ENDANGERED WOLF CENTER
endangeredwolfcenter.org

The Endangered Wolf Center (formerly The Wild Canid and Research Center), was founded in 1971 by two Explorers Club members. Dr. Marlin Perkins and his wife Carol. Carol was the third Chairman of our Chapter, and Marlin was awarded the Sweeney Medal in the late 1970’s.  As a result of their efforts and those of Center staff, USFWS, and other conservation partners, Mexican Gray and red Wolves are living again in the wild after near extinction.

INTERNATIONAL ANTI-POACHING FOUNDATIONS
iapf.org

Anti-poaching rangers form the first and last line of defence for nature. Without the right training, equipment, management and support they cannot defend the World’s natural heritage for future generations.

The IAPF fulfills this niche responsibility within its areas of operations, whilst working alongside credible partners who specialise in the other vital components of conserving protected area biodiversity. The requirement for inspiring urgent political action towards the safekeeping of the planet cannot be overstated.

This responsibility should transcend all levels of industry, business and society as we strive for a generation of people that give, not take. Increasing pressure on the world’s natural assets is simply not sustainable.

THE LEWIS & CLARK BOAT HOUSE AND MUSEUM

Tracing its roots to a storefront museum in St. Charles and an epic re-enactment of the pioneering journey of Meriwether Lewis and William Clark, the Lewis & Clark Boat House and Museum/Discovery Expedition of St. Charles offers education programs that highlight the historic and scientific milestones of the 1804-1806 expedition.  From our historic site on the Missouri River, visitors can feel what Lewis and Clark felt on May 21, 1804 as their three boats turned upstream toward the unknown.
