A year ago today, Mexican gray wolf 1143 (“Rosa”) gave birth to a single pup, f1505, a robust little girl nicknamed “Trumpet” for her loud squeals. Today a new chapter opens for the critically endangered kiddo, it’s her time to transition from puppy-hood to adulthood. So throw back your head and let out a long celebratory birthday howl for Trumpet! Welcome to yearling-hood!
Unbeknownst to the birthday girl, Trumpet has been creeping into the hearts and homes of a global audience thanks to the Wolf Conservation Center’s remote webcams. At just a few weeks old, Trumpet even became a TV star on ABC News – raising awareness for her critically endangered kin and our efforts to save her species from extinction.
Thank you, Trumpet, for unknowingly becoming such a powerhouse in the fight to restore Mexican gray wolves to their ancestral homes in the wild!
