Don’t Force Iberian Wolves Off Sanctuary Lands

Target: The Officials of the Iberian Peninsula

Goal: Help wolf preservation nonprofit Grupo Lobo purchase sanctuary lands so Iberian wolves can remain

The Iberian wolves have been living at a sanctuary in the Iberian Peninsula located in southwest Europe for decades, and now their home is in jeopardy. The Iberian Wolf Recovery Center, which stands on a 17-hectare size piece of land, was built with the funding from “Don’t let our wolves become homeless” campaign, which raises money to help protect the Iberian wolf population. The Iberian Wolf Recovery Center has been in existence for 25 years, but now, the land must be repurchased so the wolves can continue to live at this sanctuary.

The Iberian Wolf Recovery Center was built by an independent non-profit organization named Grupo Lobo, which focuses on the preservation of the Iberian wolf species. The wolf species population has been declining rapidly in Portugal over the past few decades, and because of this center, the wolves have been slowly repopulating. The recovery center is vital in keeping the Iberian wolf species alive and well, and thus, it must not be closed down due to land issues.

If the land is not purchased on time, all the wolves at this recovery center must be relocated, and there are no other sites that can take all of the wolves. Furthermore, these wolves are rehabilitation wolves, meaning they were once abused and cannot survive in the wild on their own. Many of these wolves were victims of illegal pet trading which resulted in years of being held in captivity while suffering from injuries.

These wolves must be able to stay within this center for their safety and preservation. Not only is this sanctuary a home for these wolves, it also provides an outlet for people who want to learn more about this species. The center has gathered over 100,000 visitors from all over the world, and it provides opportunities for the youth to volunteer and learn about wildlife conservation. Grupo Lobo wants to ideally buy the land, but it does not have the money to achieve its goal.

The officials residing in the Iberian Peninsula must contribute to Grupo Lobo’s campaign and help keep the wolves at the sanctuary.


Dear Officials within the Iberian Peninsula,

It has come to my attention that the Iberian wolves’ home, the Iberian Wolf Recovery Center, is in jeopardy. If the 17-hectare piece of land is not purchased on time, the wolves must find another home, a task that will be extremely difficult. The Iberian Wolf Recovery Center was built by the non-profit NGO Grupo Lobo with the goals of protecting and conserving the Iberian wolf species. The center is a sanctuary for these wolves and it must continue to flourish.

The wolves that reside at this recovery center cannot live in the wild due to previous abuse and mistreatment. Many of these wolves were victims of illegal pet trading, as well as other cruel acts such as being locked up in captivity for years. These wolves need their home and Grupo Lobo needs help with funding to keep the center open.

Please help keep the center open for these animals.

    It’s time for you corrupt officials to do your jobs, listen to your people and represent them instead of continually enforce your personal interests.

  2. Save your wolves they are one of the kind in this whole world New Zealand Native arohanui xx

  3. wolves are very social and loyal animals and have eyes and hearts , so they feel pain like you and me. They hunt and kill only weak or sick animals just for living, not like humans do, killing just for fun and money
