Question by: Andrew Sainz

Question: What does your research indicate is the life expectancy of wolves in both the wild and in captivity?

Answer: TWIN works in the area of educating people about preserving wolves in the wild, and furthering an understanding of their ecological role in the scheme of things that are wild. Recent studies have found that in the wild the life span of a wolf averages around 7 to 9 years. In a captive environment, where everything is provided for them, they may survive twice as long. Thank you for your question, TWIN
