Stand Up

Protect Red Wolves

Red Wolves Deserve Better!

The Red Wolf Recovery Program in North Carolina is in jeopardy. On Tuesday, May 24, FWS published a notice of intent to revise existing rules for the management of the wild population of red wolves in North Carolina – a revision that could end the red wolf recovery program in the wild.

The wolves in northeastern North Carolina are the only wild red wolves in the world and they deserve the utmost protection. FWS has the science, the tools and the public support to recommit to this highly successful recovery program – all they need is the willpower and the courage to stand up to those who wish to see these native animals go extinct in the wild.

Comments are due July 24th, please tell the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service to recommit to red wolf recovery.
