generations. Through wolves, the WCC teaches the broader

successfully restore endangered wolves to their ancestral homes in

1999 the Wolf Conservation Center (WCC) in South Salem, NY promotes
wolf conservation by teaching about wolves, their relationship to the
environment and the human role in protecting their future. The WCC
accomplishes this mission through onsite and offsite education
programs. These programs emphasize wolf biology, the ecological
benefits of wolves and other large predators, and the current status
of wolf recovery in the United States. The WCC also participates in
the Species Survival Plan (SSP) and Recovery Plan for the critically
endangered Mexican gray wolf and the red wolf. For more information
