Wolves in the Woods has officially opened at Dublin Zoo. The brand new habitat will be home to the pack of seven grey wolves.

The space is over 4000 m2 in size and was inspired by the natural habitat of the grey wolf.

The new habitat includes a water feature, a dedicated feeding area and three visitor observation shelters where visitors to the Zoo can observe the wolves.

Grey wolves once lived in the forests of Ireland until their habitat was destroyed and they were hunted to extinction. The last wolf seen in Ireland was in County Carlow in 1786.

In some parts of Western Europe and the USA their numbers are increasing due to heavy protection and conservation projects.

Speaking about the new habitat, Leo Oosterweghel, Director of Dublin Zoo, said, “The opening of Wolves in the Woods is yet another milestone on our journey of redeveloping Dublin Zoo into a world class zoo and provide an excellent visitor experience.

“Every detail of the habitat has been considered carefully with the wellness of the wolf pack in mind and the design was inspired by their natural habitat”.
