Red Wolf Graphic Novel

Red Wolf Graphic Novel.

Red Wolf Graphic Novel.

Red wolves are one of the most critically endangered animals in the world, and education efforts have been identified by the US Fish & Wildlife Service as vital to the future of this animal.

One unique and innovative education project is the graphic novel Return of the Red Wolf, a collaboration between the Red Wolf Species Survival Plan® (SSP) Education Advisor and a local artist. This novel, targeted towards 7th grade science students, tells the story of these animals, as narrated by Point Defiance Zoo and Aquarium’s own red wolf Graham, through bright and compelling images. Free copies of the novel and an associated curriculum will be available in 2013 for Tacoma schools and SSP facilities thanks to generous funding by the Point Defiance Zoological Society and the Tacoma Artists Initiative Program.
