Wolf pup and Border Collie play date

Nikai the 9-week-old gray wolf pup and Faye the 13-week-old border collie pup had a playdate (filmed June 16, 2014)

The two cute canids met up so that Nikai could benefit from socializing with another puppy. Faye is a perfect date for him - patient, intelligent and boundlessly energetic - she likes to control the toys, but she constantly engages Nikai and is completely comfortable roughhousing with him.

Nikai is the newest adorable addition to the Wolf Conservation Center’s Ambassador Pack. Today, as an Ambassador wolf, Nikai helps WCC wolves Atka, Zephyr, and Alawa open the door to understanding the importance and plight of their wild kin. No longer a pup, Nikai has become a powerful presence in the fight to preserve wolves’ rightful place in the environment.

This post is dedicated to the great White Lady, may she rest in peace. She left a great legacy and was an amazing ambassador for the Wolf. I’m sure many of us wolf lovers will miss her and I’m sure you’ve all heard of this tragic event. But she will live on in stories and her beauty.

“She had 14 living pups and had be put down as a result of her injuries, wildlife officials said.”

The so-called ‘White Lady’ was shot around April 10 when she was 12-years-old. She had lived for more than twice the average lifespan of a wolf in Yellowstone.

“She was one of the most recognisable wolves and sought after by visitors to view and photograph,” the park said.

“Due to the serious nature of this incident, a reward of up to $5,000 is offered for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the individual(s) responsible for this criminal act.”

New ambassador arctic wolf pups at the International Wolf Center. It was absolutely amazing being able to take care of these pups for the past week. I learned something new everyday. They grow so much in just one day. I can’t wait to see how they change in the upcoming months.  


After all the yellow coated wolf-posts, I just couldn’t leave Wolf Conservation Center’s ambassador wolf Alawa out. Her lineage is a mix of Gray wolf subspecies, but she is primarily Canadian/Rocky Mountain Gray wolf (Canis lupus occidentalis) - a subspecies that traditionally inhabited parts of the western United States, much of western Canada, and all of Alaska.

Move over Puppy Bowl… Wolf Bowl is here!

There’s been a lot of controversy leading up to Super Bowl XLIX, but this exclusive video reveals the real culprit behind Deflate Gate!

Atka is a captive-born Arctic wolf at the Wolf Conservation Center (WCC), a 501c3 non-profit organization, in South Salem, NY. When Atka isn’t busy deflating footballs, he serves as an ambassador wolf at the WCC to help teach the public about wolves and their vital role in the environment.
