I juni 2010 formed WAS like Facebook group which today is over 8000 supporters and formed the non-profit organization in August of the same year the Swedes took up the struggle for survival of the wolf in the country. IAD's annual tradition "for the third year in a row" to organize a celebration of the wolf. This manifestation will take place in the month of August and we published information and press releases in advance.

WAS Agenda
WAS has as purpose the protection of the wolf in Sweden and Scandinavia against persecution and annihilation. WAS shall disclose the facts and work for a law on the wolf's existence and monitor animal welfare law enforcement. WAS working to have a good contact with the media and other facts / talk shows and with the country's county boards of several people to open their eyes regarding the wolf situation in our country. Photographing fences that do not measure and monitor the territory is part of the things we do. WAS actively working in the territory with the aim of monitoring the illegal hunting and to actively register illegal traps. We also try to consider where you throw offal and carrion operations near settlements all for not giving predators a habit to become (fed) and lose respect for us humans, which often lead to culling.

The goal of The Association Sweden
To save the wolf from further persecution and extermination by establishing a network of people, gathering skills, contacts, economic and political interests that unite in this common goal. In the meantime, we will organize events to put the wolf situation in focus, gather all the facts and scientific investigations, inform people about the wolf's natural. By doing so, we hope to get a new generation - with a more tolerant view of wolves and other predators, as well as understanding and the need for them in our ecosystem. It is our hope that you will join us in the fight for the wolf in the environment where it belongs and its struggle for survival on the planet.

Although wolves do not risk extinction, so local populations are still threatened. A threat to these consist of genetic erosion due to the fragmentation conditioned populations. (Our Swedish wolf population). Humans have isolated pockets with small populations that are then affected by inbreeding. Studies have shown that reproductive rate in wolves is strongly related to genetic diversity. With such an isolated population as the Swedish wolf is, it is important to maintain a sustainable strain in view of the high risk factors such as a limited strain is subjected to. Within the genetic science is when more individuals important even if strong forces within the hunters' associations want this population to an unacceptable / high vulnerability level. The few immigrant wolves from East has basically a very small chance to deliver genes to have a noticeable effect and requires much more than is the case today.

The wolf in Sweden today faces a carousel of highly polarized opinions and trying to see with new perspectives of a sustainable ecosystem biodiversity is probably the hardest thing in the worst cases. Adapting to something that seems strange is always embedded in controversy before an acceptance will question.

Under the Berne Convention on the Conservation of European Wildlife and Natural Habitats that member states have signed on so it seems the species generally stable. However, not all. Lack of acceptance, often due. concern for attacks on livestock, competition for ungulates for hunters and löshundsjakten. Hunting Press and illegal hunting are the main factors limiting the European wolf population.
