National History Day student researches wolves

The Historical League is glad to see their fundraising efforts put to good use. Using the library at AZ Heritage Center at Papago Park, this 6th grade student is the first researcher to use the Preserving Arizona’s Wolves (P.A.W.S.) Collection.  As part of the National History Day project, John Niemeyer is analyzing photos of wolves taken shortly before they were released into the wild.  His research led him to the Southwest Wildlife Conservation Center where he and his family just “adopted” a Mexican wolf.  John epitomizes this year’s NHD theme of “Taking a Stand.”
Watching wolf videos, wolf lectures and wolf news clips are essential primary sources for this NHD “Save the Wolf” project.
