Atka, the wolf, traveled through many eastern states as the ambassador for the Wolf Conservation Center
PLYMOUTH, MA, UNITED STATES, June 17, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ -- Briley & Baxter Publications is pleased to announce the release of Lessons Learned from Atka, the beautiful and inspiring story of Atka, the traveling ambassador and beloved wolf from the Wolf Conservation Center in South Salem, NY. Lessons Learned from Atka was written by Lois Kral and is available for preorder on Amazon and Barnes & Noble and will be released on June 28.
During his lifetime of sixteen years, Atka traveled through many eastern states, visiting thousands of schools, libraries, and an insurmountable number of community events. This special wolf was known not only regionally, but also nationally and globally.
"I wrote this book to share what a very special wolf Atka was. His day-to-day routine showed me that we all have what it takes to lead a happy and rich life. His story shows us how to enjoy our journey through acceptance, through friendships and the joy of just being who we are,” said Kral.
The lessons learned from Atka’s life will inspire hope, acceptance, and positive change in the lives of animal lovers across the world.
A portion of the proceeds will benefit the Wolf Conservation Center.
