Jim Watson

Jim Watson is a semi-retired educator in the Chattanooga area who is passionate about wolves.

Thanks to a grant from Volkswagen, an anonymous donation and a bit of do-it-himself fundraising, Jim has taken local educators to Georgia and Florida to interact with wolves through his group Educators for Environmental Awareness.

The professional development program aims to spread wolf education in classrooms across Hamilton County.
