Who's That Lady? Beautiful Lady...
Just wanted to give people a closer look at F1397, the female red wolf who will soon be sharing an enclosure with M1483. Even though her prospective mate is in an adjacent enclosure, F1397 seems fascinated by Atka, our ambassador Arctic gray wolf, whose enclosure is nearby.
Endangered SSP wolves are usually kept away from human contact, but visitors to the Wolf Conservation Center can catch glimpses of F1397 because she is not destined to be released into the wild. Though she will live her life in captivity, she is vital to the survival of red wolves as breeding stock. If F1397 has pups that are deemed suitable for reintroduction, they will be sneaked into litters in the wild.
