Animal Ark is a wildlife sanctuary nestled in the hills of north Reno, in a lovely mountain setting.. They provide permanent care and sanctuary to predators who can not survive in their natural wild state for one reason or another. The Animal Ark staff is dedicated to helping create a bridge between man and animal by teaching appreciation of our natural world. They provide regular in-depth educational programs that focus on predator animals as being unique and important to our environment. Every Saturday closest to the full moon, the Ark presents “Wolf Howl Night” where visitors are allowed to attend a short wolf lecture in front of the resident wolf habitat then observe wolf pack dynamics firsthand and join in a group how with the wolves.
