Meet the Wolves
“Why get up when you can howl lying down?” the video caption reads. Alawa (nicknamed front and lazy) and Zephyr live at the Wolf Conservation Center (WCC). The 5013c non-profit homes the two captive-bred gray wolves in South Salem, New York.
Zephyr and Alawa are two of the three “ambassador wolves” that the WCC uses to educate the public about their species. Alawa, Zephyr, and their other fellow gray wolf, Nikai all have live wolf webcams you can access anytime. The WCC is also home to the endangered Mexican gray wolves and red wolves.
The WCC is home to over thirty wolves, most of which are off-exhibit in hopes to return them back to nature. They participate in the Species Survival Plan and Recovery Plan for their three breeds of wolves. Additionally, they have a 26-acre facility that has 40,000 visitors annually.
“Both species at one time were completely extinct in the wild. Under the aegis of the Endangered Species Act, reintroduction efforts in the past decade have established small, wild populations of about 100 red wolves and 75 Mexican grays,” their website reads.
