Our Team

 

MEET OUR PACK

Sharing our Passion for Wildlife

The members of our staff arrived at the Endangered Wolf Center from different paths, all having one thing in common – a lifelong passion for wildlife. Many have pursued this passion since childhood and went straight into careers working with animals. Others brought years of expertise in other professions with them, wonderfully rounding out the skill sets of our team. Or, as we prefer to say, our pack.

We invite you to meet our passionate, talented and dedicated pack. And if you’re inspired by their stories, we also invite you to become a member, adopt one of our packs or support our groundbreaking work.
