The zoo is also running a contest offering players a chance to visit the real wolves. You can enter by creating a video on why you want to visit the wolves, then upload it to YouTube and send the link to the Minnesota Zoo. Honorable mentions will receive a WolfQuest tee-shirt while the Grand Prize winner will win a trip to visit the wolves in Northern Minnesota. Full contest details are available after the break.
