Description

Anja arrived from Paradise Wildlife Park, Broxbourne in 2015. She is a lovely 3 year old European Wolf from Norway and had been involved in dominance skirmishes with her siblings who remained at the park.

Although having had a high degree of socialisation since the age of six weeks she still has a natural ‘flight’ instict when approached by people who are unfamiliar and often appears to have a nervous disposition especially in adverse weather conditions.

Since her arrival she has settled down well in our quarantine enclosure on a hillside around an acre in size, and has plenty of cover from bushes and trees. Her new enclosure is going to be around 5 acres in size and includes a large pond as well as woodland and a grassy slope. This should be completed by Spring 2016 and hopefully by then we will have also found a new partner for her.

An unusal feature of her diet at the park included daily tit bits of tinned sardines! The practice involves the tapping of two sardine tines together until she decides to make an appearance. A cautious approach follows after which she gently takes the fishy morsels, licking the oily bits from your fingers before retreating to a more distant part of her territory. An interesting experience for the feeder!

Anja continues to become less nervous as the weeks go by and we look forward to her being moved to her new territory and resettling with another of her species.

  1. It was wonderful to see Anja last Sunday. She’s beautiful. Thank you for the privilege. I’d have bought two tins of sardines had I known it was close to her birthday!!

  2. I came with my daughter Heather to stay at the cottage this week. What I was not expecting was to fall in love with one of the wolves. Hearing Anja sing as she howled will stay with me forever. Now at home, it feels wrong not to be able to hear her. We will be back to see and hear Anja before too long. Thank you for allowing us the privilege of meeting such a beautiful and incredible being.

  3. Beautiful Anja
    What a great opportunity to give something back to one of nature’s most stunning creatures

  4. My dad and I visited last weekend and were privileged to meet Anya close up – very close up! I even touched her nose. It was wonderful to walk around the site seeing and hearing the wolves. It is a beautiful place and Tony was very kind and he generous with his time and knowledge. We learned loads about these beautiful animals.

  5. I’m in love with gentle Anja. She trusted me enough to take food from my hands. What a wonderful birthday treat! Fantastic place, we will definitely come back
