We are about to lose a species. The number of red wolves in the wild has dwindled to fewer than 20 as red wolf recovery and reintroduction efforts have all but been abandoned over the past several years. Red wolves are the most endangered wolf on earth. The red wolf is a smaller, more slender cousin of the gray wolf with a reddish color that once thrived throughout the southeastern U.S.
Lethal population-control measures all but wiped out the species by the 1970s, and today, North Carolina’s Alligator River National Wildlife Refuge is home to the only wild population of red wolves on earth.
Please urge Secretary Haaland to commit to recovering a self-sustaining and expanding population of red wolves in the wild.
