Now’s your opportunity to pass on your Polish grandfather’s traditional name, or finally name a boy Sue.
The International Wolf Center in Ely, Minn., is hosting the Name the Wolf Pups contest, where you can enter to name wolf pups that will be part of the center’s ambassador wolf pack.
The two pups up for naming this year are temporarily nicknamed Bolts and Peanut. Bolts is an inquisitive yet camera-shy male, and Peanut is a vocal, robust female.
Name nomination is open until May 11, and on May 18 voting will open for the eight final names. Winners are announced June 4. Winners receive a free yearlong membership to the International Wolf Center.
The center works toward survival of wolf populations by focusing on education about wolves’ roles in ecosystems and their relationship with humans.
