Halloween Party with Wolves!

October 26 @ 11:00 am - 12:30 pm

Twenty one years ago, 11 captive-reared Mexican gray wolves were released to the wild for the first time in Arizona and New Mexico. Missing from the landscape for more than 30 years, the howl of the rarest and most unique subspecies of gray wolf, was once again greeted by the mountains of the southwest. The Wolf Conservation Center participates in the Species Survival Plan (SSP) and Recovery Plan for the critically endangered Mexican gray wolf. But what does this really mean? Join us to learn what it takes to help save a species from the brink of extinction. Guests will get an inside look at the process of matching potential breeders, what criteria must be met to recommend wolves for release into the wild, the husbandry challenge of caring for animals that we rarely see and how it feels to help Mexican gray wolves resume their rightful place in the wild. Guests will visit the WCC’s Ambassador Wolves as well as potentially behold the WCC’s critically endangered red wolves and Mexican gray wolves.

Pre-registration is required.

Fees:  $14 – Adults / $11 – Children (under 12)
