Mexican Gray Wolves F1226 and M1133: Enclosure Cam
In October 2015, the Wolf Conservation Center welcomed a new member to the family – Mexican gray wolf F1226! She came to the WCC to be paired with Mexican wolf M1133 (“Rhett”) in hope they will make a valuable contribution to the recovery of their rare species by having pups in the spring.
Genetic diversity is the primary consideration in the selection of Mexican wolf breeding pairs. The Species Survival Plan (SSP) management group for the Mexican gray wolf determines which wolves should be bred each year by using software developed for the population management of endangered species. This is necessary because all Mexican wolves descended from just 7 founders rescued from extinction.
We won’t know the outcome of their union until “pup season” in April or May. In the meantime, we’ll keep our paws crossed!
