Arizona Wildfires Threaten Mexican Gray Wolf Recovery Area
A rapidly moving wildfire in Arizona's Apache National Forest poses a sizable threat to wild Mexican gray wolves and the dedicated crew who manage this critically endangered species. In the middle of last night, the Mexican Wolf Interagency Field Team's office in Alpine was evacuated and we haven't received word as to if or when they can return. Hoping that all our friends and lobos who are impacted by the Wallo Fire are okay and sending good thoughts to all those affected.

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.
