Wild Anniversary for the Critically Endangered Mexican Gray Wolf
Nineteen years ago today, 11 captive-reared Mexican gray wolves (a.k.a. lobos) were released to the wild for the first time in Arizona and New Mexico. Missing from the landscape for more than 30 years, the howl of the rarest and most unique subspecies of gray wolf was once again greeted by the mountains of the southwest.
We hope you enjoy the Wolf Conservation Center’s story of the Mexican Wolf as we carry out the work of their recovery.
