RESTORING AN ENDANGERED SPECIES GIVES EARTH DAY SPECIAL MEANING!
And restoring an endangered species means time, commitment, and money.
Did you know. . . ?
- The Red Wolf Coalition is the ONLY citizen nonprofit working full time for red wolves.
- The Red Wolf Coalition has just one paid staff person. The rest of the "worker wolves" are volunteer board members and others dedicated to the 100 wild red wolves, all of which are in northeastern North Carolina.
BACK TO THE WILD
This year, 2012, marks the 25th anniversary of the reintroduction of red wolves, an animal native to the Southeast, back to the wild after their functional extinction throughout their historical range.
The Red Wolf Coalition is breaking ground to enclose a natural, shady habitat for 2 ambassador red wolves. Seeing these beautiful animals will help people appreciate them and learn about them.
Hope is born of small things. A new crop of pups is being born now in the lowlands of northeastern North Carolina. And hope for us is born of small donations from people who care so that we can continue to do the critically important job of getting people invested in red wolf recovery.
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!
