Wolf Fest 2016


Note from the author - I am trying to provided a reasonable presentation of Wolf Fest 2016. If your organization is not mentioned it is because I do not have the information. I have contacted individuals I know and BUGS for information. Your group will be added. 


I am obviously enamored of Forest and have given him center stage.    I believe Wolf Fest 2017 will be a show stopper at all levels.  



Photos are free to use - You should not sell them, not cool.  I would like to be mentioned if you use them. The posted images are water marked, I do have unmarked high resolution images, if you have a need.  You can down load images from the site  by clicking of the green arrow.

BUGS is one of the few student-run organizations in the Biology department of the University of New Mexico in Albuquerque. We were founded in 2008 and strive to be a resource for students of all disciplines who are interested in exploring Biology. All are welcome!

BUGS contributes to various volunteer projects and outreach events. They have participated in UNM events such as Hanging of the Greens, Fall Frenzy, and most importantly Wolf Fest, a day focused on the conservation of our lovely Lobos! BUGS has also volunteered for the Rio Grande Zoo and collaborated with groups such as Defenders of Wildlife and Wild Spirit Wolf Sanctuary. BUGS has numerous connections with organizations around New Mexico which allows Them to participate in a wide range of activities.....
