Sending howls of thanks to the Wolf Conservation Center’s summer education interns!

Although diverse in experience and backgrounds (engineering, theater, wildlife biology), together they worked as a unified pack, educating countless visitors about the importance of preserving wild wolf populations. Their passion for wolves united them and will surely guide them in the years to come.

On June 28, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS) announced it’s proposal that could result with the extinction of the last wild red wolves.

Today, fewer than 30 wolves remain in the wild.

Beyond reducing the red wolf recovery area by nearly 90% and limiting the wild population to just 10-15 wolves, USFWS, the very agency charged by federal law with protecting endangered species, will allow landowners to kill red wolves who stray beyond the newly-designated recovery area – and without any repercussions.

The good news is that USFWS has re-opened their public comment period, so if you didn’t have an opportunity to comment before the July 30th deadline, now is your chance to take action.

Join the thousands of people speaking up for endangered red wolves before the August 28 deadline.
