I've recently looked onto red wolves. They are losing habitats quickly. Reading an ad by national geographic, really gave me some satisfaction."This is a unique, highly endangered predator, and it's something that needs our help," Fazio said. "It's part of the heritage of the southeast."
This is amazing! With this in progress, red wolves will be back in no time! Even if no time actually means 10 more years."We've come a long way in 15 years," said Shauna Baron, outreach biologist for the recovery program. "The wild recovery effort started with only a captive-born stock to work with, and we now have over 100 wild-born wolves roaming throughout 1.5 million acres."
I hope your as reassured as I am now. Just thought I would spread some smilesThe FWS recovery team has started bumping up the wolf numbers by introducing island-bred wolves to the wild population. Two island breeding programs—one on Bulls Island off the coast of South Carolina, the other on Florida's St. Vincent Island—provide a place for parents to raise pups in a natural setting, softening the transition between captive breeding and reintroduction. "They train in the wild," said Baron. "It's like wolf boot camp."
