I first came across the trust when doing a search on Google in order to gain valuable work experience with wildlife. Wolves are my favourite animals and since completing my investigative project in re-introducing them to the UK whilst undertaking the BTEC Extended Diploma in Animal Management my interest and passion for these animals has grown immensely. Therefore coming to... More

I spent a day as an adult wolf keeper at the trust and have to say it was an amazing experience. They have 10 wolves in 4 pens and my job was to check pens for holes, feed, walk with the wolves and enrich their habitat for stimulation. Any pre conceptions you have about wolves from the TV or story... More

I purchased the howl night and the wolf walking experience for my boyfriends 30th birthday. We had such a good time. The volunteers clearly love what they do and are very knowledgeable. We got to howl with all the packs, watch them being fed, listened to a very informative presentation and had plenty of photo opportunities and could ask questions... More

It was a terrific opertunity to take part in an artic walk with Wolves. It was extremely well organised and the staff were very knowledgable and friendly. The shop and conference room offered the chance to photograph some grey wolves in their enclosure through glass. It is a shame, but fully understandable, that you cannot touch the wolves but in...

I went with my daughter for a "Visit Wednesday". She is a wolf enthusiast, & was given an "adoption" of one of the wolves here as a present. We had a great time - she could see "her" wolf, and had a long, pleasant and interesting chat with the volunteer wolf keepers.We arrived at feeding time, so could see the... More

We went today, as part of the open days "Visit Wednesday" and had an amazing time! This is not a large corporate establishment but a fairly informal place run by some extremely dedicated and passionate staff and volunteers. Free coffee and biscuits is available in the reception area, and there is a small and reasonably priced gift shop too. No... More

I took a friend to the wolf conservation last Saturday, 10th January 2015. She has wanted to meet wolves for many, many tears and she was really, really excited to go. Coffee and tea with biscuits were free when we arrived and we were able to ask questions from the very knowledgeable staff and volunteers. We were introduced to the... More

My wife and I heard about this place years ago through her studying. We finally got around to visiting and it met with our expectations. We booked in for a howl night and a walk with the wolves the following day. Although the weather was extremely cold wet and windy we really enjoyed ourselves and spending time in the company...

After a few hours 'Walking with the Wolves', I realised how little I know about the world. The wolves appear tame but, as the guide and handlers explained, they are 'socialised', having grown from birth to know humans. The leader was excellent in the way he gave interesting commentary. It was altogether a wonderful experience - and thank you to... More
