Young Conservationists Partner up with the WCC!

May 26, 2010

Thanks to Woodmere Middle School’s Diane Bentivegna, a fine group of 8th graders are well prepared for meeting the environmental challenges of the future. Wolves have always been among Ms Bentivegna’s passions and after Atka’s visit to Woodmere Middle School in 2006, students and teachers alike began to embrace the wolf as well. Ms. Bentivegna…

Today is Atka’s birthday! It’s hard to believe that our favorite Arctic gray wolf is now 8 years old. It seems like just yesterday that he was just a wee pup here at the Wolf Conservation Center. We cannot thank Atka enough for the the wonderful work he has accomplished. A true ambassador, he has…

Since it had been a few days since we saw any signs of M1803 and M1804, the red wolf pups born last week at the Wolf Conservation Center in South Salem, NY, we decided to take a quick look to make sure they were ok. The enclosure is sizable and has some areas of thick…
