"My two passions are music and conservation - specifically wolf conservation. For me, wolf conservation is really about a healthy ecosystem, and that’s a worldwide concern, it’s universal. Just like music. Music is a universal language, it’s not confined to one region, one way of understanding. That’s why it is so important to me that we reach out and make this concert, and the opportunity to help, accessible to people around the world."
Founded in 1999, the Wolf Conservation Center (WCC) is a 501c3 organization that promotes wolf conservation by teaching about wolves, their relationship to the environment, and the human role in protecting their future. This mission is accomplished through education, supporting wolf reintroduction in federally designated areas that can sustain viable wolf populations, being the preeminent facility in the eastern United States for the captive breeding and pre-release of endangered wolf species, and providing the natural habitat for a few captive wolves where observation of natural behavior is possible.
