I was wondering has any members visited the uk wolf conservation in Reading?

It sounds great and you can walk with the wolves. I am going to book myself onto the predator to pet workshop and the wolf keeper day :)

Hello houndy,

Thanks for your information.

I have visit the homepage www.ukwolf.org from the uk wolf conservation in Reading
- very interesting.

You are a Grey Wolf friend?

I´m a member in a German Grey Wolf organisation.

We have in East Germany ca. 80 to 100 wolves in the free nature.
The most wolves live in Saxonia on the border to Poland.

Best regards
Joerg and Yoki

Looks really interesting. Always thought it was bad keeping Wolves in captivity as they're such free/wild spirits.

A friend's wife works in West midlands Safari park as Wolf Keeper. The wolves there have a large enclosure and often they leave the enclosure gates open when doing maintenance. Evidently if the wolves do go out of the gates they stand there looking perplexed, turn and go back into the enclosure. Surely that must mean that they're not unhappy there.

Wolves in the wild must be the best but better they're happy in captivity than not at all.

I think as conservation and education are the underpining reasons then that is justifiable. I have always been fasinated by wolves and their relevance to the domesticated dog of today and that is why I am going to go on the 'predator to pet' workshop they hold as they go through the taxonomy of canids and a host of other things plus you get to waalk with the wolves and there is a photo shoot opportunity - sounds good!

I looked on the website last night, the walk looks good, wouldn't mind doing that myself, it doesn't say how much it costs, or membership though?

Was suposed to go on it a couple of years ago, on a photography day
with a group from another forum, unfortunaly didnt end up going,
but from what they said it was a cracking day out, well worth the money,
one day i will get there, if i remember rightly if a few of you go
as a group, i think you get a discount, but dont quote me on that.
