest wild dog of the northern half of the globe. Cousin to the smaller coyote and fox, wolves are thought to be the ancestor of all dogs.
Wolves range in size from 70 to 150 pounds. They are many colors, from white to silver, gray, red, brown, black or a combination. They have slanted, piercing yellow or gold eyes. Wolf fur is a double coat of long, hollow guard hairs that shed water, and small hairs, close to the skin. The legs are long, with enormous feet and thick footpads that won't freeze in ice or snow. Long toenails help dig a den and bury food. The large jaws have up to a couple thousand pounds of pressure, per square inch - the strength to bring down a deer, and crush bison bone for dinner.
