Red Wolf Pups Born in Captivity
Four pups were born this spring in the U.S. at Chehaw Park. Boone and Belle were born on March 29th, and Flint and Faith were born on April 4th.
These wolves are a part of the Association of Zoos and Aquariums’ Species Survival Plan Program. There is an estimated 100 red wolves in the wild, all within North Carolina in the United States. 200 red wolves, which are in the Red Wolf Recovery Program, live in captivity.
Currently, the program to establish a stable red wolf population is being reviewed for revision or abolition.
