Nikai (meaning “Little Saint” or "One Who Wanders”) is a tan and gray wolf who joined the Wolf Conservation Center family in May of 2014.
He currently resides with his brother Zephyr, and sister, Alawa. Together with Atka, they make up the Ambassador Pack - the wolves on view as part of the WCC's education programs.
At first glance, Nikai comes across as cautious compared to his siblings, however, he quickly warms up. He is currently submissive to his older siblings, however, no one knows what the future holds.
Nikai, like his brother Zephyr and sister Alawa, is a mix of several gray wolf subspecies, but is primarily Canis lupus occidentalis – Canadian/Rocky Mountain gray wolf – a subspecies that traditionally inhabited parts of the western United States, much of western Canada, and all of Alaska. The Canadian/Rocky Mountain gray wolf was reintroduced into Yellowstone National Park and central Idaho in 1995 and 1996.
The wolves at the Center are supported entirely by people like you. Your interest and participation are essential, and there are many levels of sponsorship.
