A great group of old broads is getting together Saturday morning (Jan 22) to host a wolf parade through downtown Silver City to raise awareness about the plight of the endangered Mexican Gray Wolf and declaring 2011 "The Year of the Mexican Wolf."

They don't mind being called "old broads" - that's what they call themselves, as a local chapter of the national organization, Great Old Broads for Wilderness. The national group seeks to use "the voices and activism of elders to preserve and protect wilderness and wild public lands," its website states. (it is the local chapter's first event)

The parade will feature Little Red Riding Hood, Grandma, the Wolf, along with others marching along wearing homemade wolf masks.

The parade and education session also coincide with the launch of the 2010 aerial wolf population survey in the Blue Range Wolf Recovery Area, which began earlier this week, according to a news release issued by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service.

He [Tuggle, SW Regional Director-USFWS] said he shared the protester's frustration on the lack of releases, but the key to a successful wolf re-introduction plan is insuring the wolves' survival, and that can only happen when the people on the ground - meaning the ranching community and the public as a whole - have a degree of understanding, if not comfort, with the plan and that management actions are in place to deal with issues that arise.
