Animals & Attractions

We have a small pack of European grey wolves here at Highland Wildlife Park and you can see them in Wolf Wood, which was opened by our royal patron, HRH The Princess Royal, in 2010.

You can help feed and care for our wolf pack and threatened animals around the world by donating today if you can, please support our Survival Fund.

Fun facts!

  • Wolves used to be found throughout much of the northern hemisphere, including here in Scotland!

  • They are the world’s largest wild canid

  • Their coat is generally grey with black flecks and lighter underparts, but different populations sometimes have different colour variations

  • Grey wolves look a lot like large domestic dogs but have longer legs, larger feet, a narrower chest and a straight tail

How we're helping

Wolves have suffered many years of persecution due to local beliefs and superstitions, as well as hunting and trapping for their fur. While legal protections in some areas have helped those populations recover, they are still at risk from habitat loss and fragmentation.

Our RZSS WildGenes team is working with the Himalayan Wolf project to help this elusive species:
