Adopt A Wolf

$30.00$1,000.00

Deshka arrived at the AWCC in 2015. She gets her name from a river found in the Matanuska-Susitna Valley in south-central Alaska. Deshka, along with Bri, was born at Triple D Game Farm, an accredited zoological facility in Montana – but the two have no relation. Deshka has thrived since arriving at AWCC. She is naturally shy, but she has become the leader of our pack. She can often be found howling at the Alaska railroad trains as they chug through daily!

Bri arrived at the Alaska Wildlife Conservation Center in 2016. She gets her name in reference to the Bering Strait Bridge. She was brought to AWCC for the specific purpose of becoming ambassadors for their species. Bri loves working with our animal care staff, training for educational programs, and playing with Deshka. She can often be found sleeping on the roof of the hut found in her enclosure.

Lothario (pronounced La-Thar-E-O) was born in 2015 and came to the Alaska Wildlife Conservation Center in 2016. His name comes from a charming and seductive male character from a play during the 1700s. He is a black phase wolf, and, along with our other male wolf, Dirus, comes from the Zoological Wildlife Conservation Center in Oregon. Lothario loves to play and you will most likely see him with a toy or ball in his mouth.

Dirus (pronounced Deer-Us) was born in 2015 and came to the Alaska Wildlife Conservation Center in 2016. Dirus’ name comes from a Game of Thrones character, Dire Wolf, whose fictional name is Canis Dirus. He is a gray Hudson Bay wolf and, along with our other male wolf, Lothario, comes from the Zoological Wildlife Conservation Center in Oregon. He can often be found rolling in the grass or bathing in the sun.

All of our wolves were born in captivity for the purpose of being ambassadors for their species. Through the years, wolves have been given a “bad name” due to portrayals in folklore, films, and the media. We hope that by educating the public about the beauty and uniqueness of wolves, we can help shine a light on how special these animals really are.
