All About Wolves

Wolves are included in the genus canis, which includes coyotes, jackals and even domestic dogs! 

Did you know that several critical wolf populations in North America have been making a comeback? Wolves were hunted for many years, driving the populations down into dangerously low numbers. With the protection of the Endangered Species Act and limits on hunting, these keystone predators have returned to areas of their historic range and continue on the road to full recovery.

Learn more about wolves, including where they live, how they hunt, and how we can help continue the conservation of these incredible animals.
