Mission: Wolf – Education vs Extinction

Mission: Wolf is a peaceful sanctuary for captive wolves and wolf-dog crosses. At present, we care for 32 wolves and wolf-dog crosses. All of the animals living at Mission: Wolf share a common trait – they were all born in a cage. Right now in the US, there are about a quarter of a million wolves in captivity and fewer than 10,000 wolves in the wild. Most of the captive wolves born each year do not survive to see their first birthday, as they are commonly destroyed or neglected.  5 wolfs in snow

Every year we travel the country with our ambassador wolves to teach people about the value of wild wolves and the drawbacks of trying to keep a wild animal as a pet. Our goal is to put ourselves out of business. When we educate enough people that there are no longer captive wolves in need of rescue, we can tear down our fences, turn the wolf sanctuary into a nature center, and listen to the wolves howling in the wild.

The first is a sanctuary for wolves and a nature center for people. The other is our national traveling education program, called the Ambassador Wolf Tour, in which our directors Kent Weber and Tracy Brooks travel the country with our Ambassador Wolves to visit schools, universities, museums, and other public facilities. As the first science teacher we visited commented when we took the wolves into her classroom, the wolves themselves are the most effective teachers.
