Ambassador Wolf Nikai Turns Five Months Old


 How quickly our the newest member of the Wolf Conservation Center's Ambassador pack has grown! Remember when he looked like this? Within a month of joining the WCC family the little beast huffed, puffed, and hiccuped his way into hearts of minds of a global audience. He almost "broke the internet!"



Nikai isn't the only wolf growing like a weed. Wolves are mono-estrus, breeding only during the winter months. So it's during the spring that wolf pups are born. Fall is a special time for packs in North America. Whether the wolves are living on the Arctic tundra or the mountain forests of the southwest, wolf families are out searching for prey as their pups prepare for their first winter season. So throw back your head and let out a long celebratory howl for this newest wild generation- have fun, be safe, and be free.
