Watch grizzly bears and gray wolves in natural habitats at Grizzly and Wolf Discovery Center. This nonprofit zoo specializes in its focus on these two particular animals, which are part of the Yellowstone ecosystem. The center also distinguishes itself from many other zoos by hosting only animals that are not able to survive in the wild. The zoo began as a sanctuary for bears that were unable to continue living in the wild in 1993. Wolves were added to the sanctuary in 1996. The center is now connected with Yellowstone National Park and hosts several of the park's programs.

Grizzly and Wolf Discovery Center reviews
We enjoy visiting here! We have been twice! The animals are amazing to watch!! Please go if you are in West Yellowstone! You won’t regret it! April Floyd, VA more »
Bears, wolves, otters, owls, eagles - it was great seeing them come out for feeding time or even just sleeping. The bears were fun to watch while they threw around tree limbs to get to their food... more »
After walking around for about 2 hours, I can say that this is a great experience for the whole family. We got to see many animals, but the wolves were our favorite. They also have a couple indoor viewing areas to keep warm while still experiencing the exhibits. We could have easily spent twice the amount of time there because of the indoor areas. My favorite part is that the tickets are good for 2 days! Everything was wheelchair accessible, and I cannot wait to go again. 10/10
Live bears, wolves, birds and fish. Also an otter!!
