In this fascinating 4.5 minute video co-owners Stephen and Wendy Hall interact with wolves, raptors, foxes, and other wild creatures that we rarely experience up close. Paul Larson concludes the segment by sharing Wendy’s hope that visitors to the refuge will “leave with an increased awareness about the environment… [It is] important to improve the habitat so that they can live. They can simply exist instead of losing so many species.”

But that’s the stereotype the Adirondack Wildlife Refuge and Rehab Center is trying to change. “Wolves are terrified of people and that’s something people don’t get thanks to Hollywood movies,” said Stephen Hall, co-owner of the center.
