The Wolf Conservation Center teaches people about wolves, their relationship to the environment and the human role in protecting their future.

Founded by Hélène Grimaud in 1999, the Wolf Conservation Center (WCC) is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit environmental education organization working to protect and preserve wolves in North America through science-based education, advocacy, and participation in the federal recovery and release programs for two critically endangered wolf species - the Mexican gray wolf and red wolf.  The WCC's two education wolves reside on exhibit where they help teach the public about wolves and their vital role in the environment. Through wolves, the WCC teaches the broader message of conservation, ecological balance, and personal responsibility for improved human stewardship of our World.

To best prepare the critically endangered wolves who are candidates for wild-release, the center's 20 Mexican gray wolves and 10 red wolves reside off exhibit within the WCC's Endangered Species Facility.
