Regenstein Wolf Woods
IN THIS EXHIBIT
Take a front row seat to experience the power and beauty of wolves and their wilderness.
Regenstein Wolf Woods is home to the most endangered sub-species of gray wolf in North America—the Mexican gray wolf. The 2.1-acre exhibit site along the scenic south shore of Indian Lake provides an enriching natural habitat for the animals to explore.
In the Wolf Viewing Gallery, one-way glass allows guests to get nose to nose with the animals. A kid-friendly and wheelchair accessible wolf den also offers a one-of-a-kind view of the animals, while a unique, multisensory theater gives the sensation of being in the midst of a wolf pack.
For the best viewing, stop by Wolf Woods as soon as the zoo opens. The wolves stay active until around 11:30 a.m. Then, once noon rolls around, they usually take a siesta, napping on the large hill in the middle of the exhibit. Around 2:30 or 3:00 p.m., the action picks up again.
The pack that lives at Wolf Woods is part of a conservation and reintroduction program listed among the highest priorities of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and the Association of Zoos and Aquariums.
