Kago & Nushka Grey Wolves (Canis lupus)

European grey wolves were once widespread across Europe, but due to human-animal conflict they were hunted almost to extinction by the 16th Century. Today, grey wolves inhabit remote areas of Europe in a very limited portion of their former range. There have even been reports that wolves now inhabit Ukraine’s Chernobyl nuclear plant!

  • Fun Facts about Grey Wolves 

    The grey wolf is the most widespread large land mammal after humans and livestock. 

    How many grey wolves are at Howletts?  

    Kago and Nushka are the only grey wolves at Howletts Wild Animal Park and have become much more confident with age.  Our other group of wolves are Iberian wolves, a subspecies of the grey wolf also known as the Spanish wolf.  

    Why do wolves howl?  

    Wolves howl as a way of communicating with other members of their pack. While in popular culture a howling wolf is a common figure in many horror films, it is the equivalent to a domestic dog barking. You may even find a wolf is only howling because he heard another wolf howl!  

    What do Kago and Nushka eat?  

    They now readily come over for feeds when called and keepers are trying some new 'functional' enrichment items for them. They have also had fish added to their weekly diet which has gone down as a hit with Kago. Nushka prefers to roll in hers and wear them on her back instead! 

    Will these two grey wolves ever go back to the wild?  

    Kago and Nushka were rescued and will not return to the wild, however, other wolves from The Aspinall Foundation have been sent to the wild areas of Portugal to help establish the species in the area.  

    How we're helping 

    The Aspinall Foundation have sent Iberian wolves back to Portugal to help re-establish wolves in this region.
