World’s only wild red wolves may become extinct

National Geographic recently produced this video on the danger to wild red wolves in North Carolina, featuring SELC director Derb Carter.

Over 25 years into a successful U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service program in North Carolina to bring back wild red wolves back from the brink of extinction, the state’s Wildlife Resources Commission recently passed a resolution calling for an end to protections for the remaining 100 wolves in the wild.

SELC and our partners, who have successfully supported and defended this program since its inception, have expressed strong opposition to the Commission's position.

National Geographic's “For World's Only Wild Red Wolves, a Fateful Decision” details these recent developments in this unfolding story.
