The Endangered Wolf Center preserves and protects some of the most threatened species of wolves in the world and assists the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service in reintroducing them to the wild.
The Center is located in Eureka, Mo., along Interstate 44 about 20 miles southwest of St. Louis.
On daytime tours, visitors can see all five species of canids that live at the Center: Mexican gray wolves, red wolves, maned wolves, African painted dogs and swift foxes.
The Center also offers a variety of evening wolf howls, when visitors can howl at the wolves and are likely to hear wolves howling at them.
Reservations are required for both daytime tours and evening wolf howls and are easily made by calling 636-938-5900. Information and a complete calendar of events is available on the Center's website at www.endangeredwolfcenter.org. The Center offers daytime PredaTours at 9:30 a.m. and 1 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays, and at 1 p.m. on Sundays. Private tours can be arranged Wednesday through Sunday.
The Endangered Wolf Center is a non-profit 501c(3) and receives no state or federal funding. It relies solely on revenue generated by memberships, donations, sponsorships, tours and events and gift shop sales.
