About the California Wolf Center

Our Vision

The success of wolf recovery is commonly defined solely by population numbers. However, this does not consider the polarizing controversy, on-going conflicts, and use of lethal control as a standard management tool for wolves. In comprehensive terms, we have not yet achieved true wild wolf recovery. For California Wolf Center “success” is defined by:

  • Wolves’ ability to survive peacefully
  • Thriving responsible ranching communities stewarding open space
  • Diverse communities coming together in understanding, respect and support
  • Bonnie Mcdonald

    Our Mission

    California Wolf Center is dedicated to the return of wild wolves to their natural habitat and to the people who share the landscape with them. We foster communities coming together to ensure wolves, livestock, and people thrive in today’s world.
