Representatives from over 40 facilities participating in the Red Wolf Species Survival Plan (RWSSP) have been invited to the North Carolina Zoo in Asheboro, NC to attend the annual Red Wolf Species Survival Plan meeting! This meeting is bringing together Fish and Wildlife Agencies, many zoo representatives, endangered species reproductive specialists, and WCC curator Rebecca Bose to tackle the all issues associated with conserving one of the most rare mammals in North America, the red wolf. We're looking forward to hearing Rebecca’s reports from the meeting so we can update you on all aspects of the program including all red wolf breeding plans, transfer recommendations, and how to best recover a sustainable population in the wild. Stay tuned!
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.
