Webinar rate: $15 Non-members, $12 Members The Center’s wolves are licensed under the direction of the Mn DNR and the USDA Animal Plant Health Inspection Service or APHIS. The protocol is legislated by the Animal Welfare Act and as part of the act, the wolves are required to have a tri-annual medical exam. Join us as we detail the Exhibit Pack’s recent exam and we discuss common canine diseases and abnormalities.
Kim Wheeler, Executive Director of the Red Wolf Coalition, will discuss the history of the red wolves in the United States. She will look back in time at their range, their designation as an endangered species and where their populations are today.
Webinar rate: $15 Non-members, $12 Members When viewing details about a wolf, many physical adaptations are apparent that help keep a wolf warm in winter, but equally important are the adaptations to keep a wolf cool in summer. Join us as we spend an hour chilling with the Exhibit Pack as they manage in the July heat.
Webinar rate: $15 Non-members, $12 Members We understand your disappointment with the delay in the 2020 pup introduction, so we thought we would take this time to remember our past pup introductions, including the 1989, 1993, 2000, 2004, 2008, 2012 and 2016 litters. This webinar will be held during our regular What’s for Dinner Program?, so you can see the pack feed on their weekly deer carcass.
Webinar rate: $15 Non-members, $12 Members The first cool days of fall can produce a change in the hormones and stimulate some rank-order dominance. Join us for this one-hour webinar as we discuss management of the Exhibit Pack as we transition into fall.
Webinar rate: FREE Join us as John Erb, a research scientist with the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources, explains how the Minnesota wolf population is estimated. This estimate is especially important as policies about how wolves are managed rely on this figure and how it changes over time.
Webinar rate: FREE John Hart, district supervisor for the U.S. Department of Agriculture Wildlife Services program, will join us for an hour to discuss what it looks like to live with wolves in Minnesota. John will also discuss wolf depredation in Minnesota, covering topics such as the frequency of wolf depredation and the number of ranchers who are affected every year in the state.
Webinar rate: FREE Glenn DelGiudice is a research scientist with the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources. He will join us to discuss how wolves, moose and deer live together in Minnesota. The three species are all important to the state and Glenn will discuss how they coexist.
Webinar rate: $15 Non-members, $12 Members Taking care of the pack doesn’t stop with the wolves. A safe and enriching facility takes a significant amount of time as well. Join us for this one-hour webinar as we feature the work projects completed by a dedicated group of staff and volunteers.
Webinar rate: FREE In the late 1940s, a few wolves crossed the ice of Lake Superior to the island wilderness of Isle Royale, creating a perfect “laboratory” for a long-term study of predators and prey. As the wolves hunted and killed the island’s moose, a young graduate student named Dave Mech began research that would unlock the mystery of one of nature’s most revered (and reviled) animals—and eventually became an internationally renowned and respected wolf expert.
