Conservation of carnivore populations is fraught with political, social, and ecological problems. This is particularly true for red wolf recovery, in which red wolf survival and hybridization with coyotes are difficult to tackle because they are sensitive to anthropogenic factors, specifically the effects of human-caused mortality.
In an effort to broaden awareness and understanding for the red wolf recovery effort in North Carolina and the implications of USFWS’s proposed rule, the Wolf Conservation Center extended a free webinar with Joseph Hinton, Ph.D.
We hope this educational opportunity inspires participation during USFWS’s public comment period (the comment period ends July 30).
