October Walking For Wolves 5k

Regular entry price £12.00 Special Offer

This Virtual Distance Challenge is open in October.

Join fellow Team VRUK members and Born Free, as we Walk for Wolves in October 2020 to raise awareness and fundraise for the protection of the endangered Ethiopian Wolf.

  • 500 Ethiopian wolves left worldwide
  • Africa’s most threatened carnivore
  • Major threats to their survival are habitat loss due to high altitude subsistence agriculture and overgrazing by domestic livestock reducing their prey
  • The threat from rabies contracted by domesticated dogs they share their landscape with is their most severe threat 
  • The Ethiopian Wolf Conservation Programme is the only initiative working to protect the species in their natural habitat
  • Born Free has supported the Ethiopian Wolf Conservation Programme since 1995. Their work includes population monitoring, habitat protection and the training of Ethiopian nationals in field work and research. Arguably one of the most important parts of the team’s work is the vaccination of wolves to prevent the spread of rabies, benefitting the local communities and wolves alike. 
5k is the minimum distance but whether you want to walk 5k, 5miles, 50, or 500 miles, enter our race online and take a photo of yourself walking to earn a Walk for Wolves medal.
