A Letter from the Founder – Teo Alfero
Dear Wolf Connection Community,
Season’s Greetings! The pack is fluffy with their winter coats and enjoying the cold … they are all thriving at the new property. 2016 has been one of Wolf Connection’s biggest years of transition. Starting the year with nothing at the new ranch but the dream to move the pack before the summer. As soon as we obtained the permits for the current operation, we worked very hard to build the first compound, and we successfully moved the pack on May 7. For those of you that were not able to join us, it was truly an unforgettable day!
Together, as a community, we are becoming an incredibly unique educational sanctuary and wilderness retreat center. There is nowhere else on Earth that brings generations of people together through intimate relationships with rescued wolves. What an exciting thing to know that we are empowering people to become authentic leaders and stewards of the earth for generations to come. Continue reading a “Letter from the Founder 2016″…
Alliance Charter Middle School’s Wolf Connection Song: ‘I Am’
The children learned song-writing, performing and recording at their Wolf Connection Youth Empowerment Program Spring 2016 with none other than Bibi McGill, lead guitarist and musical director for Beyonce, and singer/songwriter, Stephanie Carcache – among other skills like carpentry, spoken word, movie writing and directing, animal husbandry, and outdoor adventure.
Wolf Connection was founded in 2009 by Teo Alfero, whose life ambition is to be of service to future generations. For that reason, Wolf Connection is not the typical wolf and wolfdog rescue organization…
WOLF CONNECTION is a unique educational sanctuary and wilderness retreat center that brings people together through direct relationship with rescued wolves for the purpose of empowering the next generation to become authentic leaders and stewards of the earth. With the help of the animals, at-risk groups reconnect with nature, learn to be of service by responsibly caring for another being, and work towards becoming the kind of person they want to be. The animals help them focus on their impulses, feelings and emotions in a constructive way; they learn to forgive and give others (and themselves) a second chance.
True to our tagline, “An ancient bond for modern times,” our purpose as a social network is to provide a place that connects all people who feel a deep appreciation and connection to the animals in their lives and to the animals of the world … People who feel that a connection to animals brings enrichment to their lives and to their relationships with all life forms (including humans) on a day-to-day basis.
All life on Earth is facing a critical time of transition and flux. Adaptability, survivability, and the sustainability of the human experience at local and global levels are increasingly dominating the public conversation.
Human business as usual has lead to the loss of biodiversity, cultural diversity, individual fulfillment and happiness, and the weakening of the planet’s life support systems. We must develop a different conversation, we must find a new individual and collective way to think, feel, and behave if we are to survive as a species.
At Wolf Connection we believe that the deep and conscious understanding of our relationships with animals and the environment is paramount to our development as strong individuals, productive societies, and as a sustainable civilization on this planet. The Wolf Connection Ranch is the real-time, real-space lab where that belief is explored and tested.
