What a treat! Autonomous Metropolitan University's Dr. Jorge Servin presented Wolf Conservation Center curator Rebecca Bose with a beautiful Huichol Tribe Mexican wolf mask in gratitude for hosting the 2010 Mexican Wolf Species Survival Plan (MWSSP) meeting. The Mexican Tribe views the lobo as a symbol of leadership and credits the wolf for teaching the tribe how to hunt.
This year's MWSSP annual meeting is taking place at Wolf Haven International, in Tenino, WA and today the dozens of participants from the U.S. and Mexico will be wrapping things up.
