Wolf Conservation Center Slammed by Nor’easter
Wolf Conservation Center staff, volunteers, and wolves are sharing a collective sigh of relief today.
Wednesday’s big, blustery nor’easter, the second to hit New York’s Westchester County in less than a week, brought well over a foot of wet, heavy snow and significant fence damage to the WCC.
Thankfully, the wolves are okay.
WCC’s endangered species facility, which houses the majority of the Center’s critically endangered Mexican gray wolves and red wolves, bared the brunt of the formidable storm. Although a number of enclosures were damaged, the wolves remained safe and contained.
WCC staff has been working tirelessly to remove debris, address the compromised fence-lines. and make the pathways and roads accessible. However, many repairs remain to be done. If you are able, please consider making a donation to help us in this effort. Every penny helps!
Some good news — since our restricted area was impacted the most, all education programming remains on schedule!
