Eight more red wolves have been added to the world's only natural population of red wolves. Four adult red wolves and four captive-born pups have been released into a wildlife preserve in eastern North Carolina, increasing hopes that this endangered species can be saved for the second time.

Red wolves are a severely endangered species that can only be found in North Carolina. Their territory encompasses two wildlife refuges as well as a patchwork of federal, state, and private holdings. Counting the eight animals recently freed, the entire wild population is currently expected to be approximately 20 to 25 animals.

A court order required the release of these eight red wolves. In October 2020, the Southern Environmental Law Center (SELC) sued the US Fish and Wildlife Service on behalf of various conservation groups for failing to release additional red wolves into the wild. The Endangered Species Act, according to the SELC, was violated by the lack of action. A U.S. court ruled in January that a U.S. The service was instructed by the District Court Judge to produce a revised schedule for upcoming releases.

The most recent wolf releases, according to Ron Sutherland of the Wildlands Network, are "a tremendous start in the right direction," albeit his organisation had lobbied for even more wolves to be released. He hopes the Fish and Wildlife Service would "recommit to working on the ground with the people of North Carolina with the purpose of rescuing this population of red wolves" and "start standing up for their own programme again."

“Our goal is to collaborate to develop a plan for execution... “To achieve collectively set red wolf recovery goals,” says John Tirpak, the Fish and Wildlife Service's deputy assistant regional director of ecological services.

 

The wolf in America

Red wolves, which are smaller than grey wolves and somewhat larger than coyotes, originally roamed most of the Southeast, but massive extinction efforts, combined with habitat degradation, resulted in the extinction of most apex predators in the United States.

Red wolves had been declared extinct in the wild by 1980. A final few red wolves had been transferred from the wild to the Point Defiance Zoo and Aquarium in Tacoma, Washington, to be bred in captivity in an effort to save the species. In a first-of-its-kind attempt in "re-wilding," four breeding pairs descended from those original 14 animals were reintroduced into the Alligator River Wildlife Refuge in eastern North Carolina in 1987.
