Education Through Preservation
Seacrest Wolf Preserve is a fully fledged, tax exempt 501(c) (3) non-profit organization dedicated to providing a safe and humane sanctuary for displaced captive wolves. Through our profound educational outreach program, we are striving to create a greater awareness of the natural world and to educate individuals on the connectedness of all living things. Our goal is to foster a greater respect for the wolf in order to preserve this magnificent carnivore, hence the Seacrest creed, "Preservation through Education".
Founded in 1999 by Cynthia and Wayne Watkins, the Seacrest Wolf Preserve provides a safe and humane habitat for wolves needing placement and rescue. Located on "The Oaks Farm" in Washington County, Florida, the farm covers over 400 acres. A haven for wildlife, it is dotted with spring-fed ponds and lakes and crisscrossed by nature trails. This setting provides a perfect environment for the incredible animals Seacrest Wolf Preserve is home to, the Gray Wolf.
The goal of the Seacrest Wolf Preserve is to provide a safe, humane habitat for displaced wolves, and to educate all who visit, especially children, about the beauty, intelligence, and importance of the gray wolf. By teaching tolerance and respect for these animals they hope to educate the public on the vital role these animals play within the natural world, and cultivate a passion to protect them in the wild. Currently the largest wolf preserve in the Southeastern United States, Seacrest is licensed by the State of Florida and the United States Department of Agriculture.
