About Us

At Woburn Safari Park we have a mixed exhibit made up of a small family wolves, males Parker and Akela, and female Tala.

These wolves live in a 12 acre enclosure which they share with our North American Black Bears.

The Canadian Timber Wolf is the largest sub species of wolf, living and hunting in packs of up to 10 or 12 members in the wild. They are the most wide-ranging of carnivores and can take prey up to ten times their size because of their hunting techniques.
