Eighteen years ago today on March 29, 1998, 11 captive-reared Mexican gray wolves were released to the wild for the first time in Arizona and New Mexico. Missing from the landscape for more than 30 years, the howl of the Mexican wolf was once again greeted by the mountains of the southwest. This week, #LoboWeek, marks the 18th anniversary of this historic event, a significant milestone for the lobo and wildlife conservation!
In honor of this wild anniversary, dedicated youth advocates who founded Wolf Conservation Center P.A.C.K. Fellowship are putting the spotlight on individual Mexican gray wolves. They’re sharing their stories to help educate people about the remarkable contributions and sacrifice these lobos have made on behalf of the recovery of their rare species.
