¡Adiós Lobo!

F810, one of the sixteen critically endangered Mexican gray wolves that call the Wolf Conservation Center (WCC) home as part of a Species Survival Plan under the Endangered Species Act, cannot wait to return to her vast enclosure after her annual health check up earlier this week. WCC staff and volunteers administer annual health exams once a year. With the exception of these events,our lobos live peacefully in a natural environment where these most elusive creatures can reside with minimal human contact to help maintain their timidity and best prepare them for a future in the wilds of Arizona. So far two of the WCC's Mexican wolves have been released into the wild and we hope to give some other lobos the same awesome opportunity soon. There are only about 50 Mexican wolves living in the wild her in our country.
