Center for Wolf Re-Acclimation
The Center for Wolf Re-Acclimation and Endangered Species Monitoring Wolves have been depicted as evil creatures for centuries. The Little Red Riding Hood, Dante’s Inferno, and The Boy Who Cried Wolf are just a few examples of how we are taught, from a young age, to believe that wolves are dangerous. However, research has proven that wolves are not only friendly unless provoked, but are vital to ecosystem diversity. This diversity happens through a process called a trophic cascade, in which the re-introduction of the apex predator allows for a number of environmental benefits to occur. The Center for Wolf Re-Acclimation and Endangered Species Monitoring seeks to alter the common misconception of wolves being dangerous, whilst creating a space that allows for the wolves to be re-integrated into their natural habitats, and provide research into the resultant environmental changes. The center treats architecture and humans as creatures in order to provide a new type of environment that redefines our relationship with this mystic animal.
