THE EYES OF THE WOLF
Featured Animal of the Month
By: Living With Wolves
Living in a pack not only facilitates the raising and feeding of pups, coordinated and collaborative hunting, and the defense of territory, it also allows for the formation of many unique emotional bonds between pack members, the foundation for cooperative living.
Wolves care for each other as individuals. They form friendships and nurture their own sick and injured. Pack structure enables communication, the education of the young and the transfer of knowledge across generations. Wolves and other highly social animals have and pass on what can be best described as culture. A family group can persevere for several generations, even decades, carrying knowledge and information through the years, from generation to generation.
Wolves play together into old age, they raise their young as a group, and they care for injured companions. When they lose a pack mate, there is evidence that they suffer and mourn that loss. When we look at wolves, we are looking at tribes-extended families, each with its own homeland, history, knowledge, and, indeed, culture.

Some of the birds will be released in a riverside ecological reserve spanning 864 acres in the city. The zoo has had its fair share of problems that have attracted international outcry. Last year, two sea lions died within three days of each other.
