  3. The fact that wolves have been reintroduced at all into Yellowstone and the American West is a testiment to the better elements of human nature. They give us the chance to care about something just because it is beautiful and restoring the species is the right thing to do. Nice work.

  5. We love wolves so much! You are the master at wolf portraiture. I can't stop looking at your images. My husband lives in an old gold rush cabin about 25 kms outside of Atlin, B.C. He stays there year round and sees wolves all the time, but isn't a camera person. I go out there on my time off of work and I am still waiting to see the wolves that surround us out there. They howl at night, steal our dog bones and moose hides, the pups chew on our axe and shovel handles, piss all over the yard, tracks everywhere, every season, on the beach in summer and in the snow in winter, I see scat and moose and caribou kills everywhere.....but I have yet to see them!!!! Thank you John for sharing your incredible images and know that we appreciate your hard work out in the field. ~Nadia and Slewey

  8. Brilliant photos of wolves! I appreciate your dedication to wolves and wildlife photography. what a great job you have to be camping out in the wild, braving the elements to take great photos of such beautiful animals. As an aside, I hope you encourage people to support wolves by contacting our politicians and asking them to extend protections from hunting. I'll be following your work.

  10. This evening there was an excellent program on wolves - PBS Nature "Cold Warriors: Wolves and Buffalo". Even these wolves who are in the remote area of Wood Buffalo National Park may soon or later be in danger due to the projected expansion of the Alberta tar sands to double its current size. Humans continue to rape this planet at the expensive of wildlife around the world, including this magnifient animal - the wolf.

  17. it's a rather complicated problem and in the areas in question, the cause of it is growth, development, displacement. Imagine how many animals would be left in banff if not for the growth of canmore, banff, the highway disaster. The point is, it's habitat, and conflict between humans. I want healthy wolf populations I dont want heart strings making the decisions, that's how we got in this mess in the first place! The choice is either have managed hunting or continue to support the government contract hunters though tax's . . . how many wolves does the government shoot and waste? In the states, even with wolf protection, dozens are shot, and tens of thousands of tax payer dollars are spent to kill them, paid for by the tax payers. In the area where i live, the US Fish and Wildlife kills dozens annually and I help pay for it. I'd rather have our citizens hunting wolves, under a science based system than i would our government, through taxation paying for helicopters and air planes. What happens to the wolves once they are dead? Hunters will cherish them, the government will pile them up and action them off or worse, just let them pile in some warehouse in Hinton. It is reasonable to hunt wolves if the populations can handle sustain the harvest. . . The better fight is to protect habitat and educate people about what happens when you ruin their homes and they have no place to go . . . you cant have it all . . . some balance is necessary. Build more roads and towns, more huge highways park towns, more hobby farms all over alberta and BC and you displace the wolves. Seems to me that a wolf might be mores safe outside banff than in it . . . just look at the numbers . . .

  24. Keep up the good work John!
    You are generating a buzz and people are starting to talk about the wolves and wildlife conservation. I will never forget the first time I saw my first wolf in the wild in Kootenay National Park...so excited that I almost forgot to take a picture!

    thanks for all your effort John.

  25. I am very glad that there are photographers like you out there willing and able to do this sort of work. I am enamored of wildlife pictures, however I do not have the patience or the necessary passion to go out and find them for myself. Thank you for all the good things that you do, well done. If'n I am lucky enough to be the one, these would go to a wolf obsessed friend! :) ttdragonfly@hotmail.com

  34. Hey John, I've been following you (in a non-stalker-type-way) since my first trip to Canada two years ago where I bought your book. Back then my ultimate passion was wildlife photography. I was practicing it regularly and in the process of completing a diploma in photo-imaging. Now I am almost 19 and the somewhat stereotypical life has happened, as in, either I just haven't had time to continue this hobby, or I've been working, or studying, or traveling etc. However, you keep my desire for adventure alive with every image you post. It reminds me why I am working, studying, and traveling. To one day save enough money to join you on a tour or buy new equipment. To earn some credentials and with it respect from others to hear what I have to say to the world. Just know that I love what you do and don't stop because you are really making a difference!

  37. Such great moments captured in time, hope wolves are around in the next 50 years and we won't have just pictures to remember them by. Not just wolves, but let's hope things change and people who hate wolves will come out of the 18th and 19th centuries into the 21st. Thanks for the photos!

  38. Beautiful photos. The wolf is my totem animal and a very misunderstood animal at that.

  39. Absolutely stunning photos of these magnificent creatures. It is mesmerizing to just look into their eyes (even in a photo)- can just feel their strength and intelligence.
    If I was able to win the cards I could look at the photos all the time.
