In late February when breeding season was in full tilt, things began to really heat up between Mexican wolves M805 and F837. The two lovebirds had never been given the opportunity to breed before so we were thrilled to see their relationship take a romantic turn. Today we are happy to share that the pair continue to give promising indications that pups are on the way! Although we rarely see the pair in the man-made den within the top half of their enclosure, all indications suggest that it's seen a lot of activity.

We're finding that the wolves are rearranging the earth in and around the den on a daily basis, hopefully doing last minute home improvements before the birth of their first litter. Thankfully we'll need not rely on the clues they leave behind to best surmise their behavior, starting early next week people from around the world will be able to spy on them in real time via our new dencam! The camera is one of the eight webcams we're launching. So stay tuned. You could be the first one to witness the birth of their first pups.
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.
