Red Wolves: History, Recovery Challenges, and Next Steps
The red wolf (Canis rufus) is a critically endangered wolf species found only in North America. Native to the southeastern United States, red wolves were rescued from the brink of extinction and now reside in the wild in North Carolina. A captive population of red wolves, managed by the Red Wolf Species Survival Plan (SSP), exists with the ultimate goal of release to the wild. As of March 2021, only 10 red wolves are known to remain in the wild.
