Mission Statement:

Big Run Wolf Ranch is a non-profit, federally licensed, educational facility which specializes in the education and conservation of North American wildlife.



We would like to thank our 2017 summer interns and wish them well on their future careers. Best of luck to Maeve Tuley and Natalie Mateja. Maeve is majoring in wildlife biology at Montana State University Bozeman. Her hobbies include horseback riding, hiking, and anything outdoors. Her favorite animals at the ranch were British Columbian wolf "Jack" and the baby raccoons. Natalie is majoring in biology at University of St. Francis. Her hobbies include concerts, music, walking her dog, and caring for her guinea pigs. Her favorite animals at the ranch are North American grey timber wolf "Chenoa" and, of course, the baby raccoons :).


"Shere Khan"


We are in need of items for the animals.
