Wolf Documentary: OR7 - THE JOURNEY at "SPEAK FOR WOLVES"
Join filmmaker Clemens Schenk together with SPEAK FOR WOLVES in celebrating a screening of the documentary OR7 - THE JOURNEY, an inspiring film about Oregon's famous wandering gray wolf. The screening will be held at THE UNION PACIFIC DINING LODGE in West Yellowstone, MT, Friday, Aug. 7 at 7:00pm. Advance tickets are $10.00 and are available online through Brown Paper Tickets. There is limited seating, and the show is expected to sell out.
This film documents a remarkable wildlife success story that is taking shape in Oregon. While Oregon's last wolf bounty was paid in 1947, wolves have begun to rebound after they were granted protections under the federal Endangered Species Act in 1973. Oregon is once again home to a fragile, recovering population of gray wolves.
All of the state's wolves were confined to the northeast corner of the state until one male dispersed from his pack in 2011 and made history by becoming the first documented wolf west of the Cascades since 1947, and the first in California in nearly a century. In the process, he inspired people around the world and has become an ambassador for recovering native wildlife. That wolf is OR-7 - given the name "Journey" by schoolchildren in a naming contest.
"OR7 - THE JOURNEY" tells the story not just of Journey, but also of his species. It is a story of survival and inspiration.
Even as most Americans have come to appreciate native wildlife and wild places, 21st century science and values are coming head to head with old prejudices that put the future of wolves - including OR-7 and his newly formed pack - in jeopardy.
Come celebrate wolf recovery, wildlife, and OR-7's epic journey. A Q&A session will take place after the movie with the filmmaker and Amaroq Weiss, West Coast Wolf Organizer for the Center for Biological Diversity.
This event is expected to sell out so attendees are encouraged to secure tickets online as soon as possible.
