#Howl4Wolves Challenge

The Red Wolf Species Survival Plan launched the #Howl4Wolves challenge to raise awareness for the critically endangered red wolf. There are only 62 known red wolves in the wild, and all that remain live in North Carolina. This challenge was prompted by the North Carolina Wildlife Resources Commission asking the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service to remove all red wolves from the Red Wolf Recovery Area in northeastern North Carolina—thus rendering them extinct in the wild. This action would set a dangerous precedent not only for the red wolf, but for all endangered species.

The L.A. Zoo was challenged by Zoo New England, and here is our response! And in turn, we call out all of you who watched the video, the Houston Zoo, and the Riverbanks Zoo and Garden to take the #Howl4Wolves Challenge.
