Once a year, the Biology Undergraduate Society (BUGS) creates an opportunity for students to meet live lobos.
BUGS hosts Wolf Fest 2018 on Friday, April 20 from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. between Popejoy Hall and the Fine Arts building. It will include introducing the campus community to real, live wolves. The wolves will be there from about noon to 3 p.m.
This year the event will feature Angel, an arctic wolf, and Bindi, a coyote/gray wolf/husky mix. People can pet them and take pictures with them for a $10 donation to the Wanagi Wolf Rescue.
Wolf Fest is a student organized event that raises awareness about wildlife conservation in New Mexico. There will be informational tables and experts talking about different aspects of wildlife conservation. Serveral organizations including Defenders of Wildlife, Lobos of the Southwest, Project Coyote and Wanagi Wolf Rescue will be on hand to answer questions.
