Donate to the GWDC
The Grizzly & Wolf Discovery Center is a not-for-profit, American Zoo & Aquarium Association (AZA) accredited facility. The GWDC depends solely on private donations, admission sales, gift shop sales and fundraising programs such as animal adoption and membership for financial support.
The core of the Center’s effort is to empower visitors with knowledge about grizzlies and wolves through live animal exhibits and educational programs.
The bears at the Grizzly & Wolf Discovery Center had to be removed from the wild because they were becoming dangerously comfortable around humans. These animals have a second chance at the Center and, by helping with the education of visitors; their lives may help other bears remain in the wild.
The wolves were captive-born and can never be released into the wild. The wolves at the Center act as ambassadors, providing a greater understanding of this predator in the Yellowstone ecosystem.
The raptors at the GWDC are all non-releasable birds that have been injured or abandoned in the wild.
Your donation will support everything from the nutrition, habitat enrichment and veterinary care for the animals, to educational programs and future expansion plans.
