This year has been through ups and downs for wolves; including red wolves. Recently, the Center for Biological Diversity sued U.S Fish and Wildlife Service due to them classifying the red wolf as "nonessential" despite only 13 confirmed red wolves remaining in the wild.
Although, the USFWS has a Red Wolf Recovery Plan set that calls for new locations for red wolf recovery.
The Center for Biological Diversity filed the lawsuit in hopes that it will classify the red wolf population from "nonessential" to "essential".
Red wolves are just as important as any other wolf or apex predator. They are vital to a healthy and balenced ecosystem; and with a mere 13 red wolves to remain in the wild, this could have harrowing effects on the ecosystem. But we will continue to fight for red wolves, and advocate for their survival in the wild.
