If a Journey Begins with a Thousand Steps, this Journal Begins with 212 Words.

Hello. Welcome to Cry Wild’s Journal. That’s a nicer word than “blog,” don’t you think? Blog blog blog can too readily devolve into blah blah blah, whereas a “journal,” at least this journal, invites you to participate in a journey. Our destination: the realm of all things wild and wonderful. Our guides: the scientists, writers, artists and wildlife we meet along the way.

Some paths will lead us to individuals and organizations dedicated to protecting and conserving wildlife through rescue, rehabilitation and release programs. Others will intersect with the work of artists, writers and photographers who inspire empathy and reconnection to the natural world, all will explore and discuss what the discoveries we make reveal about how we humans fit into Nature’s overall big picture.

“You have to understand to care,” says Maggie Howell, director of the Wolf Conservation Center of New York – our journey’s first port of call.

The Wolf Conservation Center, like many of the endeavors that will be featured here, affords onsite and online public education programs, opportunities to sustain its work through donations and a legislator link to promote citizen advocacy.

Yes, calling or writing your government representatives and speaking up for wildlife and the wilderness counts as a valuable contribution, because, as

R.D. Lawrence often said: “Writers have the last word.”
