Atka hits the beach!
Tonight the Wolf Conservation Center will be visiting the Quogue Wildlife Refuge, a nature preserve near the tip of long Island, with ambassador wolf, Atka! The program will include an awe-inspiring, up-close encounter with this important but misunderstood predator. Guests will learn about the history of wolves in the United States, the importance of wolves in a healthy ecosystem and the efforts to save these magnificent creatures for future generations. This won’t be Atka’s first visit to the shore. The cool water, pungent seaweed and stinky fish are always a treat (for Atka that is, not for those that share a van ride home with him at the end of the day!)
