Meet the Moms:
- Belle (F1226) - A wonderfully voluptuous Mexican gray wolf, Belle has six children and quickly garnered a large global following when over 300,000 people tuned in to witness her in labor in 2016. She's also notorious for demanding quality "me" time. Can any moms relate?
- Trumpet (F1505) - As a young wolf, Trumpet is a mother to quite the brood of children! She welcomed three pups in 2019 with her mate Lighthawk, and then gave birth to five pups in 2020! Although one pup unfortunately passed away, three healthy boys complete the family at the WCC; the fifth pup, a strong girl, was cross-fostered into the Saffel Pack in Arizona in 2019!
- Rosa (F1143) - Rosa is living proof that with age comes wisdom. She's given birth to ten children (with three daughters still living at home) and is quite confident in her skills as a mother and caregiver. She's tender and loving, yet is quick to end any disputes between her daughters.
- Charlotte (F2121) - Born at the WCC in 2015, red wolf Charlotte has unknowingly lived in the spotlight her entire life, as a global audience of webcam watchers has been witness to her growth as a wolf and a mother. She launched into motherhood with the birth of four pups in 2018 and she hasn't looked back! Two of her adult children, Marley and Maple, left the nest in 2020 so we're hopeful this means some much-needed quiet time for Charlotte and her mate Jack.
These beautiful matriarchs are the ultimate teachers - leading both their families and those who they unknowingly inspire with their strength and perseverance. The mothers have beamed into our homes and hearts via webcam – opening the door to understanding the highly social nature of wolves, the benefits of cooperative living, the importance of their endangered kin, and our efforts to recover them.
They call our attention to the things that really matter for wolves – work, love, patience, and family.
