More about Nikan: Nikan arrived at our Zoo as a pup in 1999, along with his four siblings. Primarily due to old-age health issues, his siblings have passed away. At 16 ½-years-old, Nikan still enjoys a good quality of life, and takes part in daily training sessions with his keepers.
Each year, National Wolf Awareness Week takes place the third week of October.
