'Tis the Season to Chaperone
Winter time is breeding time for wolves, which means we have to make sure none of our critically endangered SSP wolves can engage in any illicit romances. Like overanxious chaperones at a high school dance, a group of Wolf Conservation Center staff and volunteers ventured into several enclosures to separate the wolves by gender. Though we had to separate Mexican gray wolf F837 (pictured) from M805 until the spring, we will have 3 breeding pairs of SSP wolves this season - two pairs of red wolves and one pair of Mexican gray wolves. We'll keep you posted if we see any signs of courtship!
