Meet the Animal Park's Coyote

The Animal Park at the Conservators' Center is one of only two facilities in North Carolina to house a coyote in captivity, bringing the opportunity to learn more about these fascinating canines to the public. As populations of coyotes have increased in the state, more and more people are seeing this archetypal trickster in their communities, on the roadside, and in the news. We are proud to offer the public a chance to meet this species and learn more about them.
