Hopa travels 1500 miles to Wolf Haven - by car

One of the breeding and transfer recommendations made this year at the Mexican wolf Species Survival Plan (SSP) meeting was the transfer of F1222 from the USFWS captive management facility in  New Mexico to Wolf Haven in Tenino, Washington. Mexican wolves are the most endangered wolves in the country, with about 83 in the wild. 


F1222, (or Hopa, as she is known in-house), is a three year old female born at the Endangered Wolf Center in Eureka, Missouri and originally intended to live in the wilds of Mexico. For a variety of reasons, that didn't work out, so instead, Hopa came here & is paired with Mexican wolf M1067, known as "Brother". 


Their introduction was lukewarm at best and for a few weeks, Brother either ran Hopa off whenever she got close or simply ignored his new companion. However, the two seem to be warming up to one another and as courtship season approaches, you can bet he will be doing everything he can to win her over! Recently the pair got a new den box. You can watch their different reactions to it in this VIDEO.

Wolf Haven has a new website  
Last year,  Wolf Haven unveiled a new logo to represent our wolf sanctuary. Now we are excited to announce the roll-out of our new website, with a photo of Jesse & Shiloh on the homepage!

The new site was designed pro bono by The 619 Graphic Design Co. out of San Diego, California. Their creative work was done in fulfillment of a Getty Images Grant received by photographer Annie Musselman, whose GALLERY of wolf photos is on our site.

You can also view our Wolf Gallery, where the photos of photographer Julie Lawrence are displayed.

Our address remains the same:  We hope you find this streamlined, updated site useful and fun.
