Yellowstone wolves like 06, 926F, 1109F, and all Northern Rocky wolves who are facing the dangers of trophy killing. EVERY WOLF MATTERS!!!!
Warriors 4 Wolves is a collaboration between The 06 Legacy, Julie Argyle, and Leo Leckie.
The 06 Legacy is a 501(c)(4) organization that seeks to protect American gray wolves from trophy killing and restore wolf populations through education, awareness, and endorsement of candidates who support our vision of keeping wolves safe.
06’s life inspired millions and her death broke our hearts, but her legacy brings together wolf enthusiasts, advocates, and guardians who envision and fight for a world in which wolves and humans coexist peacefully and respectfully. We continue to fight in 06’s honor to end trophy killing and preserve the sacred nature of wolves in the American wilderness.
Julie Argyle is a professional photographer who has spent forty years photographing wildlife within the Rocky Mountain West. Her photography business, Wild Love Images, features pictures of wildlife in the greater Yellowstone ecosystem.
Julie is the author of two books, Wolves - Western Warriors and Bears - The Mighty Grizzlies of the West. Julie is an active voice for the preservation and protection of wildlife particularly wolves, grizzly bears and wild horses. She recently started - Howl for Life - a campaign to bring awareness to the inhumane treatment of wolves across the country in hopes of bringing protections back to this incredible species.
Leo Leckie became inspired by wolves during his ten years living alongside them in Yellowstone National Park; so much so that he was called to share the life stories and lessons of these amazing and essential beings. This calling culminated in his co-founding of the Yellowstone Wolf Family Tree; the largest and most unique family tree on Ancestry.com that today boasts nearly 700 human guests and features the life stories and genealogy of nearly 1,300 Yellowstone wolves.
In addition to various publications and presentations about wolves, Leo works as the Yellowstone Wolf Family Tree archivist and site manager for The 06 Legacy and as Lead of Program Outreach for Wolf Connection. Leo’s love of nature began when he was very young; a love that was encouraged by his dad and Hugh Curtis. According to Leo, "The stories I share today find their roots in these beginnings, as well as the many other generous loved ones, friends, and colleagues who have shared with and educated along the way.”
