Our Wolves

The Wolf Conservation Center has two programs: Ambassador Wolf exhibit and the SSP (Species Survival Plan) program.

Ambassador Wolves


An ambassador wolf is an exhibit wolf tasked with inspiring adult and children to understand the importance of wild wolves.  At the Wolf Conservation Center (WCC), the ambassadors are raised by a dedicated group of staff and volunteers from early in their puppyhood.  Because the WCC’s ambassadors will never live free in the wild, staff and volunteers strive to thank them every day for helping people better understand their wild “brothers and sisters.”  Gratitude can be in the form of enrichment items and challenges to keep the ambassadors happy and healthy inside and out.

SSP Program


The SSP program was developed in 1981 by the Association of Zoos and Aquariums (AZA) to manage and conserve a select and typically threatened or endangered species population with the cooperation of AZA-accredited Zoos and Aquariums, Certified Related Facilities, and Approved Non-Member Participants.  The Wolf Conservation Center is a participant in 2 separate SSPs, One of the Mexican gray wolf and the other for the red wolf. Learn more about Mexican Gray Wolves and Red Wolves.
