Promoting wolf conservation since 1999

Ambassador Wolves

Wolves have been demonized and misunderstood for much of human history. Because wolves are highly politicized animals, common misconceptions about wolves can cause real harm. Helping to correct misinformation is an effective way to help wolves.  The Wolf Conservation Center's (WCC) three Ambassador wolves help open the door to understanding what wolves really are.  Alawa, Zephyr, and Nikai inspire our guests onsite in South Salem, NY and inspire thousands more around the world via live webcams.
