He’s back…

Atka, the 9 year old Arctic gray wolf, returns to Mamaroneck on Sunday, February 26th at 2 p.m. in the Emelin Theatre.

The Wolf Conservation Center of South Salem, NY will hold the free event and  is open to the public.  The program includes an audio-visual presentation, a question & answer session, followed by an appearance of this important but often misunderstood predator. The audience will learn about the history of wolves in the United States, the importance of wolves in a healthy ecosystem, and the efforts to save these magnificent creatures for future generations.

Founded in 1999 the Wolf Conservation Center (WCC) in South Salem, NY promotes wolf conservation by teaching about wolves, their relationship to the environment and the human role in protecting their future. The WCC accomplishes this mission through educational programs which emphasize wolf biology, the ecological benefits of wolves and other large predators, and the current status of wolf recovery in the United States. For more information about the WCC visit the website  or call (914) 763-2373.
