Wolf Ethology Class Resources

Welcome to Wolf Ethology at the International Wolf Center, where you will learn from wolf care staff about wolf behavior, ecology, and biology through hands on experiences. You will practice wolf behavior data collection by observing our ambassador wolves, and monitor wolf activity in the Ely area through camera trapping, telemetry, and howling surveys. We also will share our approach to the care and management of our ambassador wolves.


Here you can access numerous resources that we will discuss and additional resources for individual learning.
