Ways to Contribute to Mexican Wolf Recovery    

The public often asks the Fish and Wildlife Service if they can donate to the Mexican Wolf Recovery Program. While we cannot solicit or accept monetary donations, there are other organizations that do so. Below are two nonprofit organizations that raise funds that benefit Mexican wolf recovery. If you would like to make a tax-deductible contribution, you can donate to the Mexican Wolf Fund, or to the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation ~ the Mexican Wolf/Livestock Interdiction Trust Fund. To donate, please visit the following links:

  The Mexican Wolf Fund supports projects that prevent or reduce wolf conflicts with human activities, provides emergency funding for proactive coexistence measures to keep genetically valuable wolves in the wild, and assists with recovery efforts including the purchasing of GPS satellite collars. The Mexican Wolf Fund has no political or advocacy agenda and seeks to understand all of the diverse perspectives surrounding wolf recovery.

  The NFWF Mexican Wolf /Livestock Interdiction Trust Fund receives donations to support a unique and innovative long term plan to address wolf-livestock conflict in a way that reduces the economic burden to livestock producers while supporting healthy wolf populations in the Blue Range Wolf Recovery Area.
