This private two-hour guided tour is the ideal way to experience the Endangered Wolf Center. Tailored to what you most want to see and learn, we’ll share insights we’ve gathered over four decades of working with and for wolves and other wild canids.
This Private Tour includes exclusive access to off-exhibit enclosures on “the hill.” There you’ll see animals that aren’t seen on our public PredaTours. There are two extra Mexican wolves and two extra red wolves who call the hill their home.
You’ll also get a chance to know wolves the way we know them, far more than what the word “predator” brings to mind. Naturally shy around humans, wolves are loyal, intelligent, and highly family oriented, with social bonds so strong that they often mourn the passing of pack members for days with their howls.
We’ll also share an inside look at three additional endangered species in our care: African painted dogs, maned wolves, and swift foxes – at just 4 to 6 pounds, they are small but mighty.
You see, to be a candidate for release in the wild, wolves have to keep that instinctive shyness around humans. So, as much as we’d love to play along with their packs or snuggle with them the way we do our pets at home, we care far too much about them to do that. Their greatest chance to survive in the wild is to stay wild. And that’s what makes the Endangered Wolf Center a place every wolf lover will appreciate.
