Aidan, Denali, Boltz, Luna and Grizzer. These ambassador wolves have fascinated thousands of annual visitors in their natural north woods exhibit at the International Wolf Center. Next spring, two new pups will arrive! Managing their health, comfort and safety doesn’t happen without planning and preparation. We need your help to get ready!

Upcoming projects that your donation will support:

  • Expansion of the wolf lab that will give us the needed space for proper pup socialization
  • Pond repairs and improved filtration system that will remove harmful algae.
  • Landscaping for waterfalls, rocks, and heat-escaping resting spots close to the windows
  • Widen the enclosure’s defensive perimeter from wildfires, falling tree limbs and other threats critical to the safety of the entire pack.

Please make a gift today (and spread the word) to help us greatly reduce these risks and improve the exhibit conditions for Aidan, Denali, Boltz, Luna and Grizzer…and the NEW PUPS!
