DO YOU KNOW?
1. The RED WOLF is found "Only in America!" Red wolves once ranged throughout most of the region east of the Mississippi River.
2. The RED WOLF is the only carnivore ever to have been declared extinct in the wild, bred in captivity, and successfully reintroduced (1987) to a portion of its former range in northeastern North Carolina.
3. RED WOLVES were increasing in the wild until 2011 - 2013 when significant numbers were killed by gunshot.
4. RED WOLVES need public support and a rededication by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service to recover this critically endangered species as mandated by the Endangered Species Act.
5. The RED WOLF COALITON is the ONLY citizen non-profit working exclusively to ensure the long-term survival of endangered RED WOLVES.
"The wolf, I believe, is our teacher. But the wolf is also in competition with the people for the land, for the wilderness. Maybe that is why there is resentment. But I wonder, what do people want in the future? What is their vision? Will the world consist only of vast cities and factory farms? Will there only be pockets of wild animals preserved in parks and zoos? And if that happens, what will we become?"
Teresa Martino: The Wolf The Woman The Wilderness
"In the beginning, the people say, the Dog was put on the mountain and the Wolf beside the fire. When the winter came the Dog could not stand the cold, so he came down to the settlement and drove the Wolf from the fire. The Wolf ran to the mountains, where it suited him so well that he prospered and increased."
