Howling wolves sing at the Wolf Conservation Center

Here’s just the tune to shake off a case of the Mondays.

“Did you know that sometimes wolves sing just to make music, as we do?” asks the Wolf Conservation Center.

The South Salem, N.Y. sanctuary, which promotes wolf awareness and conservation, has been taking tending to the animals since 1999. It also posts fascinating videos of its resident wolves.

Like this one of a pack of wolves howling like it’s choir practice.

“It’s called ‘social glue’ – a spreading of good feeling like people singing around a campfire, feeling closer to one another—it’s that same idea: through song, wolves reaffirm social bonds with one another,” the center says.

And these days, we could all use some more beautiful music.
