The Wolf Education & Research Center

Live Camera Feed

Come check out our brand new live camera feed. We have two cameras inside the wolf enclosures. Now even when you can't be here you can still see the Owyhee Pack.  Click on the picture to the right to go to camera page.


Our mission is to provide the highest quality captive animal care and education possible and to inspire greater public tolerance toward apex predators. We engage the public to support sustainable relationships with nature to become a social norm.

Our vision is a growing community who work toward a more sustainable relationship with nature. This is achieved through captive animal care, regional interpretive programs, and ongoing development of contemporary media. We partner with diverse culture and traditions to build a united and stronger future for all species.

Here's some of how we accomplish our goals. Click on the image of your interest!

I still have the picture you all sent me many years ago of Kamots standing on his hind legs, hanging above my bed where it has been for many years. Love that picture, he was a great wolf!
