Blackstone, a Northwestern subspecies of gray wolf (Canis lupus occidentalis), was born in April 2022. He came to the International Wolf Center in May 2022 along with his littermate, Caz.
His name was chosen during a name-the-pup contest in June 2022. He is named in honor of Blackstone Lake in the Ely, Minnesota, area.
The International Wolf Center advances the survival of wolf populations by teaching about wolves, their relationship to wildlands and the human role in their future.
