Promoting wolf conservation since 1999

Did You Know?

Wolves in North America are born during the months of April, May and the first week of June in the far north. Do you share your birthday with a wolf?

About Us

 

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, the Wolf Conservation Center (WCC) is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit environmental education organization that has been working since 1999 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 four 'ambassador 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. 

Most of the Center's critically endangered 22 Mexican gray wolves and 21 red wolves reside within the WCC's Endangered Species Facility. These enclosures are private and secluded, and the wolves are not on exhibit for the public. Wolves in the wild are naturally afraid of people so the WCC staff follows a protocol to have minimal human contact with the Mexican wolves. This will ensure they have a greater probability of being successful if they are released into the wild as part of the recovery plan.
