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.

  • My husband and I just got back from an overnight program! Friendly and very knowledgeable staff. It was a truly wonderful experience that we plan on having many times more! It is worth the drive, cost, anything! Bring the (respectful) kids.
  • I love the ethos and energy of the NYWolf organisation. I sponsor Atka and will always love the amazing work.
  • Wonderful place! Definitely take advantage of their events! It's amazing to see and hear the wolves up close.
  • Love this place and what they are doing to wolves. Great programs, viewing cams and working hard on promoting wolves. They are essential and not trophies.
  • I went on Halloween, and got a great education about wolves, as well as the opportunity to see some and howl with them. They have additional opportunities to see the wolves, which is a great reminder of how special these non-domestic animals are.
