Wolves can make a variety of vocalizations. They growl, whimper, whine, bark, huff, howl… Although the wolf’s howl is has been the inspiration for films, essays, poems, etc… we think there is another sound that evokes equal levels of emotion and excitement – a wolf pup’s hiccup!
Eight-week-old gray wolf pup Nikai is the newest adorable addition to the Wolf Conservation Center‘s Ambassador Pack in South Salem, NY! As an Ambassador, Nikai will help WCC wolves Atka, Zephyr, and Alawa open the door to understanding the importance and plight of their wild kin. If you’re unable to hear and see the kiddo in person, please join us here online or on Facebook to follow his growth and adventures. It should be fun (and educational) watching him thrive and become yet another powerful presence in the fight to preserve wolves’ rightful place in the environment.
