Conni – 08-13-12 WY/Canada Trip – Ely, MN
Spotting a wolf in the wild is usually a rare event, but visitors to the
International Wolf Center in Ely, Minnesota, easily enjoy viewing the center's resident wolf pack while learning more about this reclusive and often misunderstood animal.
The center celebrates its 25th anniversary this year as it continues to fulfill its mission to educate people about wolves and their relationship to the wild, as well as exploring what role humans will play in the wolves' future.

Controversy about wolves often arises as the advance of civilization further encroaches into wild lands, creating an ever-shrinking habitat for the wolves. Staff of the International Wolf Center sees accurate and objective education about the wolves, their place as predators in the ecosystem, and the need for them to reclaim at least a small portion of their former habitat as keys to making informed decisions about the real or perceived issues surrounding the wolves, their interaction with human civilization, and the survival of the species.
