On this blog Seattle Times writers and photographers will share their explorations of the natural world from snowcaps to whitecaps.

"Land of the Lost Wolves" film and discussion on wolf recovery
A film screening and panel discussion on wolf recovery will be sponsored by Conservation Northwest, the Burke Museum of Natural History and Culture and Woodland Park Zoo at the University of Washington's Kane Hall on Thursday. Donny Martorello of the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife will be on hand on the panel to answer your questions about wolf recovery in Washington. For more on the department's wolf recovery policy, see the WDFW web site.
The panel will be moderated by KUOW Weekday host Steven Scher.
The event is free with a donation requested. The program is from 7 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. at 120 Kane Hall at the University of Washington, 1410 NE Campus Parkway.
For another perspective on the recent killing by the department of the wolves in the Wedge Pack of northeastern Washington, read the recent op ed column by University of Washington biologist John Marzluff in the Seattle Times. He argues the wolves did not have to die, and we need changes in wolf recovery policy.
