Must see · Wildlife Area · Nature / Park
Watch grizzly bears and gray wolves in natural habitats at Grizzly and Wolf Discovery Center. This nonprofit zoo specializes in its focus on these two particular animals, which are part of the Yellowstone ecosystem. The center also distinguishes itself from many other zoos by hosting only animals that are not able to survive in the wild. The zoo began as a sanctuary for bears that were unable to continue living in the wild in 1993. Wolves were added to the sanctuary in 1996. The center is now connected with Yellowstone National Park and hosts several of the park's programs.
