The mission of the International Wolf Center is to advance the survival of wolf populations by teaching about wolves, their relationship to wildlands and the human role in their future. The Center has an administrative office in Minneapolis, Minnesota, and an interpretive center in Ely, Minnesota, the heart of the Superior National Forest and home to the largest remaining wolf population in the lower 48 states. Ely is the gateway to the pristine, fish-abundant waters of the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness.

Wolves
Visit the international educational center in Ely and see the powerful presence of live ambassador wolves just outside the window. They explore, howl, sleep, swim and eat while you watch and take photos a few feet away. Learn from staff naturalists about the wolf's life and how wolves and humans can co-exist. Most daily programs are included with admission. Sign up for a feeding program or night howling trip. If you cannot come to Ely now, watch the ambassador wolves on a live web cam 24 hrs a day on www.wolf.org/wolves/ experience/webcam.asp.
