The late Roger Palmer had kept wolves as a private individual for many years. The more he had learned about wolves the keener he had been to dispel the myths and misconceptions that surround them. Encouraged by his friend Erich Klinghammer the founder of Wolf Park in North America, Roger was persuaded to form the UK Wolf Conservation Trust. We have a page
dedicated to the early years of the Trust.
The UK Wolf Conservation Trust has moved on from those early days. There are now four large enclosures housing the Trust's ten ambassador wolves
. We have both North American and Arctic wolves, as well as a European/North American cross. Look at the gallery
for some photographs of our wolves, or watch some of the videos
featuring our wolves. We have an adopt a wolf
scheme that you might like to buy as gift for someone special, or for yourself for that matter.
The Trust is proud to provide financial support to a number of wolf conservation projects
. We support projects across the globe, from America
, with an emphasis on Europe
We have a whole range of interesting Wolf Conservation Presentations available which we are happy to bring to your group or club. Maybe you would prefer to come to the UK Wolf Centre? We can do that too, making the presentation in our Education Centre where you may also get an opportunity to meet the wolves.
of our supporters group has grown to over two thousand, with lots of new events
and offers to make membership worthwhile and new things coming along all the time.
If you are not already a supporter but still want to walk with wolves why not get a group of like-minded people together and hire the wolves for a private walk.
We have become much more proactive on the education front. We employ an Education Officer who is building up a wide range of events and activities to promote conservation in all its guises to school children
of all ages. We also provide interesting and rewarding work experience
opportunities for college and university students.
