The International Wolf Center advances the survival of wolf populations by teaching about wolves, their relationship to wild lands and the human role in their future. WolfLink videoconferencing programs feature dynamic, interactive learning experiences and real-time viewing of our resident ambassador wolves running, playing, napping or tussling in their naturalized northern Minnesota habitat.
