Promoting wolf conservation since 1999

Ambassador Wolf Nikai

Born: April 13, 2014

Nikai (meaning “Little Saint” or "One Who Wanders”) is a gray wolf who joined the Wolf Conservation Center family in May of 2014. 

Nikai lives on exhibit with his older siblings, Zephyr and Alawa, where they help forge a connection between WCC guests and their wild kin.

The WCC‘s youngest Ambassador has been an inspiration from his adorable start. Within a month of joining the WCC family, the little beast huffed, puffed, and hiccupped his way into the hearts and minds of a global audience. His viral video “Wolf Pup Hiccups” almost broke the internet!.

As an important part of the Ambassador Pack, the stunning ambassador continues to awe WCC guests and help open the door to understanding the importance and plight of America's most misunderstood predators. Although he remains a “ladies man,” having yet to completely outgrow his uneasiness around men, his trepidation is natural and his behavior offers WCC guests a glimpse of how elusive wolves naturally are.

The wolves at the Center are supported entirely by people like you. Your interest and participation are essential, and there are many levels of sponsorship
