Wolves and foxes and African painted dogs! Learn all about the Endangered Wolf Center’s five species of threatened and endangered canids, find out what the Center is doing to help preserve wolves and its wild canid residents, how it works to reintroduce these species to the wild, and why this work is vital to a healthy ecosystem and a healthy planet. You’ll have a howling good time as you view photos of the Center’s animals, handle exciting wolf artifacts, and learn what you can do to help our wild canid comrades.
Located in Eureka, Missouri, the Endangered Wolf Center is the world’s only AZA (Association of Zoos and Aquariums) certified related wolf facility.
