Red Wolves

Red wolf M1803 (Moose) was born on May 6, 2010 at the Wolf Conservation Center. He and his brother M1804 (Thicket) were the first red wolf pups born at the WCC. Their mother, F1397, currently lives in one of the WCC’s off exhibit enclosures with a hopeful mate M1566. Before the winter of 2013, M1803 and M1804 both moved away from home to find love. M1804 currently lives on St. Vincent Island in the gulf coast off of Florida. M1803 moved to the Beardsley Zoo where he met his mate F1563 (Salty), born March 26, 2007. On May 8, 2014 they became the proud parents to three pups, two girls and one boy (F2073, F2074, and M2075). In November of 2014, the entire family relocated to the WCC. 

On May 2, 2015, Mother’s Day came early for F1563! She gave birth to her second litter of pups – five males and one female (M2116, M2117, M2118, M2119, M2120, and F2121 (Charlotte). 

The family of eleven currently live in the red wolf exhibit enclosure, the same home that M1803 grew up in. Although very elusive, this family helps visitors gain a better understanding of the importance of the Red Wolf Recovery Program.

The wolves can often be seen and heard in the den during the night.
