The Importance of Education and Advocacy to Save Red Wolves
With only 10 red wolves known to remain in the wild, education and advocacy are essential.
In this in-depth discussion between the Trevor Zoo at Millbrook School; Chris Lasher, the Red Wolf SSP Coordinator; and Regan Downey, the Wolf Conservation Center‘s Director of Education, the question is posed: How can conservationists and the public support the recovery of this endangered and essential species?
The general consensus is that red wolves need science-based management and policies, and, most importantly, the public needs to be presented with effective tools to take action on behalf of red wolves.
Although the red wolf’s future can seem quite bleak, their recovery is certain with the support of an informed, mobilized public.
