The Wolf Ethology class is an intensive week of learning, fun, and experiences that will be remembered for a lifetime.
This course covers the basic principles of wolf behavior including: behavioral development, stimuli and communication, motivation, learned versus instinctual behavior, social organization, and the adaptability and evolution of behavior. Emphasis will be placed on video observations of wild wolf behavior, research of existing ethograms and hands-on activities including time spent observing and recording behavioral data of the Center’s ambassador wolves. Two undergraduate biology credits from Vermilion Community college are available upon participant request and upon successful completion of course assignments.
The week includes up-to-date information presented by experienced wolf care staff, interpretation of raw video footage collected on site as well as in the field, activities in the field in active wolf territories, and opportunities for close observations of pack dynamics.
Don’t miss this extraordinary opportunity to learn about these complex, social animals and how they interact and communicate within their pack and to outside packs.
