Protect Red Wolves

Tell FWS to Do Its Job and Save Red Wolves

Unless the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service drastically changes direction, the critically endangered red wolf will go extinct in the wild in a matter of years.

After decades of success in recovering red wolves, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (FWS) has allowed the program to dwindle. And now only about 50 red wolves survive in the wild, all within five counties in northeastern North Carolina. These shy nocturnal predators once roamed from Pennsylvania to Florida.

URGENT: Tell FWS to do its job and save these imperiled animals before it’s too late!
