Adopt a Wolf - International Wolf Day on August 13th

Your generous donation will help provide food, veterinary care, and habitat maintenance for the resident wolves that live at Oatland Island Wildlife Center.


August 13th is International Wolf Day!  This annual event is an opportunity to celebrate wolves and raise awareness about their conservation. Many people around the world love and respect the wolves as very beautiful and wonderful creatures. At the same time many other people do not understand wolves and fear and have a hatred for them. Because of this misunderstanding wolves have become endangered in many areas of the world. Wolves are crucial to the environment because they tend to stabilize an ecosystem by their influence as an Apex predator.
