These partners include but are not limited to the United States Fish and Wildlife Service, the United States Geological Survey, the Illinois Natural History Survey, the Illinois State Water Survey, the Illinois Geological Survey, the Illinois State Museum, the Illinois Academy of Sciences, the Illinois Audubon Society, Illinois universities and The Nature Conservancy.

Saddened by his death, Seton laid Lobo next to Blanca. Lobo's death had a profound affect on Ernest Seton and he never killed another one. Ernest Thompson Seton is the godfather of wildlife conservation and was a self taught biologist, naturalist, writer, artist and wolf hunter. With Lobo's death, Seton finally understood all animals had value and knew wildlife conservation was needed to protect all wildlife for future generations. He lobbied congress and got laws protecting wildlife and the land and today's environmental laws grew from his lobbying efforts for wildlife conservation. Seton was also involved in helping to create our system of national parks across the country. He was respected by the scientific community for his expert drawings and research on America's wildlife. Seton established an early version of the Boy Scouts, teaching and encouraging kids to have respect for nature and experience the wilderness in all it's glory. Ernest Seton became a fierce advocate for the gray wolf, educating the public about them. He wrote over 60 books, magazine articles and short stories. His first book, "Wild Animals I Have Known," has been in print since it was published in 1898.
