RESTORING ENDANGERED SPECIES GIVES EARTH DAY SPECIAL MEANING!
Did you know?
- Red wolves are one of the most ENDANGERED animals in the world.
- Only 100 red wolves roam the wild, all of them in northeastern North Carolina.
- The Red Wolf Coalition is the only citizen nonprofit devoted completely to educating the public about red wolves.
- The Red Wolf Coalition is an advocate for red wolves and a strong voice in combating the threats to red wolves.
This year, 2012, marks the 25th anniversary of the reintroduction of red wolves to the wild after their functional extinction throughout their historical range. We celebrate this event with great joy and pride because1987 marked the year of the return of a native to the Southeast.
The road to recovery has not been easy. We face big challenges, and we depend on you to join the Pack so we can all work together.
Hope is born of small things. A new crop of pups is being born now in the lowlands of northeastern North Carolina.
Please help the Red Wolf Coalition ensure a bright future for this endangered and resilient animal.
Thank you for caring!
Happy Anniversary and Happy Earth Day, Red Wolves!
