Comox Valley Nature is pleased to host a public lecture featuring author Paula Wild.

In Search of the Real Wolf features striking images of wolves, as well as some little-known facts. The lecture is on Sunday Nov. 17 and will start after introductions at 7 p.m. in the Rotary Room of the Filberg Seniors Centre 411 Anderton Ave, Courtenay.

Wolves once roamed most of North America and Eurasia but vigorous eradication programs drastically reduced their numbers and in some cases destroyed entire populations. Now wolves are returning to their former habitat and encounter with humans are becoming more frequent. In her talk, Wild examines the complex web of myth and misconception that surrounds this predator.

Paula Wild is intrigued by the relationships between people, places and the natural world. She is an award-winning author of seven books including her newest release, Return of the Wolf: Conflict & Coexistence which received a Silver Medal in Ecology/Environment in the Independent Publisher Book Awards.

This is an excellent opportunity for the public to learn more about wolves.
