U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service Announces Transfer of Red Wolves to Recovery Area in North Carolina

Maggie Howell from Wolf Conservation Center will be speaking on captive breeding programs and is available for a VIP meet up!

The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS) has announced their intent to transfer two critically endangered red wolf males from St. Vincent National Wildlife Refuge to North Carolina’s Alligator River National Wildlife Refuge. These two brothers can trace their roots to the Wolf Conservation Center – their father Thicket (M1804) was born at the WCC in 2010 and transferred to the island propagation site in 2013! In fact, their cousins still reside at the WCC; red wolves Charlotte (F2121) and Tyke (M2118) were born to Thicket’s brother Moose (M1803) in 2015.

A third male will also be transferred from Alligator River to nearby Pocosin Lakes National Wildlife Refuge.
