The snow was still falling mid-April and we were disappointed not to have seen more animals in our Canadian trip. We went to the wolf centre so we could at least say we’d seen these beautiful animals! It was very wet and sludgy with snow...More

Wolves are an Apex mammal - governments are not protecting this amazing animal and their habitat. These folks are dedicating their lives to do so. Go see and learn about Wolves, their importance to our environment and why we need them!

This place was pretty neat, the people who work here were very informative and smart. Watching the wolves was pretty cool experience and when we went they were pretty active. If your interested in wolves this is the place to check out.

The staff and volunteers here are very passionate about their wolves. It was interesting to hear the talk about them and some of the history. The wolves appear to be well cared for, its just a little uncomfortable to see them in relatively small enclosures....More

I was underwhelmed by this place. It took all but 15 minutes to take a few shots and wolves in their small enclosure and leave. They were just laying around sleeping mostly. Pretty boring. Their gift shop is massively overpriced too. I get you need...More
