The late Roger Palmer had kept wolves as a private individual for many years. The more he had learned about wolves the keener he had been to dispel the myths and misconceptions that surround them. Encouraged by his friend Erich Klinghammer the founder of Wolf Park in North America, Roger was persuaded to form the UK Wolf Conservation Trust. We have a page dedicated to the early years of the Trust.
The UK Wolf Conservation Trust has moved on from those early days. There are now four large enclosures housing the Trust's nine ambassador wolves. We have both North American and Arctic wolves, as well as a European/North American cross.
The Trust is proud to provide financial support to a number of wolf conservation projects. We support projects across the globe, from America to Ethiopia, with an emphasis on Europe.
