Red Wolf Adoption Kit
The largest threat to red wolf recovery is mismanagement, leading to illegal poaching, lack of enforcement of management strategies, and even kill permits of on private lands. The near abandonment of red wolf recovery by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service combined with continued habitat loss from human development, illegal killings, deaths due to vehicle strikes, and the effects of climate change on their isolated habitat in a small coastal area, continue to jeopardize red wolf recovery and the fate of the species.
Your adoption supports our work advocating for red wolf recovery, educating community members, and taking lawmakers to court for failing to protect these critically endangered animals.
