Welcome to the WSC - Wolf Science Center

At the Wolf Science Center we are studying the commonalities of wolves, dogs and humans. Our dogs and wolves are hand-raised by scientists and are regularly taking part in cooperation and cognitive tasks. This ensures, that we can work with them in a close and trustful relationship and that the animals are in a healthy state of body and mind. These points lead us to our guiding principles: high quality fundamental research, informing the public about the relationship triangle Wolf - Dog - Human and best possible animal keeping. 

Visit us in the Game Park Ernstbrunn close to Vienna and watch our research activities and how we work with the animals. You can also take part in one of our visitor programs.

Become a foster parent for one of our wolves or dogs!

It is astonishing, how similar wolves and humans are when we look at their social life.

Our calendar 2019 is here!

On 12 A3-sheets we present the most beautiful pictures of our wolves from the last year. Let our animals accompany you through the year 2019!


Research as Comic

The artist Renate Mowlam illustrated a lot of our research results as easy-to-understand comics. In that way, adults and children can easily get an overview about our research activities. Find out, how our animals react to unknown objects, if they help each other and whether they are risk-prone. 

Our dogs

10 dogs are currently living at the Wolf Science Center. They are coming from dog shelters in hungary or were bred in the Center. Here you can find out more about their character and where they are coming from.
