Wolf Park is an amazing place! The staff and volunteers are all science based and use the socialized wolves, coyotes and foxes to help other scientists around the world better understand these creatures. Cognitive testing and other non invasive data is gathered on their populations. The animals are well cared for and look at the people and events help their as "environmental enrichment". I have been privileged to be associated and work with the animals and staff here for over 32 years. The place just keep getting better!

These wolves have always been a part of me. From celebrating the births of the wolf pups to mourning the losses of the beloved long term wolves. They bring joy to a sad day and the beauty and education provided on this species is exhilarating.

Wolves need all the protection they can get. Thank you for giving your wolves a safe haven. More people need to be educated about wolves and how important a species they are. Your sanctuary will show your wolf ambassadors to a wide variety of people. This will help their species by educating awareness of their plight in the wild.

Wolf Park is a great place to visit. It is a learning experience for those not familiar with wolf behavior. The resident wolves are beautiful as are the buffalo and foxes. If one chooses to sponsor a wolf, they have access to personal meetings with the wolves. I truly love this place and treasure each visit.

Wolf Park is a great place to learn about the wolf. The staff is kind, knowledgeable, and care deeply for the wolves there. Sponsorships are available to enable donors to visit the wolves one on one. I truly love this place. It is a great outing for the whole family.

My family and I LOVE visiting Wolf Park! Just a 10-minute drive outside of Lafayette, Wolf Park offers a unique and educational escape into nature! We particularly enjoy "Howl Night", where wolves get to strut their stuff, the staff give us a great debriefing on wolf behavior, and we ALL get to participate (even the neighboring dogs and coyotes can be heard joining in the distance). I'd recommend Wolf Park to anyone interested in these beautiful animals.

I love Wolf Park! They do a wonderful job of educating the public about wolves and their behavior and place in our ecosystem. They have wonderful staff and volunteers as well. Of course, my favorite part are the beautiful wolves. Love them! !
They are a worthy charity and have my full support.

The Wolf Park is a great organization for wolves and humans! It is so important for people to be exposed to animals like wolves to see their true beauty and learn why it is so important for them to be protected. The park offers great events for humans from behind the scenes tour to howl nights with the wolves (I have personally been to both and theyre both great). You can tell that the staff really cares about their work and the animals they interact with. Definitely a very special place.
