Adopt an Animal

The bears at the Center have all come to reside here for different reasons. Many were orphaned in the wild as young cubs. Some were able to obtain human food, unsecured pet foods, garbage and other food attractants which led to them being labeled “nuisance bears”. If a nuisance bear, or problem bear, cannot be relocated in the wild, they are removed and destroyed if captive homes cannot be found. Whether these bears are cubs or adults, once they are removed from the wild they can never return. The GWDC has given these animals a second chance.

The wolves were captive-born animals that could never be released into the wild. The GWDC agreed to take numerous pups from different litters. These wolves were given the opportunity to develop strong social ties and have since formed cohesive packs. The wolves at the Center act as ambassadors, providing a greater understanding of the predator in the Yellowstone ecosystem.

The raptors are all non-releasable birds that have been injured or abandoned in the wild.

What our Guests Say!

Fantastic family fun

The Grizzly and Wolf Discovery Center is staffed with caring naturalists who are very helpful and knowledgeable. How cool is it that the kids can hide “snacks” for the Grizzly bears to find right inside their habitat! The animals were very respected and cared for.

Kids Loved it

This is my second time visiting and it seems to be better than the last time. The displays were well done and informative, the live bird show was a must. They rotate through a large selection of bears about every hour so the longer you stay the more bears you will see.
