The Wolf Conservation Center (WCC), founded in 1999 by Hélène Grimaud, is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit environmental education organization located in South Salem, NY. The WCC’s mission is to recover wolf populations in North America by teaching about wolves, their relationship to the environment, and the human role in protecting their future. The WCC accomplishes this mission by educating adults and children about their importance and plight, and mobilizing support and advocating for these species which cannot speak for themselves, and participating in two federal wolf recovery programs.

  • The best place ever in the world! The wolves are well taken care of and do a lot of education and really care about the issues surrounding our large predators. Atka, the ambassador wolf is so lovely. They have just the best people in the world working there. It is the best place to visit with your kids. You always walk out having had an awesome experience. Just can't say enough positive things here.
  • Absolutely loved this place! Very informative, Joe was great! Very friendly staff who clearly care very much about what they are doing. The wolves were beautiful - me and my husband did not want to leave. Wish we could have seen the Mexican Red Wolves more but unfortunately they were scared. Definitely planning to come back next year! Highly recommend this place.
  • The best wild life preserve. They care for wolfs until their mature and then release them in the wild. Great cause, helping educate people of wolf importance in the wild.
  • A fantastic place to learn about the conservation of these critically endangered animals.
  • Very interesting n loved seeing the wolves up close. Guide was extremely knowledgeable.
