Mexican wolf recovery program sees success in cross-fostering
Exciting news in the Mexican wolf population! The Interagency Field Team (IFT) has confirmed that a pup who was cross-fostered in 2014 survived and later went on to reproduce. This was the first cross-fostering event in the history of the Mexican wolf program and its success is considered a huge milestone for the Mexican wolf recovery program.
Wolf Haven has participated in the Mexican wolf recovery program since 1995. Since then, eight litters of Mexican wolves have been born at Wolf Haven, and three packs released into the wild. Visit the Mexican Gray Wolf page on Wolf Haven's website to learn more about their participation in this program.
Family of red wolves arrives at Wolf Haven
One of red wolves transferred to Wolf Haven
On December 15, Wolf Haven received four female red wolves from the Fresno Chaffee Zoo in California. The transfer was based on a recommendation made at the 2016 annual Species Survival Plan (SSP) meeting. The mother and her three female offspring were part of a larger family group that included the breeding male and three male offspring.
The recommendation to separate the group was based on space limitations at Fresno, as well as the decision not to breed the pair again (some of the difficult challenges of trying to conserve a critically endangered species in captivity). The females are settling into their new home here at Wolf Haven and because one of their enclosures is on the public visitor route, visitors may have an opportunity to see these stunning animals.
Tribute pavers are available through Wolf Haven's website. These brick or granite pavers come in two sizes and may contain graphics and text.
Choose to have your paver placed on the path in Wolf Haven's wolf memorial grounds or have it shipped to you for placement at your home. Prices vary depending on your selection.
