“The Centre is not a zoo but a sanctuary for wolves that are unable to live in the wild any longer. The animals are not at the centre as exhibits and it is sometimes difficult to observe them, especially on hot days. Since the welfare of the wolves is the main concern of the centre, there are some conditions and restrictions that apply when visiting us. To ensure minimum disturbance to the wolves, the number of visitors is also controlled.”
