Wolf Care Webinars

Full Moon Webinar
Sunday, October 21, 2018 – 5 p.m. CDT
Webinar rate: 
$15 Non-members, $12 Members

Probably the most common misbelief about wolves is that they howl at the moon or are more active during a lunar cycle. Scientists have found no correlation between wolves and full moons, but we have found correlations between howling, activity levels and feeding behavior. Join us for this one-hour webinar where we spend time with the Exhibit Pack on a Sunday post feeding day, with the smell of a food in the air, the presence of wild wolves in the Ely area may increase, resulting in some howling communication with the ambassadors.
