Ambassador Wolf Atka Returns to Peabody Museum in New Haven
NEW HAVEN - The Peabody Museum of Natural History will welcome back Atka, a 90-pound arctic wolf with a thick white coat and bright yellow eyes, in two upcoming presentations, according to a release.
"Atka resides at the Wolf Conservation Center in South Salem, N.Y. Since its founding in 1999, the Center has promoted the conservation of this often misunderstood species by teaching about wolves, their relationship to the environment and our role in their protection," the release said.
"Atka is an ambassador wolf whose job it is to travel to different places as a representative of his species to help clear up the misunderstandings. He is among the Museum’s most popular guests over the years," the release said. Two presentations are scheduled, for 1 and 2 p.m. May 3
Early arrival is suggested as space is limited. Parking is free in the Peabody lot and adjacent Yale lots, the entrance of which is on Whitney Avenue at Humphrey Street, one block north of the Museum.
The event will be held in the third floor auditorium, at the Yale Peabody Museum, 170 Whitney Ave.
Free with museum admission of $5-$9, under age 3 free
