Wolf Conservation Center Webcams

IN PARTNERSHIP WITH WILDEARTH.TV


The Wolf Conservation Center's (WCC) educational impact is a whole lot broader thanks to our partnership with experienced live wildlife broadcasters from wildearth.tv! Our collection of webcams allow an unlimited number of viewers to enter the private lives of our "Ambassador" wolves Atka, Alawa, Zephyr and Nikai, and three elusive packs of critically endangered wolves via unobtrusive cameras in and around anticipated den sites.

As participant in the Species Survival Plans (SSPs) and Recovery Plans for two critically endangered wolf species, the WCC acts as caretaker for 7 red wolves (Canis rufus), and 13 Mexican gray wolves (Canis lupus baileyi). The Mexican gray wolf and the red wolf are among the most rare mammals in North America. Presently there are approximately 400 Mexican gray wolves and fewer than 300 red wolves remaining in the world.

Below are brief introductions to the wolves with links to the live webcams. Enjoy and please let us know if you see anything interesting!

 

ATKA

  • Adopt Atka

  • About Atka
    Atka is the oldest ambassador wolf at the Wolf Conservation Center (WCC). He arrived at the WCC from Minnesota when he was just 8 days old. He was raised by the WCC staff, volunteers, ambassador wolves and Eno. Eno was the WCC’s resident German Shepherd and ambassador wolf nanny. On July 5th, 2005 we were forced to say goodbye to our friend Eno, he passed away at the age of 12. Atka lived with Apache, Kaila and Lukas as a member of the ambassador family until the age of three. At this age, Atka began to challenge Apache for his leadership (alpha) position in the pack. This is natural behavior as most wild wolves disperse from their natal packs between the age or 2 and 3 years old to establish their own families. In December of 2005, we helped Atka disperse to his new home, a brand new enclosure adjacent to his old family. Read more

RED WOLVES

  • About Red Wolves
    In 2004 the WCC was accepted into the Species Survival Plan for the critically endangered red wolf (canis rufus). There are fewer than 300 red wolves in the world making it one of the rarest mammals in North America. The WCC is home to 10 red wolves. The US Fish and Wildlife Service is restoring red wolves to a portion of their traditional range in the southeast United States. Prior to reintroduction the red wolf was extinct in the wild. One of our resident red wolf families occupy an off-exhibit enclosure in the WCC's Endangered Species Facility. These enclosures are private and secluded, and the wolves are not on exhibit for the public. The WCC’s second red pack is on exhibit in the Red Wolf Exhibit which opened in October of 2009. For the first time ever visitors to the WCC are given the opportunity to see this rare an elusive species.

    Adopt a Mexican Gray Wolf

  • About Mexican Gray Wolves
    In 2003 the WCC was accepted into the Species Survival Plan (SSP) and US Fish and Wildlife Service Recovery Plan for the critically endangered Mexican gray wolf. There are approximately 400 Mexican gray wolves in the world making it one of the rarest mammals in North America. As of the beginning of 2015, 109 of these wolves live in the wild. The WCC is home to 14 Mexican gray wolves. The goal of the Recovery Plan is to restore Mexican gray wolves to a portion of their traditional range in the southwest United States. The 7 Mexican gray wolves at the WCC occupy five enclosures in the WCC Endangered Species Facility. These enclosures are private and secluded, and the wolves are not on exhibit for the public. Wolves in the wild are naturally afraid of people so the WCC staff follows a protocol to have minimal human contact with the Mexican wolves. This will ensure they have a greater probability of being successful if they are released into the wild as part of the recovery plan. Read more
