Imagine hearing the sound of a wolf howl in California’s wilderness! Wolves were eradicated in the Golden State by humans almost a century ago, but now they are moving back into their historic range. And we are happy to announce that our own wolves here at Oakland Zoo, Siskiyou and Sequoia, have just welcomed their first litter of wolf pups, at California Trail!
Because humans are still the number one cause of death for wolves, Oakland Zoo is focused on spreading a Conservation message to share the landscape with this iconic species, and thus ensuring their long-term survival.
By helping us bring attention to the importance of the wolf species, your support energizes our efforts to protect wild wolves in California and beyond.
Together, we can help Protect Wild Wolves by protecting the land where they live and learning how humans can live in harmony with wolves.
