New Images from Wolf Conservation Center

Ambassador Wolves

The WCC is home to Atka an Ambassador Arctic Gray wolf that helps us fulfill our education mission, as well as two new pups Zephyr and Alawa who are just starting to learn the ropes. Zephyr (“light or west wind”) – a beautiful black male with a prominent nose and a feisty personality, and Alawa (“sweetpea” in Algonquin, and pronounced “ah-lay-ewa”) – his gentle brown and gray sister, were born on April 20 and arrived at the Wolf Conservation Center in South Salem, NY on May 27! They join Atka, the WCC's renowned, elegant white wolf, to make up the Ambassador Pack – the wolves on view as part of the WCC's numerous public programs – and are the first ambassador pups to join the education and conservation nonprofit in over 9 years!
