Results: Founded by zoologist and TV host of "Mutual of Omaha’s Wild Kingdom" Dr. Marlin Perkins and his wife Carol, the Endangered Wolf Center, a 501c (3) nonprofit was the first conservation center in North America. The Center has helped recover two of the world’s most endangered wolves – the Mexican gray wolf and the red wolf. The Center has a well-known reputation for breeding and introducing releasable wolves into their native habitats to help restore harmony to their ecosystems. The Endangered Wolf Center has also had marked husbandry success with other species of endangered canids, including swift foxes, African painted dogs, and South America’s maned wolf. It is a member of all of the Species Survival Plans and works closely with the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Services. Because of the Center's dedication, it has become a leader in the field of canid behavioral, physiological and breeding behavior research. It is also the only Association of Zoos and Aquariums (AZA) certified related wolf facility in the world. Education plays a large role at the Center in communicating the importance of a healthy ecosystem, rich in biodiversity, where predators thrive and coexist with humans in harmony. Utilizing a strong core of trained volunteers, the staff of the Endangered Wolf Center works to increase the public understanding of conservation of species and ecosystems.

The Endangered Wolf Center is an amazing place. Teaching about the environment and how every animal and plant is connected. They also teach how humans play a role in the ecosystem and how we can care for it and keep it clean, healthy and safe. They do so much work to save endangered animals and their long and very successful history are inspiring. Thank you for what you do and I love bringing my family out to all of your wonderful, fun and educational events.
I think this organisation is well needed and yall are doin a fantastic job I only wish I knew how I could help and join the cause
Wonderful organization that works really hard to help raise awareness about wolves and dispel the ridiculous myths about them that many people, unfortunately, believe. I love the fact that they concentrate on educating the public, especially children, through creative workshops and working directly with the animals. The people who work there are truly dedicated and kind.
Awesome organization....a wonderful non-profit, working to protect and preserve our wolves from the threats facing them...
When was your last experience with this nonprofit?
Being in the trenches of apathy and insensitivity is not a place for the faint of heart. The Endangered Wolf Center works tirelessly to educate and inform those who make the effort to listen about the plight of wolves. Wolves are an essential, integral living link in our environmental chain, yet they are treated like disposable castoffs in a terrible game driven by politics and money. EWC is dedicated to dispelling the image of the "Big Bad Wolf." I applaud their efforts! I hope you will, too...
This organization is knowledgeable and dedicated to educate the public with the truth regarding wolves based on facts and science! It understands the need for a balanced environment and the roles wolves play in keeping it healthy and balanced. It is truly what a non profit should be in all aspects!
Great not for profit organisation! If the world had more people willing to stand up for animals and the environment, the world would not be in the position it is in.
A wonderful organization, dedicated to those they help. They truly care.
An excellent organization leading the effort to preserve this magnificent apex predator and critical part of our ecosystem. Thank you so much!
Wolves are vital to the ecosystem. This organization which supports, cares for,and educates the public about wolves is outstanding in the quality and breadth of their work. Endangered Wolf Center dispels myths and provides correct information to overcome the misconceptions of a fearful few. Thank you for all the work you do.
