'Tis the Season for Wolf Pups!

Male_pup_logo_blog
Did you know that spring is "wolf pup season"? Wolves engage in mating behavior in the winter months so a gestation period of 63 days means April, May, and early June could be potential pup birthdays!

The Wolf Conservation Center is home to several potential breeding pairs, both Mexican gray wolves and red wolves, and these pairs can all be watched via webcam. Let us know if you see anything exciting!

Learn more about the Mexican gray wolf and red wolf recovery programs here.
