The UKWCT has at its core four main objectives. These are:
To this end, the UKWCT runs a variety of programmes and events aimed at introducing new ideas about wolves to the public, to challenge any misconceptions and show the wolf as it really is. We raise awareness by holding open days, by attending country shows and by allowing members of the public to join us and visit our wolves.
We support conservation in conjunction with several projects around the world, all aimed at keeping the wolf part of the wild for generations to come.
Knowledge is the key to understanding wolves and we provide support for students wishing to conduct research into wolves. We also keep our members up-to-date with the latest goings-on in the wolf world via our flagship magazine, Wolf Print.
The Trust aims to dispel the myths surrounding wolves. To this end, we run wolf walks most weekends which give an excellent opportunity to see a wolf up close and to appreciate their mannerisms and instincts. For those studying wolves, we allow observation of the wolves in their spacious enclousures - designed to allow the wolves to exhibit their full spectrum of innate behaviours.
We have a well-developed education programme. We offer activities and tours for groups from primary school age and up, backed up by a wide variety of educational materials.
