Reviews for International Wolf Center

Rating: 5 stars  

International Wolf Center is one of the bestttttttt examples of specialist in wolves caring for their every needs without over involving the wolves in their care to be humanly socialized. Over the years I have followed their dynamic care and educational background that they provide, making the public awareness strong. They introduced many wolves as pups that needed to survive and allow them entry with adult wolves, adaptation and prosperity they give. I enjoy being a member, support their efforts, and in this climate where delisting of wolve off the endangered species act, horrible things are happening to wild wolves in their few ecosystems. We need wolves to thrive not be hunted. Please spread the significance of their center we need more like this.

The International Wolf Center is a vital key to my work as a children's educator. Real time facts and no fooling around with myths and legends. They take their work seriously and as a result they are foundational in the work of preserving one of earth's most amazing creatures.

This center is world class! The center alone is a wealth of information, but the staff add so much to the experience! I always leave leaning something new. I will continue to keep visiting and supporting the International Wolf Center.

I've visited this center back in March and have planned another trip next month and I live in South Carolina. It is amazing to see these gorgeous wolves up close. The staff is very knowledgeable and the facility is beautiful. Must see.

I visited the International Wolf Center for the first time on a Girl Scout trip when I was 10 years old - and I was immediately hooked. I fell in love with wolves at a very young age, but the chance to get so close to them turned it into an addiction. Since then I have visited many times over the years, and I recently became a member as well. The IWC does an amazing job educating without prejudice - they give you the information from both sides of any topic, and let you make your own judgment.

I have loved wolves ever since I was a kid. I read every book about wolves in our local library in Philadelphia. Wolves are terribly misunderstood, and I really dislike how they continue to be viewed as something to fear. More people should live like wolves do. My trip to the International Wolf Center in Ely was a great experience. The people there are very knowledgeable, and eager to answer questions. The big viewing window looking out on the wolf yard is fascinating. Some of the wolves walk up to the window and look you right in the eye as though you are the one on display, not them. The people at IWC have a great Facebook content, and keep wolf lovers up to date with the new pups, the pack, and the retirees. Their page is constantly teaching "wolf".

I have loved the International Wolf Center in Ely, MN since the first time I visited in 2010. I have always been in awe of wolves. I am a proud member of the IWC and drive up there every year and sometimes twice a year. Since visiting there I have learned so much about wolves that it has only intensified my feelings of awe. I have adopted two different wolves, and I always look forward to what I can learn the next time I visit. I have the utmost respect for the way the curator Lori and her staff protect both visitors and the wolves. The center offers wonderful programs and the staff is always willing to respond to questions.

As a naturalist, I have lead many bus tours to Ely, MN to visit the Wolf Center. We have always had wonderful educators from the Center provide interesting and thought provoking programs with a non-biased approach. The information is up-to-date concerning wolf research and wolf politics. Our tour participants learn so much and with the experience of viewing the wolf ambassadors, they take away first-hand knowledge of wolf behavior. I have used the wolf cams during many of my own programs on wolves and the participants are always engaged and curious.

The IWC has the best programs for learning about Wolves and their importance in the natural world. An amazing facility affording viewing of captive born pack to learn about these beautiful animals. Volunteer programs and learning adventure trips provide various opportunities to learn about and engage with nature

I have visited the IWC several times since 2014, learning about wolves and also participating in programs that directly impacted the wolves environment. The educational information and opportunity to observe wolves is excellent. This is a worthwhile center which deserves continued support. If I lived closer I would volunteer year round
