Today red wolf F1291 turns 8 years old! She has been a part of the Wolf Conservation Center (WCC) family since 2004 when she arrived as a mere yearling. F1291 is one of six red wolves that call the WCC home as participants of the red wolf Species Survival Plan (RWSSP).
Red Wolf M1587
This beauty (nicknamed "Ruby") currently resides off exhibit with her younger companion, an enormous fellow "named" M1587. M1587 weighs a whopping 95 lbs, significantly larger than the average weight of a mature red wolf, 45-80 lbs. Although the inseparable couple were selected to breed for two consecutive seasons, they have yet to prove fruitful. Perhaps they aim to extend their honeymoon before adding pups to the mix... Happy Birthday Ruby!
Located in South Salem, NY, the Wolf Conservation Center (www.nywolf.org) exists to educate people about wolves and their valuable role in the environment, and to help protect their future in the wild. The WCC is home to ambassador wolves that visitors can observe in spacious natural enclosures. We also have over 20 wolves as part of our participation in Species Survival Plans for critically endangered Mexican Gray Wolves and Red Wolves.
