dc.description.abstract This study examined general habitat needs for a selected large predatory mammal. Identifying the physical and psychological needs of Canis lupus was the main focus. The objective of the creative project was to design a facility that will not only preserve the animal but also its behaviors.The study consisted of three phases. The first phase consisted of researching wild predators and the natural habitats in which they reside as well as designed habitats for these same predators. This phase included examination and evaluation of various design projects that have attempted to meet the needs of large predatory mammals. The second phase consisted of establishing design guidelines that ensure healthy habitats for wolves. The design guidelines were established by synthesizing information researched about habitats for wild wolves and habitats provided to captive wolves. The third phase consisted of the application of these guidelines in a site design.
