Mexican Gray Wolf M740 Arrives!

WCC’s curator and co-founder, Rebecca Bose and Hélène Grimaud open the gates!

The 7 year old male Mexican gray wolf, M740, arrived yesterday afternoon from the Brookfield Zoo in Chicago. He is currently exploring his new home and getting comfortable after his day of travel. In a few weeks, he will be united with the female Mexican gray wolf, F810, with hopes that they will breed this winter. These wolves will be given the opportunity to breed because their potential offspring would increase the genetic diversity of their rare species. If the pair proves fruitful, the family might be released into the wild of Arizona in 2010! F810 and M740 and their progeny are the “understudy” for another pair that is currently slated for release into the wild this spring. So an exciting chapter begins in the lives of M740, F810 and the WCC.

Watch a video of the the release!

    Great, and I was not there – damned.
    In what a micro region of Arizona / New Mexico will they released perhaps? I know the BRWRA a little bit. Maybe into the Primary Recovery Zone again, it seems to be left of packs?

  2. Maggie says:

    Hi Michael, the release site will be determined by Arizona Fish and Wildlife Service. Several factors will be considered in the selection of the site, including appropriate prey density, distance from occupied residences, seasonal absence of livestock grazing, and occurrence of established wolf packs in the area. The last wolf from the WCC that was released into the wild was released about 10 miles southwest of Alpine, AZ.
