“Protecting these noble creatures”
To give researchers an opportunity to combine field studies with observations on animals within the park for a better understanding of their social behavior, which they can then use in better understanding what they see in their field studies, and apply in their efforts to determine what the species needs in order to adapt and live well in the wild.To establish and maintain representative groups of endangered species along with other animals, with a view of alerting the public to the need for action on their behalf.To expand upon our management techniques with mixed habitats of plants and animals and to make this knowledge available to others, especially focusing on the benefits of socialization in captive animal management. To develop the most effective means of disseminating the information which we have to the greatest number of people. This means educating them concerning the importance of appreciating the behavior and ecology of animals and how this relates to the general quality of life for humans, both now and in the future. We will do this through events at Wolf Park, publications, presentations off site, and through the internet, among other ways. To co-sponsor or cooperate with other groups, agencies, and institutions, both government and private, wherever possible in matters of common interests.To reach members of many different populations of people, from young children to high ranking government officials, in an effort to change attitudes towards wolves, wildlife, and wild lands in a profound way that will alter our culture and will help perpetuate these wild animals and habitats long into the future, beyond our individual lifetimes.
Went to the wolf howl last night. Cool experience that the kids really enjoyed. It's our 2nd time here and we'll be back!
We went to the Follow the Pack tour. It was amazing to see these beautiful creatures up close. It was a freezing-cold and windy day and my 13- and 11-year old kids still loved the tour. We hope to go to the Wolf Howl next time we're back in West Lafayette!
We made a stop to Wolf Park on our family road trip down to Alabama. We have 5 & 3 year old girls. We were just in time to see the staff feed the wolves their watermelon treats. It was pretty amazing to see the wolves interact with the staff. The staff were incredibly knowledgable and were more than happy to answer any of our questions. In addition to the wolves, Wolf Park also is the home to gorgeous foxes & bison. It was a nice quick stop to see some beautiful animals, stretch our legs & use the bathroom. Parking is free. Adult Admission was $15, the kids were free.
Very cool park! The tour guide was very informative and seeing all the wolves, foxes, and coyotes up close was very cool.
Great place for all nature lovers!
My husband and I enjoyed ourselves on tour and at wolf howl.
NOTE: WINTER HOURS ARE LIMITED. CALL AHEAD! Otherwise, go listen to some wolves howl!
