Red Wolf

The Red Wolf is the rarest and most endangered of all wolves.

It is thought that its original distribution included much of eastern North America, where Red Wolves were found from Pennsylvania in the east to Texas in the south.

In the last century, however, persecution, habitat destruction, and hybridization with Coyotes has brought the Red Wolf to the brink of extinction.

Only about 270 wolves remain.
