It was wild weekend for most of the east coast thanks to Hurricane Irene and unfortunately the storm did a number in our neck of the woods too.
Although a few dozen of trees on our property came toppling down, all 25 wolves that call the Wolf Conservation Center home are doing just fine. The wolves don't care that the Center is still without power and phones, but they are very happy to know that thanks to our trusty generator, their freezer full of deer is still nice and cold. Our hearts go out to all the folks out there that didn't fare as well as Atka, Zephyr, Alawa and their critically endangered neighbors.
Located in South Salem, NY, the Wolf Conservation Center (www.nywolf.org) exists to educate people about wolves and their valuable role in the environment, and to help protect their future in the wild. The WCC is home to ambassador wolves that visitors can observe in spacious natural enclosures. We also have over 20 wolves as part of our participation in Species Survival Plans for critically endangered Mexican Gray Wolves and Red Wolves.
