Meet The Seacrest Education Team

Lindsey Banks

      Lindsey grew up on a large farm in Georgia. She has always been fascinated by wolves and passionate about animal rights. Lindsey originally earned her veterinary technician certification through The Georgia Veterinary Medical Association, but has now been certified for several years in multiple states. After coming on a VIP tour with her mom in 2019, Lindsey immediately became a fantastic and regular volunteer at Seacrest.  Her outstanding patience and knowledge base has been second only to her deep love for the Seacrest animals, and Seacrest is excited and honored to have her as part of our Education Team. In her free time, Lindsey is an avid runner and hiker. She is also involved with husky rescue and breed education, and is a proud husky mom.

Annette Johnson

     Annette has always had a deep love for animals and wildlife for as long as she can remember. Although she worked in healthcare for most of her life, she has always been a voice for animals in need. She came across Seacrest Wolf Preserve online and visited as a guest several times before beginning to volunteer here. Her clear dedication and passion led us to offering her a job at Seacrest. Annette feels blessed to work with the Seacrest Wolves and feels they have truly changed her life. When she is not at Seacrest, she enjoys being outside and spending time with her rescued pets.

First Ambassador Pack

     This pack of Ambassador Gray Wolves is usually the first pack you will meet on your visit. The pack currently has 4 members: Pawnee (4 years old), Iasha (3 years old), Dreamer (3 years old), and Amerika (3 years old). Iasha, Dreamer and Amerika are siblings. Iasha and Dreamer absolutely love meeting our guests; we call them the Seacrest Greeting Committee! Amerika and Pawnee have gentle souls and enjoy getting rubs and loves from our guests. Amerika is the shy girl of the pack. She is stunning and very curious of our guests, but does not  always feel brave enough to interact with guests. However, when Amerika does share her attention and love, she always captures the hearts of Seacrest guests. 

"Brat" Pack

     The "Brat" Pack (Gray Wolves) was lovingly given this name by a group of volunteers years ago, and despite a complete turn over of members since receiving the nickname, all the wolves in this pack seem to always live up to the name. Each member of the Seacrest "Brat" Pack has a unique innocently mischievous trait, which makes these wolves adorably lovable and captures the hearts of our all guests. Currently, the "Brat" Pack has 3 members: Apache and Mesa (4 years old and litter mates), and Freedom (3 years old). Although this is the smallest the pack has been in years, the Seacrest "Brats" always leave the biggest impression! 

Arctic Ambassador Pack

     The Seacrest Arctic Wolf Pack currently has 4 members: Inuk (17 years old), Spirit Prince (8 years old), and Kaya and Kenai (2 year old pups and litter mates). Kaya and Kenai are Seacrest's youngest wolves, as well as the only two wolves at Seacrest not born through our breeding program. Kenai tends to be shy around big groups, but do not let this fool you! On VIP tours, Kaya and Kenai can be the "trouble twins", always getting into pup mischief and leaving their paw print on our guests heart. Spirit Prince is stunning and a bit shy. When he does interact, he loves butt rubs more than anything and will do a little "butt rub dance" if you scratch him just right. Inuk is our least interactive Wolf Ambassador, but not because he does not want to be loved on by guests. Inuk is the alpha male of the Arctic Pack, and takes his role as alpha very seriously; always close by and curious, but staying alert to his pack and territory when guests visit. He does gift himself to a select few guests, and it is always a special connection that guests remember forever. 

Maverick & Gray Cloud

     Maverick (4 years old) and Gray Cloud  (10 years old) are always full of love and super excited to have guests visit! Both of them originally were members of the First Pack, but needed to be removed due to pack shifts. However, they were far from ready to be retired from public visits, so once acclimated and comfortable in their new habitat, they began to serve as Gray Wolf Ambassadors again! If you meet these Seacrest Ambassadors Wolves, you can expect an exuberant welcome full of love from Gray Cloud, while Maverick carefully sniffs and inspects you. Once Maverick is done with his olfactory investigation, he could sit all day and let you scratch him and he will express his gratitude with gentle kisses!

Miska & Baby Chaco

    Miska (Arctic Wolf; 6 years old) and Baby Chaco (British Columbian Wolf; 7 years old) end up meeting most guest through the fence line only. Miska is known as "the tender one" at Seacrest. He is gentle, full of love and always concerned with the well-being of pack members and humans like! He originally was part of the Arctic Ambassador Pack, but  because of shifts in pack dynamics, we were forced to remove him. Baby Chaco was the only survivor of her litter and so her mother spoiled her and never properly disciplined her when she was young. She was constantly in trouble with other pack members as an adult. Shifts in pack dynamics caused us to have to remove her, and who better to pair her with than Miska, "the tender one". She tends to manipulate guests into giving her attention and love by exaggerating a limp and whining. Baby Chaco is truly a character that all guest instantly fall in love with once they meet her and hear her story!!

What Our Visitors Had To Say

"Closest thing to Heaven on Earth!"

"Being able to learn more about the care and conservation of these beautiful, social creatures is amazing. Better yet, you get to walk around with them and even pet and howl with them. Amazing experience!"
