It's hard to believe that a year has passed by. We've had a whirlwind of a time, and here are some highlights. WSC built a beautiful new education center, complete with indoor bathrooms! WSC expanded our role in the Mexican wolf reintroduction project  by offering space to 5 very important young female Mexican wolves, bringing our total to 10! WSC is accepting a young male red wolf to pair with a young female red wolf in hopes of having a litter of these critically endangered wolves in the spring of 2021. When Covid-19 destroyed the business of a fellow educator, WSC reached out to offer homes to some of her education animals - an African crested porcupine,  a red footed tortoise, a ferret and a fancy bearded dragon. 

Covid-19 has impacted everyone. We miss our students, from wildlife professionals to preschoolers. We look forward to the day we can welcome them back. In the meantime we turn to our amazing donors to bridge the gap and help us through the long winter. Please consider a gift either here or through PayPal.

You are the reason we can do this critical, life-saving work, and we are forever grateful!

The Wildlife Science Center, a private 501(c)(3) located in Stacy, MN, serves as an educational resource for all ages by providing exposure to a variety of wild animals, including wolves, mountain lions, lynx, fox, bears, raptors and many more. 

The animals at the center provide opportunities for study and inspire interest in science, technology, engineering and math-from high achievers to at-risk children. We encourage all learners to expand their abilities by thinking critically, analyzing data, and asking questions.
