Ranchers and Wolves: A Better Way

July 31, 2015

In the fall of 2014 I was lucky to meet two Alberta ‘pioneers’ I have admired for some time. They’re not the homesteader-type pioneer, but pioneers in the sense that they raise large herds of cattle and sheep in wilder parts of Alberta, while taking deliberate actions to co-exist with wolves. One lives in the rolling foothills of southwest Alberta, the other adjacent to a Wildland Provincial Park in the Peace country. Their attitudes and actions are a powerful inspiration for conservation-minded ranchers and all who value our large wild carnivores as part of what makes Alberta special.  By Carolyn Campbell

Climb the mountains and get their good tidings. 

Nature's peace will flow into you as sunshine flows into trees.
The winds will blow their own freshness into you, 

and the storms their energy,

while cares will drop off like autumn leaves.
