Wolf Supporter Business Directory


As a business owner, please join us in supporting the recovery of wolves, specifically in the Grand Canyon region in northern Arizona and southern Utah. By joining the Wolf Supporter Business Directory, you will show policymakers that the recovery of the Mexican wolf in the Grand Canyon ecoregion is a positive for our region. Your business will benefit from the increased tourism, for example, wolf tourism in the Yellowstone region brings in $82 million a year.

Here in Arizona, the presence of wolves in the remote Blue Range Wolf Recovery area has brought in between $3.2 and $3.8 million annually in net benefits. We can look forward to similar effects in our region, perhaps on the scale of those experienced in the Yellowstone region, given the presence of Grand Canyon National Park and the tourism infrastructure that already exists here.

In addition, our region can benefit from the ecological effects that wolves, as top carnivores, can exert on ecosystems, as documented in the Yellowstone region. Biodiversity among plants and animals increased as wolves affected the movements of deer and elk in the region. No longer are these animals over-browsing some areas, causing erosion along waterways and inhibiting new growth of plants that provide shelter, nesting material, shade to streams, and food for other species. Healthy forests with high biodiversity will be important as we continue to experience the effects of a warming planet and will also provide improved opportunities for recreational activities such as bird-watching, hiking, camping, and wildlife viewing.

We urge the USFWS to stick to the principle of basing recovery goals for the Mexican wolf on peer-reviewed science and to resist the efforts of narrow political interests that undermine this recovery. Show your support with the 81% of Arizona voters who also support the return of the Mexican wolf to the Grand Canyon region and who look forward to the benefits, both ecological and economic that will accompany this return.

Wild & Scenic Film Festival On Tour, one of the largest environmental film festivals in North America, is coming to Flagstaff, Aspen Room, on March 23, 2024! The Wild & Scenic Film Festival works with environmental groups across the globe to host the film festival to reach their communities and bring together a diverse audience. The goal is to use film to inspire activism. We hope to use the festival to increase a better community understanding of our connection with the planet and our role as stewards to keep it healthy for the next generations.

We will host our 14th festival, which is always a successful and exciting evening of short films and activities meant to inspire and encourage an active community to support environmental issues. The night will start with an opening reception with drinks, appetizers, a raffle, live music by local band Streetwise, and a silent auction. In addition to the in-person event, we will offer a virtual video-on-demand option of the film program for five additional days after the event for a greater audience to participate from home, wherever they live!
