  • My first weeks at the WSC

    (08.09.2015, Noémie Despraz)

    For my project, which will normally start next week, I will work with wolves and dogs. My goal is to test their pro-sociality. 

  • Wolf-Human Relationships

    (20.08.2015, Jonas Schwarz)

    Only in retrospect the change in behavior towards me that happened over the last few months becomes noticeable. Those wolves, for instance, who hardly lifted their head at the first day when I tried to call them, got quite fast accustomed to my voice and at the moment I call them, all of them come, of course only when they are in the right mood to do so. 

  • Working with the treadmill

    (12.08.2015, Daniela Fiedler)

    The purpose of the treadmill is to simulate the collaborative hunt for prey. Wolves cover large distances to find suitable prey. Most of the time these distances are covered by the whole pack in a jog. 

  • Sleeping wolves

    a lot of observations and a kitchen clock (30.07.2015, Friederike Zenth)

    I am very happy and grateful to have gotten the chance to be and work here. My work gets more and more interesting every day. I get to know the animals, get more self-reliable and now am able to see things live I just read about before. 

  • Life in our own little pack 2.0

    (22.07.2015, Melanie Pekel)

    Sometimes a member has to leave. Leave the nice group of people you lived, worked and had fun with for 6 months.
