These wolf cams are live-broadcasting the International Wolf Center’s ambassador wolves. Even in captivity, wolves can be elusive. If you don’t spot them, look closely in the background under the trees. If you still don’t see any check back periodically. Your patience will be rewarded.
You may witness qualified Wolf Care staff providing daily physical checks and veterinary care as well as maintenance to the enclosure. Read the wolf logs for the most current information on each of the ambassador wolves. If you experience any technical issues, please contact us.
Exhibit Pack Webcam
The Exhibit Pack enclosure encompasses 1.25 acres and the pack includes four ambassador wolves: Denali, Boltz and our newest members, Axel and Grayson, our two arctic wolves. The camera focuses on the front of the exhibit where cover hay is placed during the winter months and flocks of ravens scavenge remaining carcasses. To learn more about each individual wolf, check out their wolf logs.
Retired Pack Webcam
You will notice three wolves on the Retired Pack webcam, both are Great Plains subspecies, but have different pelage coloration. Grizzer, gray in color, lives in retirement because of his age. Luna, black in color, is in retirement for staff to conduct some physical and behavioral assessments. Aidan was retired in July 2018 because of his age. They all have access to the three enclosures including the “East Side Retirement”, the “Back Habitat” and the “Pack Holding Area”. There is a webcam that can be rotated between the “Pack Holding” area which is closest to the wolf yard or the “East Side Retirement” area, where they often rest. To learn more about each individual wolf, check out their wolf logs.
Since 1989, the International Wolf Center has been managing captive wolves as the core component of ‘teaching the world about wolves’. The health and safety of our wolves is the most important part of our wolf management plan. Another important goal is to connect people from all over the world to our wolves through our webcams.
Technology has advanced significantly since our first ambassador wolves arrived in 1989 and fortunately, we’ve been able to advance with the times. With the implementation of high definition security cameras which serve as webcams, we are able to continuously assess the pack’s behavior, environmental influences that may impact the wolves, and physical declines that may be inherent with our aging pack members.
