European Wolves at Paradise Park’s Howl Night


GreenWorldTV’s Anneka Svenska gets up close with 3 Norwegian wolves at WOLF NIGHT, an annual event run by Paradise Park in order to raise money for wolf conservation in the wild.

There are only about 68 wolves remaining in Norway, as the government culls them heavily. Many activists are fighting daily to protect the few remaining wolves of Norway. At one point, the wolves were hunted to extinction in 1973, but another line walked across from Finland and Northern Russia and repopulated the country again. Since then, the government has kept the population ruthlessly in check. This is in contrast to bordering Sweden who protects their wolves, so depending on which side of the border wolves walk can decide on their eventual fate.
