Wolf Conservation Center Named Among “25 Most Interesting Webcams” of 2018!
Webcam lovers’ favorite tradition returns with the 2018 edition of EarthCam’s 25 Most Interesting Webcams. EarthCam’s 2018 list of winning webcams includes everything from breathtaking scenery to scientific experiments and even wolves at the Wolf Conservation Center (WCC)!
Year round, visitors to the WCC enjoy meeting Ambassador wolves Alawa, Zephyr, and Nikai, but the WCC is actually home to 48 wolves! Most of the WCC’s “other” 45 wolves, both Mexican gray wolves and red wolves, reside off-exhibit, but not necessarily out of view! Unbeknownst to the wolves, live webcams invite an unlimited number of viewers to enter their private lives.
In the spirit of George Orwell’s “1984,” the WCC uses webcams to observe food and water intake and monitor the physical well-being of each wolf without the animals’ knowledge. The cameras also allow staff to study family dynamics and thus make the best recommendations with respect to which wolves are most suitable for release.
The cameras also give a global audience an opportunity to learn about these critically endangered species and our efforts to recover them. Thanks to the webcams, the Center’s educational reach far exceeds the boundary of its gates in South Salem, NY! The webcams have been wildly popular all around the world!
