Ambassador Wolf Milestone – It’s Atka’s Birthday!


Today Ambassador Wolf Atka turns 14 years old! The confident and charismatic ambassador has won the hearts and opened the minds of hundreds of thousands of people in his lifetime. He’s a powerful presence in the fight to preserve wolves’ rightful place in the environment, and for the Wolf Conservation Center staff and volunteers, the best boss we’ll ever have.

 Atka has “touched” so many since his puppy-hood. He’s traveled to thousands of schools, libraries, museums, and more, always impressing the masses with his rock-star attitude. Although Atka has been easing into retirement for about a year now, his inner road-warrior get restless so he continues to travel locally once or twice a month. He’s feeling great and isn’t ready to quit!

He stands out as a leader delivering enchanting howls that have an incredible ability to empower guests, volunteers, supporters, and staff with ambition and hope.  Atka is remarkable for the joy he takes in teaching others, the honest pleasure he has in participating with them, and the grace he exhibits in the round of applause. We are so grateful for Atka and the incredible impact he’s had on so many. Happy birthday, Atka. We love you so.
