WOLF PARK | GREATER LAFAYETTE

Wolf Park is an education, conservation, and research facility located in Battle Ground, Indiana. Since 1972, we have studied wolves and other wild canids to learn more about their behavior and assist researchers in the wild. Each year, we teach thousands of visitors about the importance of predators in the ecosystem. We assist researchers around the world with studies of subjects including cognition, behavior, and comparative studies between wild and captive animals.

On the 5th day of #WolfAwarenessWeek , we encourage you to support Relisting wolves on the Endangered Species Act. Wolves lost their federal protections under this Act in January, resulting in hundreds of wolves being killed in states using unscientific quota systems and hunting methods. Support for lethal management of wolves is often based on misconceptions and is simply unnecessary for several reasons:

1) Wolves are a self-regulating species, meaning they control their own population numbers based on carrying capacity (food availability, disease, interspecies competition, etc)

2) Wolves do not over-hunt elk and deer populations. Instead, they create healthier herds by reducing sick and diseased animals. They also shape the behavior and travel patterns of deer, reducing car collisions with deer. Wisconsin deer-collisions have been reduced by 24%, saving an estimated $10.9 million in losses.

3) Wolves occasionally cause livestock loss, but across the U.S. they only account for less than 2% of unwanted livestock loss. Idaho is home to 2.5 million cattle, and only 0.004% have been hunted by wolves so far this year. Domestic dogs, disease, and even lightning are responsible for more cattle loss than from wolves.

To celebrate the 4th day of #WolfAwarenessWeek we’re encouraging you to attend Wolf Park’s annual Pumpkin Party this Saturday, October 23rd, from 3:00-5:00pm EST.

Wolves are facultative carnivores, meaning they need meat to survive but will sometimes eat fruit or insects to supplement their diet. Wolf Park’s wolves will often eat part of their pumpkins as they tear into them to get the treats inside. Come join the fun this Saturday! Make your reservations at wolfpark.org. Members attend for free!!

On the third day of #WolfAwarenessWeek , we’re encouraging you to participate in Citizen Science! There are many Citizen Science projects involving a wide variety of topics. Volunteers range from kids in their backyard to retired scientists, but the data collected is essential. These projects include wolf ecology and conservation. Check it out!

INFORMATIVE AND FUN GUIDED WALKING TOURS IN WOLF PARK

It is a great place!

I went to Wolf Park with a group of 32 and the staff was very friendly with accommodating us. It is a great place for group or family visits, try to go for the whole 3 hours on the days they have events going on. There are many wolves, foxes, and bison that you can see.

Nature at its Best

This is a wonderful alternative to animal watching. The park's involvement with wolves is to be admired. Personnel are knowledgeable and the wolves are so very special. Our grandchildren love this place. The night programs are especially fun!

Great Experience!

Great experience to bring the family to. The guide was super knowledgeable and made the whole experience allot of fun. We got to give ice treats to the pups and everyone had a good experience and learned about wolves and foxes.

Amazing, Educational and Beautiful

A group of us visited in the afternoon for the tour, then came back in the evening for the howl. Highly recommend doing both, as the information and experiences are different and both are amazing. The social behavior of the wolves is complicated and deserves the study this facility is doing. The social attitude of people towards wolves (usually negative) would change if they understood all the wolves contribute to the ecosystem.
