Wolf Mountain Sanctuary

Maria and family recently visited Wolf Mountain Sanctuary. 

It is a sanctuary for rescued wolves located in Palmdale, and is primarily dedicated to saving the threatened species while lending a helping hand to at-risk local youth. It is also one of the few wolf sanctuaries that hosts interactive wolf educational tours.

Everyone learned about the wolves, about their life in the wild and most importantly, why save the wolf?

A wolf is so noble, so beautiful.

The wolves, as well as other endangered species, are ecological indicators.  It is by studying these species and learning how to preserve them that we learn the main factors affecting our environment.

Visit the organization's website to learn more.

Yes, you get to actually touch a wolf and could most likely get kissed by a wolf … if you want to!!
