Bred and sold as exotic pets or poached or farmed for their fur, their stories are finding their way into hearts and inspiring positive change.
Stories That Inspire Change
Strengthening the Human/Animal Connection
Meet our Resident Education Ambassadors
How is Cooper a red fox if he's black and white?
While the red fox itself is not endangered, certain genes can produce rare coats like Cooper’s, a melanistic red fox whose coat could have cost him is life had poachers found him first. Cooper is here to let people know that practices like poaching, fur trapping and fur farming still somehow exist. Stories like his help us turn that tide.
That's one funny looking wolf
Phoebe is a rescued box turtle who has made herself at home in the Endangered Wolf Center. She’s a wonderful ambassador for urban wildlife, helping guests learn the best course of action for orphaned or injured animals – and why keeping them can do more harm than good.
We Are All Connected
Whether they’re greeting guests at our Center or participating in outreach programs, our animal Education Ambassadors let us have meaningful, eye-opening conversations about the exotic pet trade, poaching, trapping, fur farming, habitat loss and the ripple effect our choices can have. After all, we are all connected. Your symbolic adoption includes a 12-month membership to the Endangered Wolf Center.
