Promoting wolf conservation since 1999

Did You Know?

Wolf pups are born blind and deaf - a pup's eyes typically open at about 11-15 days old, and hearing improves significantly by 27 days.

Saving a Species – Spotlight on the Mexican Gray Wolf

The Wolf Conservation Center participates in the Species Survival Plan (SSP) and Recovery Plan for the critically endangered Mexican gray wolf. But what does this really mean? Join us to learn what it takes to help save a species from the brink of extinction. Guests will get an inside look at the process of matching potential breeders, what criteria must be met to recommend wolves for release into the wild, the husbandry challenge of caring for animals that we rarely see and why it’s so important to help Mexican gray wolves resume their rightful place in the wild. Guests will visit the Ambassador wolves as well as the WCC’s Mexican wolves and critically endangered red wolves too. Pre-registration is required.
Fee: $13- adults / $11 - children under 12
