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.
