Welcome to the Wolf Science Center (WSC)

The research triangle of the WSC: wolf, dog and human connected by relationship, history and development; in the center cooperation and emotion

The Wolf Science Center was founded to investigate the common characteristics shared by wolf, dog and man. Our wolves and dogs are hand raised by our scientists and take part in regular tasks concerning cooperation and cognition. Thus we maintain a close and mutually satisfying relationship, that enables us to explore the cognitive capabilities of our animals and keeps them alive as well as mentally and physically fit.

Come to visit us at the Wildpark Ernstbrunn (deer/game/wildlife park) near to Vienna and watch some of our scientific  activities and interactions with the wolves or take part/participate in one of our programs

Bashira und Hakima picked an owner!

Who let the dogs out?! (24.09.2013, Rita Takács und Christina Mayer)

Da wir hier am WSC kein Tier zu etwas zwingen, haben wir Baschira und Hakima in Frühpensionn geschickt. Diese zwei, uns sehr ans Herz gewachsenen Hunde, fühlen sich in menschlicher Obhut wohler als im Rudel, somit dürfen Sie ab sofort bei einer unserer Trainerinnen, Christina Mayer und einer Studentin, Lena Schaidl, leben.
