HOLDERNESS — A wolf refuge worker will speak at the Squam Lakes Association on Thursday at 7 p.m.
Myrtle Clapp from the Loki Clan Wolf Refuge will present a program about wolves, why they are important to the natural ecology of our world, current events on wolf reintroduction and controversy in the western U.S.
The free program will take place at SLA's Resource Center, 534 Route 3, Holderness, and is open to the public.
The Loki Clan Wolf Refuge is a sanctuary devoted to education about, advocacy for, and protection of wolves and wolfdogs. Loki Clan Wolf Refuge was founded in 1993 and encompasses 70 acres, straddling the Maine/New Hampshire border. It houses approximately 90 wolves and wolfdogs, divided into 25 packs.
Since there are almost no parks or wildlife reserves in the United States where wolves are protected, the refuge provides an important place of shelter.
The refuge sees its aims as not only caring for its animals but also fair legislation and education.
