BENEFITING: RED WOLF COALITION

Cornelia Hutt

THE STORY:

Twenty-five years ago, there were no red wolves left in the wild. They were gone, driven from their historical range by savage persecution and habitat loss. The last remnants of the Southeast's top predator eked out a marginal existence in the swamps of the eastern TX and western LA Gulf Coast where a few malnourished wolves, riddled with heartworm and mange, were found and placed in a captive breeding program in a last-ditch effort to save the species from extinction.

The bold plan worked, and in 1987, a few red wolves were reintroduced to the wild in northeastern NC. Only 130 of these elegant, long-legged wolves remain free to roam, all of them on North Carolina's Albemarle Peninsula where they raise their families and send their haunting songs over the lowlands and wildlife refuges of this rural landscape. 

To ensure their long-term survival, people have to care enough to save them. And to care, people have to know about them and see them and learn about them. Since they are nearly impossible to spot in the forests and dense vegetation of their wild home, the Red Wolf Coalition has almost completed a wooded exhibit habitat for two captive red wolves that will be ambassadors for their species. By participating in the Red Wolf Coalition's special programs, visitors will be able to watch these animals from an unobtrusive vantage point and learn about them. The wonderful people who give through Crowdrise helped the Red Wolf Coalition with the exhibit project. Thank you for helping us protect these critically endangered animals.

Now we are asking for help with the ambassador wolves! They need food and enrichment additions for their habitat. And the Coalition needs a red wolf educator to help us teach the world about the red wolf.

Don't forget to check us out at www.redwolves.com.

Happy 25th anniversary, red wolves! You are survivors!
