Remarkable fathers can be found all over the world and one of them resides right here at the Wolf Conservation Center! Mexican gray wolf M1059 (a.k.a. Diego) wears the badge of fatherhood like a pro. He has exhibited admirable patience, affection, and protectiveness, exemplifying the amazing role that a father plays in the wolf world.
During the Wolf Conservation Center’s 2017 summer adventure in British Columbia’s Great Bear Rainforest, WCC staff and supporters were treated to a wild melody.
One of earth’s most stunning wildernesses on Canada’s Pacific coast, the Great Bear Rainforest is home to a myriad of healthy populations of species of plants, birds and animals, including subspecies and genetically unique populations of wildlife like the Spirit Bear and coastal gray wolf.
It’s the kind of place that one can still watch grizzly bears, humpback whales, spirit bears, wolves and so much more all in a single day – while learning about the challenges that threaten its unique biological diversity.
The Wolf Conservation Center’s critically endangered Mexican gray wolf pups are almost 4 weeks old! This is a significant milestone for the adorable trio. With their eyes wide open now, the kiddos are able to wander out of the den while staying near the den entrance and their menu has expanded to include small pieces of meat regurgitated by their parents and older siblings. The pups are growing rapidly so be sure to tune in to the Wolf Conservation Center webcams to follow their progress!
