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.

BREAKING NEWS: A critically endangered American red wolf was illegally shot and killed in a farm field in Tyrell County, North Carolina. The male wolf, a recent release, was found with a bullet in the spine and lungs filled with mud during the autopsy.

This tragic incident was not a case of mistaken identity. Red wolves are outfitted with bright orange, reflective radio collars to distinguish them from coyotes. Any canid killed in the red wolf recovery area in eastern NC must be reported in 24 hours, by law.

The US Fish & Wildlife Service is offering a reward of $5,000 for information leading to successful prosecution in this case. Anyone with information on this illegal poaching is urged to contact North Carolina Division of Refuge Law Enforcement Captain Frank Simms at 252-216-7504 or special agent Jason Keith at 919-856-4786 ext. 34

Happy Birthday, Scarlette!🎉

Scarlette was born May 12, 2014. She made her way to Wolf Park from the Lakeside Nature Center in Missouri later that year. She was a rescue from a private owner, and not a candidate for release.

Scarlette is a very vocal vixen, female fox, who enjoys exploring her enclosure and watching the world around her. Wolf Park encourages our animals to exhibit natural behaviors. Scarlette’s favorite has to be “mouse pouncing”, which is a hunting behavior, which she shows off on a small trampoline during some of our programs.

Scarlette is a Wolf Park favorite, and has a following of adoring fans. If you would like to sponsor Scarlette, or learn more about our programs, read on wolfpark.org/memberships

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.
