I am a wolf in the woods
Watching the wreckage of my world
Some think I’m bad, I am good
Humans have taken my whole earth
Changing the climate with their trash
Forests are burning down to ash
Oceans and wildlife now must ask
What would a good one do?

It hurts sometimes, you’ll hear me cry
We call to reach out in the night

I am a Mom with my pups
Watching the human with a gun
I will protect them from harm
Building a den to keep them warm
Just like you, we need a home
We use tlivlivehe earth, some strip it down
Just like you, I guard my own
What would a good one do?

It hurts sometimes, you’ll hear me cry
We call to reach out in the night

(Spoken Conservation Message)
The definition of conservation is careful preservation, protection and planned management of a natural resource to prevent exploitation, destruction, or neglect.
True earth, water and wildlife conservation is based on science, promotes honest awareness and shares resources where there is the greatest need for scientific research, education, and intervention.
We’re asking you to help, not just the wolves, but to support conservation of at-risk species across the globe. Your support will be shared to meet the needs of wildlife and their habitats that are most at risk to prevent extinction and destruction while promoting healthy climate change through crucial conservation.

I am a wolf with a home
That is protected in this world
One with the ones who are good
Humans who work for a whole earth
Preventing climate change our goal
Rebuilding forests planting trees
Saving oceans and animals
Who are most in need
It hurts sometimes, you’ll hear me cry Ooooooohhhh
We call to reach out in the night Ooooooohhhh
I am a wolf who is good.



SALEM, NY & COLUMBUS, OH – April 20, 2021: In celebration of Earth Day coming up on April 22, Shawna Ray, a singer/songwriter, author and communicator from Columbus, Ohio, wrote the song “Good Wolf” and created a short film to bring awareness to the plight of wolves and wildlife.

Shawna first visited the WCC in 2018 at the invitation of Dr. Scott Kantro, a long-time member of the WCC’s Board of Directors. Shawna was captivated by the wolves and inspired by the WCC’s efforts to protect their wild kin. She wrote “Good Wolf” the night after her visit to the WCC and recorded it in Nashville, TN produced by Elliott Didur. An acoustic version of the Good Wolf song was released on Shawna’s “Catch 22” Album released on 2-22-2020. Elliott and Shawna later developed the song with full production using video of wolves from the WCC and other licensed stock footage to create the short film.

Founded by Hélène Grimaud in 1999, the Wolf Conservation Center (WCC) is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit environmental education organization working to protect and preserve wolves in North America through science-based education, advocacy, and participation in the federal recovery and release programs for two critically endangered wolf species – the Mexican gray wolf and red wolf. Through wolves, the WCC teaches the broader message of conservation, ecological balance, and personal responsibility for improved human stewardship of our World.

Good Wolf is written from the perspective of a mother wolf wanting to protect her family. We encourage you to watch and share the short film and support conservation this Earth Day!
