I have been a visitor to the IWC in Ely at least twice a year for the last 13 years. The facility is beautiful and their programs are all really well run and interesting. I admire their stand on education without undo persuasion. I highly recommend that anyone interested in learning more about wolves visit the website to learn more. Go to Ely if you can, it is a great place!

I had the great honor of being a "pup nanny" to two wolf pups at the IWC this past June. This incredible experience was both humbling and inspiring. I am so proud to watch Luna and Boltz on the live webcam now and see what beautiful adult animals they have become. I know the thousands of visitors to the IWC in the coming years will see these wonderful animals and be moved by the plight of wolves in the wild. I am a life-long supporter of Wolf awareness and have found no organization more worthy than the IWC in regards to teaching people about the important role the Wolf plays in the eco-system. The IWC teaches with us about Wolves with facts not with emotion or preaching. I am an active supporter of the IWC and highly recommend anyone who is passionate about Wolves also support their efforts.

The International Wolf Center is an amazing and educational place to visit, with dioramas to give good, scientific information while not overwhelming you. Being able to see their ambassador wolves is an unforgettable experience, and well worth getting one of their Adoption Kits. Love visiting this outstanding place!

I frequently teach about wolves in classrooms throughout Wisconsin. I've had nothing but positive experiences with the International Wolf Center – through educational programs, resources on its Web site and at the staff at the interpretive facility in Ely, MN. The members of the ambassador wolf pack there are some of the most impressive educators around. I'm just part of a community of more than a million people who benefit each year from the Center’s work to provide education and outreach about wolves to people of all ages everywhere. The Center inspires me to a commitment to wolves that keeps me reaching out to the most important people in the wolf's future — today's school children.
