Scientists Learn About Wolves from a Wild Arctic Wolf!

At the Wolf Conservation Center Atka (see photo) is our best “wolf teacher”. He is our only ambassador wolf who likes to travel making him a great educator and unlike most wolves. In 2008 Atka visited over 140 schools, nature centers, museums and libraries to teach people about his wild “brothers and sisters”. It turns out that Atka is not the only arctic wolf that is helping others better understand wolves of the arctic tundra. Brutus, a wild arctic gray wolf living only 600 miles from the North Pole, is now a teacher too! The winters of the high arctic are harsh and long and scientists have yet to observe wild arctic wolves during this brutal season. Brutus will allow scientists to learn more about his kind by transmitting his whereabouts via his new satellite collar. To read more about Brutus from PHYSORG.COM click “more”
