Help our Red Wolves
Red wolves are characterized by their nocturnal nature, primarily carnivorous diets, vocalizations (including howling), and reddish coats.
Morphologically, red wolves are classified midway between gray wolves and coyotes. The IUCN Red List of Threatened Species identifies red wolves as critically endangered. The primary threat to the species in the wild is hybridization with Coyotes.
Historically, red wolves were native to the south-eastern United States. Today, they only live in eastern North Carolina as a reintroduced population.
