Endangered Red Wolves on Saint Vincent Island Survive Hurricane Michael

No need to worry, Marley! The critically endangered red wolves on St. Vincent National Wildlife Refuge – a remote barrier island just offshore the Florida panhandle – were located on the island yesterday! That means that your great uncle, M1804 or Thicket, survived Hurricane Michael!

Thicket was born at the Wolf Conservation Center in 2010 and released on St. Vincent Island, a red wolf propagation site, in 2013.

Refuge managers picked up signals from the adults’ radio collars yesterday, and they assume the 6-month-old pups who don’t have collars are safe with their parents.
